I don’t know about you but I’m at the Super Bowl party for the food and commercials so when I’m planning what to bring, I take things very seriously.

Ingredients for Pepperoni Pizza Bites

These easy pizza bites take just a few ingredients to throw together. Here’s what you are going to need:

  • Rhodes yeast dinner rolls: Grab a bag of frozen Rhodes yeast dinner rolls from the freezer section at the grocery store. I love keeping these stocked at home for easy dinners and recipes. They taste homemade and you’ll totally fool everyone into thinking you we’re working in the kitchen all day.
  • Butter
  • Italian seasoning: Use your favorite brand or mix up your own.
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Mini pepperoni: I like using the mini pepperoni for this recipe. If your store doesn’t carry the mini version, dice up some regular pepperoni into small pieces.
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Rise and Prep the Dough

First up is rising the bread rolls. I like to line a baking sheet with parchment but you can also use nonstick spray if you prefer. Place 12 rolls a few inches apart and cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.

Allow to rise according to package directions. Once they look like this you’re ready to proceed with the rest of the recipe.

Assemble and Bake the Pepperoni Pizza Bites

Cut each roll into eight pieces. Add to a large bowl and toss with melted butter, Italian seasoning, shredded mozzarella and pepperoni.

Evenly divide the dough among 12-cup muffin tin that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake until golden.
