Kids Cook: Pizza Bites

Would you like a glimpse into my week??  Good!

{Monday, 5 AM} "This is going to be a great week!  I had a great weekend, I've got a good attitude...gonna get lots done."

{Monday, 11 AM}  "This is ridiculous!!  I cannot sit in this room any longer.  How can we talk about the same thing over and over?  Are we seriously rehashing this?  Its only 11!?!?!?!?!  This week can not end soon enough."

{Tuesday + Wednesday} Repeat

{Thursday}  "Thank goodness it is Thursday.  I can do this...last day...then I'm home for 3 days with the kiddos.  Oh wait...I'm going to need to breathe tonight.  Better figure out something to do to keep the kids busy.  I can't deal with fussing and whining tonight."

This is where the kids helping me in the kitchen comes in.  They love to cook with me.  And I'm trying to be better about allowing them in.  It gives us something to do together {yep, I try to be a good parent like that}, and when they are done helping they are more than happy to run off and play together while I finish up and clean up.

You can be as homemade or as store bought as you want with this one.  This time I took a little extra help from the store and used canned biscuits.  But you could certainly use your favorite pizza dough recipe as well.

Cheese and bread...doesn't get better than that.  Well...chocolate and coffee rank higher for me...but...you get my drift.   

Pizza Bites
{makes 30 bites}

3 cans biscuits {10 count}
sliced pepperoni
cheese, cut into 1 inch cubes 
     {I used Monterrey Jack and Mozzarella, but use what you have on hand}
olive oil
italian seasoning
pizza sauce, for dipping

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Take one biscuit and top with one slice of pepperoni, a cube of cheese and another slice of pepperoni.  Pull edges around filling and pinch to seal.  Place seam side down in a 9x13 pan.  Repeat with remaining biscuits.
Brush tops of pizza bites lightly with olive oil and sprinkle tops with italian seasoning and parmesan.  Bake for 20-25 minutes until biscuits are lightly browned.  Serve with warmed pizza sauce and enjoy!
