  • 1 Roll Refrigerated Pizza Crust Dough or Homemade Pizza Dough
  • 24 Pepperoni Slices
  • 8 Mozzarella String Cheeses, cut into thirds or smaller pieces
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • Pizza or Marinara Sauce for Dipping


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a round glass baking dish or cake pan with non-stick spray.
  2. Unwrap the mozzarella string cheese and use a pizza cutter to cut each one into thirds, and each third into smaller pieces, if desired.
  3. Open and spread out your canned or homemade pizza dough on a pan or large cutting board. Use a pizza cutter and cut the crust into 24 even pieces. Cutting tip: To get as even pieces as possible, I’ve found it’s easiest to make three cuts long-ways, then cut in half horizontally, then cut each halve three ways, giving you 24 pieces total.
  4. Place a pepperoni on each piece and top with the string mozzarella cheese pieces. Roll each piece up into a tight ball, pinching the seams together on the bottom. Place side-by-side, bottom side down into a glass baking dish.
  5. Stir together the seasonings and shredded Parmesan and combine with the olive oil. Brush evenly on top of the cheese stuffed pizza bites using a pastry brush.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes* or until the pizza bites are a light golden brown. (As always, oven times may vary)
  7. Serve immediately with pizza sauce and enjoy!
