Homemade Pizza Bagel Bites

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.

Bagel Pizza Bites - 01 Ingredients


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.

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.
