Mini Pizza Bites

Serves 8


Besides being tasty appetizers, these bites are a great after-school snack for little ones.

13-by 9-inch (3 L) baking pan, lined with parchment paper

3 cups (750 mL) biscuit mix
2/3 (150 mL) cup hot water
1 cup (250 mL) shredded cheese such as Cheddar,
     Monterey Jack, or provolone
1/4 (50 mL) cup thinly shredded basil
4 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced (about 1 cup/250 mL)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C)

In a large bowl, blend biscuit mix and hot water. When dough comes together, place on a surface that has been dusted with biscuit mix. Knead for 3 minutes or until firm. Cover with a dry towel and let rest for 5 minutes.

Press dough into prepared baking pan. Top with shredded cheese, basil and tomatoes. Bake in center of preheated oven until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbling, 12 to 20 minutes. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes, then cut into 11.2-inch (4 cm) squares.

You can keep a batch of pizza bites in the freezer. After baking, let cool completely and place in freezer bags; freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw and warm in foil in 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) oven until hot, about 10 minutes.

You can replace the basil with an equal amount of dill.
