Cheese Pizza Pops are very cheesy and addictive. Perfect for after-school snack for the kids.
So for the final pizza recipe for this week’s Bake-athon, I had quite a few recipes that I wanted to try. But with the husband travelling, I didn’t want to make a whole pie and have leftovers. So when I saw this recipe on the Kitchn site, I knew I had to make these Cheese Pizza Pops for the kids.Cheese Pizza Pops are nothing but bite sized pizza or may be mini size cheese calzones. Frozen pizza bites are quite popular here in the US. There is absolutely no need to buy these from the store because they are very easy to make at home. All you need is pizza dough, pizza sauce and grated cheese.Store bought pizza dough would work in a pinch. I’ve included an easy to make pizza dough recipe that works great here. Double or triple the quantities to make these for a crowd. The original recipe had crumbled sausage in it. I wanted to add some veggies like broccoli or spinach — but both my kids have different tastes, so had to make something that both of them like. Feel free to add some veggies to the filling, but don’t over-do it.
I made these cheese pizza pops for my kids after-school snack. My son said that the house smelled like a pizza place. My daughter loved them so much that she said she could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Well, that is not happening — but I’m sure I will be making them quite often.
