Pizza Bites or Blobs

What you are looking at is the best snack ever. Making them is a cinch. They are always devoured. Here there were Blobs.

The name may not be tempting and tantalizing, but these bundles of pepperoni and cheese are truly satisfying.

Blobs is their adopted name. A few months ago I was introduced to blobs, aka pizza bites, through Big Red Kitchen. Now I make them nearly every week for after school snacks, gatherings and even dinner {served with a side salad and veggie sticks of course}.

They are versatile. Change the filling from pepperoni to sausage {they are divine that way}, or for a more adult palate try just mozzarella and a basil leaf.

They honestly come together in a snap, especially if you frequent Trader Joe's. All the ingredients you need are sold for a meager amount of money. Here's the shopping list: 2 packages TJ's pizza dough, 1 package pepperoni, and one mozzarella log for slicing. Add those to your holiday shopping list, you will want to make these again and again for any holiday gathering {or to gobble up yourself}.

Ingredients for 24 Pizza Bites
2 count pizza dough
1 package pepperoni
1 8 oz package pepperoni
1 16 oz fresh mozzarella log
2 tbsp butter, melted
grated Parmesan cheese {for sprinkling}
garlic seasoning {for sprinkling}

1. If you are using pre-made pizza dough, let sit at room temperature for about 10-15 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 F. Spray lightly grease two pie plates.
2. Slice mozzarella log into 24 pieces. Set to the side.
3. Dust work surface with flour. Roll pizza dough into a 9x12 rectangle {this is difficult if it is your first time; don't try to get an exact rectangle, just something that looks like one}. Cut the pizza dough into 12 squarish shapes. I recommend using a pizza cutter. Cut the shorter size into 3 strips and the longer side into four.
4. Place one mozzarella cube and 2-3 slices of pepperoni onto each square. Fold dough corners into middle, like an envelope. Where the corners meet will become the bottom of the blob. Turn over and pinch together any open ends.
5. Place twelve blobs in each prepared pie plate. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
6. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with Parmesan and garlic.


  1. This is a great idea for those days when you have last minute company. You can fill those babies with anything! They look great!

  2. I like the idea of the mozzarella roll instead of grated cheese, which makes such a mess! These are always a favorite here too.
