- If using fresh dough, let sit out at room temperature for 30 minutes in a covered and lightly oiled bowl.
- On a floured surface, take one half of the dough and roll it out into a rectangle, about ⅛ of an inch (3 mm) thick. Repeat with other half of dough and set aside.
- Lightly oil your ice cube tray if it’s hard plastic.
- Transfer the dough to cover the tray and press the dough down into every hole, holding for about 5 seconds to ensure the dough stretches properly. If it tears, you can use excess dough to patch up any holes.
- Assemble each bite with approximately one teaspoon of sauce, such as marinara or pesto, one teaspoon of cheese, and desired toppings.
- Cover the prepared bites with remaining dough and roll over the ice cube tray with rolling pin to seal.
- Trim any excess dough and save for more pizza bites.
- Freeze the ice cube tray for about an hour, until the dough has set.
- Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180ºC).
- Flip the tray onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet to release the bites. If necessary, use a paring knife to gently loosen.
- Cut and separate the bites.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the dough is golden brown and serve warm.
