Cheesy Pizza Rolls

Cheesy and delicious Pizza Rolls (pizza bites) filled with mozzarella and topped with butter, cheese and pepperonis.

I can honestly say that I never get of sick of finding and trying new recipes. It’s so much fun, and I love adding these new found recipes to the monthly menu plan because it guarantees the kids won’t get bored with the same ol’ dinner ideas. Today’s recipe happens to be one that I know my kids will love for dinner but it also would be a great appetizer or side dish. They’re Cheesy Pizza Rolls (or Pizza Bites), and they taste just like delicious pizza but don’t require all the work of making homemade pizza dough.

These Garlic Bites are actually made from refrigerated buttermilk biscuits. They’re stuffed with fresh mozzarella tossed in butter and baked to perfection! They’re also topped with cheese and pepperonis before baking and are so addicting when served warm with marinara sauce. As anyone could imagine, they were a hit with the family and will definitely be made again!

We topped ours off with pepperoni, but any of your favorite toppings can be added. 😉

This recipe is seriously so simple and so delicious! I know there are so many different ways to serve pizza-type dishes but it’s nice to change it up from the standard triangle slice you normally get. And what kid doesn’t love the flavor of pizza?? I’m thinking these would be great for the kids at one of our next appetizer parties, which we like to have. 🙂

    These look wonderful. Dumb question but where do you find cherry tomato sized mozzarella balls?
