This is a great snack to have around when you are getting a craving for something fried and greasy. These pepperoni bites will definitely satisfy you and they are baked! Kids also love'em too; plus they are so much healthier than the frozen ones at the supermarket.
10 oz can refrigerated pizza crust dough
1 c shredded reduced fat mozzarella cheese
24 slices turkey pepperoni
1 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 T Grated Parmesan Cheese
Italian Seasonings to taste
1. Pre-heat the oven to 400. Lightly coat a 9” glass pie plate with cooking spray.
2. Unroll pizza crust dough and cut into 24 even pieces. Flatten a piece and mound about 2 teaspoons of cheese in the center. Fold a slice of pepperoni and place it on top of the cheese. Fold the edges of the dough around the cheese and pepperoni and press together to form a sealed ball. Place the ball, seam side down, on the prepared pie plate. Repeat with remaining dough pieces to create 24 balls, filling the pie plate.
3. Using a pastry brush, brush the olive oil over the tops of the pepperoni bites. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning over the top. Bake for 16-20 minutes until browned. Optional Serving Suggestion: If you want you can serve them with warm pizza sauce for dipping. Yields 6 (4 bite) servings. Weight Watchers Points Plus: 6 per serving
