4 Cheese Pepperoni Pizza Bites are the perfect after school or family night treat. Kids are always hungry and as busy Moms we all get tired of hearing, “Mom, I am hungry! What’s to eat?”
My daughter was pretty hung up on those little frozen pizza bites. I kept bags of them in the freezer and when she and her friends got hungry I knew this would tide them over for an hour or so. Although my daughter and her friends loved the frozen bites, I was not so sure I was happy with what went in them. I do my best to stay away from ingredients that I can’t pronounce.
Imagine how happy I was when I found the recipe for homemade pepperoni bites. I knew my daughter and her friends would love them. I made a couple changes to the original recipe (don’t ask me where I got it, I really can’t remember!). The original recipe called for mozzarella and I while I am fan of mozzarella, I prefer a 4 cheese blend. One of the great things about this recipe is that you can make a few changes to please your family.
