Mini Pizza Bites Recipe
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.
These two-bite pizzas are the ideal appetizer for your next get-together. If you’re hosting a dinner party and want to serve a super cheap appetizer, give these a try. The only trick – if there is one at all – is rolling out the pizza dough into a small enough round. As noted below in the recipe instructions, use a quarter-size amount of dough per pizza.
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

- Pizza dough (see notes above)
- 1/2 teaspoon pizza sauce per pizza
- 1 teaspoon desired toppings per pizza
- 1 tablespoon cheese per pizza
- 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.
