10 Minute Pizza Pretzel Bites

Pizza Pretzels may have been invented by Little Caesars, but I wanted to make something that’s bite size and fun.
These pizza pretzel appetizers only require 4 ingredients: pretzels, pepperoni slices, pizza sauce and grated cheese.
Making them couldn’t be easier. Start by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange pretzels on top:
Then you add one slice of pepperoni on top of each pretzel. Use standard size pepperoni for regular pretzels and large pepperoni for large pretzels. If you want a vegetarian version, simply substitute vegetarian pepperoni like this.
Next comes the pizza sauce. You can use marinara sauce in a pinch as well.
And last but not least on goes the shredded cheese. You can use mozzarella, cheddar, jack, parmesan or your favorite.
And that’s it! Bake in the oven for 10 minutes and you’ll be good to go. Watch this video tutorial to see how to make them:
This recipe is easy to double if you’re feeding a crowd.
