Looking for a super cheap appetizer recipe for your next get-together? These mini pizza bites are extremely cheap – I’m talking less than $1 for a dozen – not to mention delicious.
These are essentially tiny equivalents of my muffin tin pizzas. I wanted to see if these could be made in a mini-muffin pan. As you can probably figure out, they could.
Play around with different sauce/topping combinations. I used salsa and Mexican-blend cheese, but here are some more creative ideas:
- Mango chutney, chicken, and green onion
- Sweet chili sauce, chicken sausage, and Parmesan cheese
- Barbecue sauce, bacon, and cheddar cheese

Mini Pizza Bites Recipe
Yield: 12 mini pizza bites
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Shopping tips: I bought a bag of pizza dough at Trader Joe's for $1.29. I used 1/3 of a bag for a dozen pizza bites. Feel free to make your own pizza dough from scratch, or ask a local pizzeria if you can buy a pound of dough.
Pizza dough (see notes above)
1/2 teaspoon sauce per pizza (I used tomato salsa)
1 teaspoon desired toppings per pizza
1 tablespoon cheese per pizza (I used shredded Mexican blend)
Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a mini muffin pan lightly with olive oil.
Divide pizza dough into 12 small balls, about the size of a quarter (or a chocolate truffle). On a clean and floured countertop, roll out dough with a rolling pin until it's large enough to fill the muffin tin - approximately 3 to 4 inches in diameter. Press dough into muffin tins. Repeat with remaining dough.
Layer sauce, toppings, and cheese in each muffin tin. Bake for approximately 12 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm.
