Grownup Pizza Bites

I can’t believe its already a new week..my baby is 10 months old on Tuesday and Easter is on Sunday…where the heck have I been when time is flying right by?! Slow down world..I haven’t had a chance to catch my breath!

So you know when you were little, and you wanted frozen processed, fake, pizza bites…you know, the ones that we probably still feed our kids, because sometimes its just…easier. WELL these fabulous little cuties are for YOU! Grownup Pizza Bites! They are poiiiifect for any party appetizer, great for a game…(sadly football is still many moons away) or maybe just for dinner tonight…to demolish in five minutes…like we did.

I made four different flavor bites, but you could so easily just triple the toppings and make all the same kind, OR use one of the types and make one large pizza? I may have done that too! 😉 Anyway you do it, these pizza bites are classayyy, more grown up, and adorable for any appetizer spread! PLUS I just gave you four new flavors of pizza…you can’t.go.wrong! Enjoy!
