When I saw a picture for Quinoa Pizza Bites on Pinterest I was so exicited! The recipe I saw was for Peperoni Pizza Bites..click HERE to see that one, plus her pictures are wayy better and look even yummier than mine.

Below is how I recreated it for my family:

  • pizza sauce for dipping
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.  Combine all ingredients, except pizza sauce, in a medium mixing bowl.
3.  Distribute mixture into a greased mini muffin tin, filling each cup to the top (1 heaping Tbs each), and pressing down gently to compact. 
4.  Bake for 18 to 20 minutes.
