Pizza Bites

This was another recipe that is my first time making it so I'll let you learn from my mistakes!

You will need:
Pizza dough (I used pillsbury in a can)
Mozzerella Cheese
Your choice of fillings (I used Mini pepperonis)
EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
Italian herbs (I used McCormick italian herbs grinder shown in pic #2)
Pizza sauce for dipping

Preheat your oven 400 degrees (or whatever the packaging says on your dough)
Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface. Mine was a little lopsided and next time I will use a floured rolling pin to even it out.

Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into squares (at least 2"x2") I got about 20 squares out of mine.

Place cheese and toppings in center of each square. (I will probably use more cheese next time, or maybe use fresh mozz and cut it in chunks instead of shredded, but it works fine if thats all you have like me!)

Then you will take opposite corners of each square and pinch them together making a ball and place them in a greased baking dish pinched part down. I left a TINY bit of space between them so they could expand.

Brush the tops with some EVOO and put on some italian seasonings if you so choose.

Place in oven until tops are golden brown, heat up your sauce, dip, and enjoy!! (I think I baked mine about 12-15 min. but check them often!!)
