Mini Bagel Bites – Homemade

In Uncategorized on February 20, 2012 at 9:07 pm
Found this great recipe for homemade mini deep dish pizzas. I thought, this is definitely a better alternative to store bought bagel bites and boy was I right. Taylor has the day off so I thought I’d try them for lunch. He said the sauce is better than most pizza sauces he has tasted, score! My favorite marinara sauce is Newman’s Own – Organic. So I used that as the base.
What you will need: 
3-4 whole wheat tortillas (or whatever you have)
1 can pizza sauce – Like I said, I used the Newman’s Own Marinara, and I didn’t use even close to 1 can. But I’m not a huge sauce person either. 
3/4 cup shredded mozz. cheese
Parmesan cheese (the original recipe says 1/4 cup, but I didn’t measure.)
Regular or turkey pepperonis (minis would be best) Or just cut a whole into 4 pieces. 
1 tsp. italian seasonings (or basil, oregano, etc…)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Pinch or sweetener, I used organic sugar
Pinch of pepper
Of course you could add ham, veggies, anything you would normally eat on a pizza. šŸ™‚
Use a cookie cutter to cut 12 circles from the tortillas.
Line a muffin tin with each tortilla. You have to push them down in there, some will pop out. This was the most frustrating part.

Pour pizza sauce in to mixing bowl.

Add parmesan.

And spices (including sugar)

Spoon sauce mix in to each tortilla.

Top with mozzarella. 

Then pepperonis.

Bake at 425 for about 12 minutes. Edges should be crispy and cheese melted.

Serving Size: 1 bagel, 66 calories.
