Do you dream of a pizza popper that oozes with melted cheese, sauce, and meat once you bite into it? Here is the recipe which you can try today.


1 ball pizza dough (about 1 pound), store-bought or homemade

1 cup tomato sauce, store-bought or homemade

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 pound cooked sausage, crumbled (optional)

Flour for dusting

Olive oil



1Preheat the oven to 500°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2Gather the ingredients: Gather the pizza dough and bring it to room temperature, as well as the sauce, mozzarella cheese, and cooked, crumbled sausage (if using).

3In a medium bowl, combine the pizza sauce, cheese, and sausage. Stir until completely mixed together.

4Roll out the dough: Cut the dough into workable pieces, about the size of a tennis ball. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough into a long rectangle, until it's about 4 inches wide and about 1/4-inch thick.

5Down one side of the dough, drop small spoonfuls (roughly 1 teaspoon) of filling ingredients in little mounds. Leave about 1 inch between each mound of filling.

6Fold dough over the top of the toppings and press between the mounds of filling with your fingers.

7Using a bench scraper or sharp knife, cut each pizza bite apart from the next.

8Pinch the freshly cut ends together. They'll be sticky and should hold together nicely, making a neat edge. The amount of execution needed for this step will usually depend on your dough and its willingness to play nice.

9Transfer the pizza bites to a baking sheet, spaced about 1-inch apart. Lightly brush the top of each pizza bite with olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt.

10Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the tops are golden-brown. Remove from the oven, cool slightly, and serve.

11To enjoy the meal fullest, you can also have pineapple lemonade punch with it
