Mini Bagel Pizzas

Bagel bites. . . Bring you memories from your childhood? Sure does for me! I remember my little sister and I being so excited when we spied the huge box of them from Costco heading for our freezer. The one's I've made here are about 2-3 times the size of regular bagel bites (my store didn't have teeny-tiny bagels, sadly), but they are still darn tasty! And VERY easy to put together!

Mini Bagel Pizzas

Mini Bagels, I used 10
1 Cup of your favorite Pizza Sauce, store bought or homemade
Mozzarella Cheese
1 tsp Italian Seasoning (optional)
1 tsp Dried Oregano (optional)

I nabbed these super adorable little "mozzarella pearls" at my Smith's store on clearance for only $2.49. However, you can use shredded, cubed, or chop up your own into little pieces. Because I was going for convenience, I used a basic store-bought sauce and jazzed it up with the Italian seasoning and oregano.
Slice all your bagels in half and lay them out on a cookie sheet. Try to find one big enough to hold all of the bagels, so you don't need to also use a dinner plate. :)
Spread about 1-1 1/2 teaspoons of sauce onto each bagel half.
Now go ahead and add some cheese and chopped pepperoni onto each bagel. You can also use whatever toppings you like, of course.
Stick them straight into the freezer and let them sit for 2-3 hours, until all the toppings are frozen solid. You don't want any falling off later! And yes, my freezer is so tiny I had to use the ice-cube tray area.
After they are good and frozen, you can transfer them to some kind of freezer-safe tupperware or gallon-size freezer bag. I've learned to label the bag/container with the cooking instructions, so you might want to, also.
When you want to cook these little suckers, simply pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees and then bake on a cookie sheet for 20-25 minutes. Of, if you're in a pinch and pregnant and starving and you can't wait, zap em in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. Enjoy!!!
