I love me some pizza bagels. bagel bites, full sized ones. you name it, I love it.
but they are certainly not the healthiest thing to eat...and when it came to the super bowl...i was not ready to throw my diet* completely out the window.
*okay, not a diet per se...I just don't want to start eating bad again...and the super bowl is a slippery-slope for that...day of junk food!
so Bonnie and I started planning out our menu a few days before, and she was making guacamole, stuffed mushrooms, pigs in a blanket...and I was down for veggies and dip, baked mozzarella bites and pizza bites. the mozzarella sticks never made it out...but I did make buffalo chicken dip instead...not for healthy-ness, but for pure deliciousness :P
but i LOVED how the pizza bites turned out, so i thought i'd share the recipe with you all :) i found a few places on the internets that had some recipe ideas and sort of mushed them all together to make these.
I give you, pizza bites!
whole wheat tortillas
and toppings- i used mini pepperoni, but want to try peppers and onions next time!
preheat your oven to 400 degrees
using a cookie cutter- or a glass, or whatever you can cut circles with- cut as many circles as you can from each tortilla.
* I saved the extra pieces to toast up in the oven to make chips for our guacamole with :)
on a baking sheet- i lined mine with foil- place out as many mini pizza custs as you'd like to make
add the pizza sauce, cheese and toppings
sprinkle with some garlic salt and oregano
bake for 8-10 minutes *keep an eye on them, mine took a little longer, but my oven is weird...
oh yeah, then enjoy!!
an easy, and not so unhealthy way to eat pizza!!
