How To Make pepperoni pizza bites

  • 1
    Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Brush a baking dish with a little olive oil and set aside.

    Fill each piece with a piece of cheese, and a couple pieces of pepperoni.
  • 5
    Seal the dough shut around the filling, and place them seam side down onto the prepared baking sheet or in a baking dish if you like them to bake together and then pull them apart.
  • 6
    In a small bowl, mix together the granulated garlic, Italian seasoning and black pepper, set aside.
  • 7
    Brush the top with olive oil, and then evenly sprinkle over the garlic and seasoning blend.

    Bake them for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
