Pizza Bites

Ok, by now you all know I tend to go on a "new recipe spree".  Well I seem to be in one of those moods.  This time I found a winner over at Chaos in the Kitchen!! It was a little bit different and so delicious.  My intention was to make these and freeze them to use for our Superbowl Celebration..but my daughter changed my mind and cooked them ALL for dinner.  YUM!! The kids loved that they could just pull of a piece.  It was a huge hit!! A big thanks to Chaos in the Kitchen for a new family favorite.
Pizza Bites
2 recipes Pizza Dough (or 2 cans refrigerated pizza dough) You can find my favorite recipe here.
8 oz. block of mozzarella cheese
4 oz. sliced pepperoni, diced into small pieces
4-6 oz. ham, diced in to small pieces
2 tsp. Salad Supreme seasoning (or Italian seasoning)
1/4 cup olive oil
3 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
pizza or marinara sauce for dipping.
Prepare pizza dough. Cut block of mozzarella into 48 cubes.  If you are going to bake them right away preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 3 pie pans. 
If using refrigerated pizza dough, roll out one dough and cut into 24 pieces.  If using homemade dough just pinch off walnut sized pieces as you go.
Flatten out dough piece and place pieces of the chopped meat and one cube of cheese.  Seal the dough around the meat and place seam side down in the pie pan.
Repeat, placing approximately 16 dough balls in each pie plate. 
Once assembled, combine oil and seasoning and brush over the dough. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.
Now you can cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate or freeze or you can bake.  When ready to bake:
Bake at 400 degrees for 16-20 minutes.  Serve with warm pizza or marinara sauce.
