Pepperoni Pizza Bites

These never stood a chance.  They were so good!  I got the idea for these from the Buffalo Chicken Pizza Bites; the recipe is so adaptable and wonderful because you can add any fillings you want.  (I even tried a few of the pizza dough squares with a different sweet filling--cream cheese and strawberry jelly rolled in some cinnamon-sugar, which was also delicious.)  These are so quick, and they were the perfect snack for the first weekend of college football!

Pepperoni Pizza Bites

1 can refrigerated pizza dough
15 slices pepperoni, roughly chopped
3 oz cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp tomato sauce
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Mozzarella cheese, for sprinkling
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 425, and thoroughly spray mini-muffin tin with cooking spray.  In a small bowl, combine pepperoni, cream cheese, tomato sauce, and Parmesan cheese.  Set aside. 
Unroll pizza dough into a large rectangle onto a cookie sheet or other large surface.  Cut into 24 small squares (easiest with a pizza cutter).  Put 1 teaspoon of pepperoni mixture in the center of each square, and pinch together seams of dough.  Place seam-side down in mini-muffin tin, and sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese.  Bake 8-10 minutes and serve with pizza sauce if desired.
