Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Bites
The best part? These freeze and reheat fantastically. I freeze them in a gallon size freezer bag and pull out 4-6 of them at a time. Spritz them with water and either microwave them until heated or defrost and pop them in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Packed with Italian seasoning these bites are flavorful, moist and delicious.
