I love pizza.. you love pizza… we all love pizza.. Am I right?? Creating a point friendly pizza snack was what I was aiming for when I came up with these delicious bites of pizza heaven.. They are easy to make and these pizza twists are the perfect snacking food or serve them up at your next party, they will be gone in minutes I promise (so you might want to hide a few for you!)

  • Pinch of italian seasoning
Instructions

  3. Spread out 1 Tbsp of pizza sauce on top of two of your dough pieces.
  4. Top each of the two pieces with 10 pepperoni slices and 2 Tbsp shredded cheese.
  5. Cover with your other two dough pieces. Using a pizza cutter, cut each into 7 pieces, giving you a total of 14 pieces.
  6. Take each piece one at a time and transport to your baking sheet, just before you lay them down give them a twist using your fingers.
  7. Sprinkle parmesan cheese and italian seasoning on top and bake in oven for approx 12 minutes. Serve warm.
