Pizza Bites

Pizza Bites

Looking for a new idea for school lunches? Try pizza bites.
These are great to make ahead, freeze, and pull out when needed!

I have often made pizza pockets for my kids’ school lunches.

This is another twist on the recipe. Pizza bites are smaller, easier to handle, and great for younger children who can’t eat as much.

Recipe for Pizza Bites

Start with pizza dough. I make mine in the bread maker, or your can buy a packaged kit.
Take a small amount of dough and roll it flat into a circle.

Make sure the dough is rolled VERY THINLY or, it will become too thick and too “bready”.

Place the dough inside a muffin tin. I used the mini muffin tins, but you could also make bigger ones.


Fill the dough with pizza sauce, fillings, and cheese.


Fold the dough up over the fillings, pinching it to make a seal.


Bake at 350 for approximately 15 minutes. Keep an eye on them, as the length of time depends on the size.
Take them out when they are golden brown.

Put in a ziplock baggie and freeze.

In the morning, take out desired number, and put into the school lunch. They will defrost by lunch time. The kids can eat them cold, or heat them in the school microwave if that’s an option.

We love to have these in the freezer for those nights you just don’t have anything in the fridge or don’t feel like making a school lunch!
