How to Make Pizza Bites
1. Let’s Roll
Start by preparing the canvas for your Pizza Paradise Bites. Take your Original Hawaiian Sweet Rolls and, with a long serrated knife, slice them horizontally, creating a sturdy base for the flavorful toppings. Place the bottom rolls on a baking dish and spoon a generous amount of pizza sauce onto the bottom half of the rolls. This ensures each bite is infused with a rich tomatoey goodness, balancing the flavors to create a perfect harmony.
2. Say Cheese
Sprinkle a generous layer of mozzarella cheese over the sauced rolls. Mozzarella's unmatched melting properties and mild taste create a satisfying texture that ties the ingredients together.
3. Add Proteins
Artfully arrange pepperoni slices over the cheesy rolls. Then, sprinkle crumbled sausage over the pepperoni, adding a meaty richness to each bite. Adjust the amount of sausage based on your preference.
4. More Mozzarella Magic
Sprinkle another layer of mozzarella cheese over the crumbled sausage. Place the top half of the sweet rolls on the second layer of mozzarella, completing the bites.
5. Add the Finishing Touches
Combine melted butter, parmesan cheese, garlic salt, and Italian seasoning in a small bowl. Brush this mixture on top of the sweet rolls for increased irresistibility.
6. Bake and Enjoy!
Cover with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees. The foil ensures a gradual baking process, allowing the cheese to melt evenly.
Allow Pizza Bites to cool slightly before indulging. Once cooled, dive into the bite-sized bliss that awaits.
With these steps, you've crafted a taste of pizza paradise in every flavorful bite. Whether you're serving them at a party, enjoying a cozy night in, or satisfying a craving, Pizza Bites are a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. So, gather your
