Hi all! Happy Wednesday!
Just wanted to pop in real quick and share last week’s Pizza Night recipe!
If you’ve been following for a while then you know about our ritualistic date night every Friday night where we stay home and make a new version of pizza. It’s probably our favorite night of the week, and we’ve stuck to it for almost an entire year! It may not be the healthiest tradition, but a little fun never hurt anyone, and we both enjoy each other’s company more than anything. Since we weren’t home last Friday night, we compromised and held our weekly pizza night on Thursday night instead.
I sent my husband to the store to get pizza supplies, and before he returned home he texted me this glorious flashback.
That’s right, Bagel Bites!! Who remembers these tasty frozen treats?! Definitely a staple in our freezer growing up. Right next to the Totinos Pizza Rolls.
We made our own version, and they were even better than the originals, though it was a close call – it’s hard to beat the 90’s taste of frozen fake cheese and processed pepperoni cubes 😉
Homemade “Bagel Bites”
Here is what you’ll need:
Preheat oven to 400*.
-Bag of mini bagels, sliced in half, preferably whole wheat, toasted
-Cheese of choice (we used fresh mozzarella as well as Go Veggie mozzarella)
-Diced green bell pepper
-Sliced pepperoni (if you buy it at the deli counter, it’s super cheap and much better!)
1. Toast bagels in oven at 400* for 5-8 minutes before adding tomato paste.
4. Layer on all your toppings, then bake at 400* until the cheese is melted and golden brown around the edges. Easy peasy!
I know, just like the good ‘ole days.
What is your favorite “flashback” food? Do you remember bagel bites? What’s the last pizza you made?
