Mini Pizza Bites – cooking with kids 18



My boys are bottomless.  They are both really active kids and eat pretty healthily most of the time and these mini pizza bites are a delicious after school snack or lunchbox treat.

There is something about going small that really appeals to my boys and these mini pizza bites are no exception.  You can top with whatever you want and they are great for adding vegetables.  These were made with mushrooms and a mini pepperoni, but we have made them with peppers, sweetcorn and ham in the past.

Ingredients:

  • Pizza base (one third of our homemade pizza base will make 24 mini pizza bites)
  • Passata or tomato puree
  • Cheese (we used grated mozzarella)
  • Topping of your choice (mushrooms and pepperoni)

Equipment list

  • Mini muffin  or cake trays (I used shallow ones)
  • Cake release spray
  • Grater
  • Knife
  • Chopping board

How to make Mini Pizza Bites

 

Prepare your dough.  We tend to pop all our ingredients in the breadmaker and then select the pizza dough function.  But it is just as easy to add to a mixer with a dough hook or get stuck in and mix by hand.

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees centigrade, 350 fahrenheit or Gas mark 4.

Roll out your dough thinly and using a circular cutter or a glass cut in to circles and place in the muffin tin which you will have sprayed lightly with cake release.

Place about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of pizza sauce on top of the dough and spread out using the back of a teaspoon.

Cook for ten to fifteen minutes depending on your oven, until cooked through, dough is golden brown, and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

These are delicious warm, but also perfect for popping into lunch boxes and they freeze well and will reheat in the oven.
