Supreme Pizza Bites

If you've already seen my previous post of pepperoni basil bites, this is the second batch I made. Which I turned into supreme pizza bites! These were more of a hit with the adults than the kids but it was better for us because we got more! Both versions were equally delicious and both were snatched up and eaten within 5 minutes! Enjoy!


8 oz pckg cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1/4 cup pizza or pasta sauce, the lowest carbs you can find. The one I used had 2 net carbs per 1/4 cup
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 fresh basil leaves, chopped or torn into small pieces
2 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated
32 slices of pepperoni, plus an additional 1/4 cup chopped pepperoni
2 slices of canadian bacon or ham, chopped
2 tbsp sliced black olives
2 tbsp chopped green bell pepper
2 tbsp chopped red onion
1 mini muffin tin, preferably a 24 capacity one


1. Preheat the oven at 350 F.
2. Place one pepperoni in the bottom of each mini muffin tin. Press down on them to make them stay.
3. In a large mixing bowl, mix the cream cheese and eggs until thoroughly combined. Add the pizza or pasta sauce, mozzarella, parmesan, basil, chopped pepperoni, ham, green peppers, olives and onions.
4. Fill each mini muffin space to the top with this mixture. Be careful not to overfill.
5. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until lighly golden brown and set.
6. Remove them from the pan by passing a small knife around the edges. They should pop right out with no problem but if you know your pan tends to stick then add pam before baking.
7. Place remaining pepperoni's in the bottom of the tins and add remaining mixture and bake as directed.

You have to do this in batches since the recipe yields 32 and the pan only holds 24.

Each pizza bite has 0.5 Net carbs

The carbs counts will vary slightly depending on what kind of pizza or pasta sauce you use.
If you haven't already seen it, I also posted a recipe for pepperoni basil pizza bites. So please check that post out as well! 


  1. Hiya! I am LOVING your recipes. :) have you tried freezing these at all? I'm looking for some great recipes to keep "on hand" for those nights - such as when my husband takes his totinos pizza bites out - I can have these, pull them out of the freezer and eat something like this instead of that processed high carb crap...can't wait to try these!

  2. Hi Annie!

    I haven't tried freezing these. When I made them they were devoured in 5 minutes! Maybe you could make half a batch instead? I'm not sure how the cheese would do if you froze them?

    If you do make these, be careful your husband might want to eat these and leave his Totino's! They are very good and addictive!

    Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. These are amazing! Thanks so much!
