4 Cheese Pepperoni Pizza Bites are the perfect after school or family night treat.  Kids are always hungry and as busy Moms we all get tired of hearing, “Mom, I am hungry!  What’s to eat?”
4 Cheese Pepperoni Pizza Bites - The perfect snack for your family

Hi there, my name is Cynthia and I write a blog called Feeding Big.  I write about easy, quick and frugal recipes.  Of course, I also love to share other things like travel, sewing and living a frugal life.  I want to thank Donella for giving me an opportunity to write for her.

My daughter was pretty hung up on those little frozen pizza bites.  I kept bags of them in the freezer and when she and her friends got hungry I knew they would tide them over for an hour or so.  Although my daughter and her friends loved the frozen bites, I was not so sure I was happy with what went in them.  I do my best to stay away from ingredients that I can’t pronounce.

Imagine how happy I was when I found the recipe for homemade pepperoni bites.  I knew my daughter and her friends would love them.  I made a couple changes to the original recipe (don’t ask me where I got it, I really can’t remember!).  The original recipe called for mozzarella and I while I am fan of mozzarella, I prefer a 4 cheese blend.  One of the great things about this recipe is that you can make a few changes to please your family.

We are a family who loves to play games and a snack like this is perfect for game night.  I always make sure I have small bowls of pizza sauce or other dips for the bites.  My daughter loves to dip hers in ranch dressing.  So far, I have never had a friend try these that hasn’t loved them.  My Mom even takes them to her gardening club meetings and they all love them.

I hope you do too!
