It’s a cold, nasty day here in Ohio. It snowed early this morning, but as the day went on the snow became a steady, cold rain. Our road is too small for the plows to bother with, leaving a thick layer of slippery mush for us to deal with if we wanted to drive anywhere.
My wife and I decided not to go to the grocery like we planned.
So, as dinner time rolled around, I decided to improvise a little with what we had on hand. I made homemade pizza bagels.
Quick thing: I have included affiliate links to Amazon below – it won’t affect your price to click them, but I do get a kickback. I promise that my links are only to be helpful and offer products that would be useful with the recipe.
As I looked in my fridge, my eye caught on a Pyrex bowl full of pizza sauce that I made a bit ago, right next to the homemade bagels that I made yesterday (get the recipe here!).
Visions of bagel bites danced in my head.
So, I found a bag of mozzarella and some pepperoni, and off we went.
Putting It Together
I’m going to just do a quick and dirty run-through of assembly.
Slice the bagel in half.
Spread on some sauce.
Sprinkle on some cheese.
Add your toppings.
From there, all you need to do is preheat the oven to 350 F and pop your pizza bagels for five minutes.
Bagel Bites, eat your heart out.
This of course works fine with store-bought bagels. But, if you find yourself stuck inside, make sure to try making the bagels yourself. They are way better than any bagged bread from Kroger.
