Pizza Bites

These would make great appetizers, but we had them for dinner with a Cesar salad and they were perfect for a weeknight dinner. They were a crowd pleaser. This is a really easy recipe. It takes a few extra minutes to put together, but you can do while sitting at your kitchen table relaxing after a long day at work.

Pizza Bites
2 cans Pillsbury pizza crust (or make your own if you want to be ambitious)
1 bag of frozen meatballs (thawed in your refrigerator)
2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 jar of pizza sauce
Pinch off a piece, or cut a square from the dough that is double the size of the meatball. Dip the meatball in sauce, then dip the meatball in cheese. (I used two small bowls, one for sauce and one for cheese.) Then put the meatball in the center of your dough and fold the dough around it, covering the meatball. Seal any seams in the dough. Repeat until you run out of dough. Place seam side down on a large cookie sheet or sheets and bake for 20 minutes or so, until brown at 350 degrees. Serve with pizza sauce and ranch to dip.
