Homemade pizza bites recipe

If you don’t know how to make pizza bites or very much about what they are, it sometimes helps to think of them as tiny pizza pockets. They have a soft doughy layer and all of the goodness of pizza, but they’re wrapped up tight to keep everything contained. The only problem is that pizza bites are prone to exploding like mozzarella sticks if you cook them for too long, so be sure to set a timer and watch them closely.

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Calories: 171

Servings: 12 pizza bites

Dough ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup water (room temperature or lukewarm)
  • 3 tablespoons cannabis-infused olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons dry active yeast
  • ¼ teaspoon of spice (salt, oregano, thyme, and basil combined)
  • Pizza sauce (for dip)

Filling ingredients

  • 8 ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3 ounces of thinly sliced and diced pepperoni
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of cannabis-infused olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic


  • Large mixing bowl
  • Rolling pin
  • Deep baking dish
  • Sauce brush


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  • Mix the yeast, sugar, and water together in a bowl until all of the powder has dissolved.

  • Next up is the cannabis oil and spices, which should be thoroughly combined for an even distribution of flavor.

  • Add the flour to the mixing bowl and fold it into the liquid until it reaches a doughy texture and even consistency. To finish, knead the dough with your hands until it’s smooth.

  • Separate the dough into 16 separate balls and then roll them all out flat on a
    clean and lightly floured surface.

  • Add an even portion of the cheese and pepperoni to the middle of each piece.

  • Use your fingers to pinch the ball shut in the shape of a ball.

  • Place all of the pizza bites with the seam faced downwards into a deep baking dish.

  • Use a sauce brush to apply a thin coating of cannabis-infused olive oil followed by a dusting with the remaining spices and parmesan cheese.

  • Bake the pizza bites in the oven for 20 minutes, or until they’re all golden brown on the outside.

  • Serve these pizza bites while piping hot for the best flavor along with pizza sauce or another dip of choice.
