For a delicious and creative way to serve pizza appetizers, give this recipe a try. For the dough, we’re using frozen dinner rolls, and the cast iron muffin pan gives the crust great texture. You can use your favorite sauce, cheeses and toppings and change it up as much as you like.

Pizza Bites Recipe


  • 3 frozen unbaked dinner rolls
  • 4 oz mushrooms, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 oz cooked Italian sausage, diced
  • 3 oz Italian cheeses (mozzarella, asiago, parmesan, etc.), grated
  • 8 oz pizza sauce
  • Cattleman’s Grill Italiano Seasoning
  • olive oil


Grease a six-cup muffin pan. Depending on the size of the muffin cups in the pan, you’ll want to place 1/2-1 frozen dinner roll in each cup. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and place somewhere warm. Allow the dough to rise until doubled in size.

Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, season with Cattleman’s Grill Italiano Seasoning and cook until tender. Add the minced garlic and cook another two minutes.

Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 to 400°F. When the dough has doubled in size, punch the dough down and place a spoonful of sauce in each cup. Top with the mushrooms, sausage and cheese.

Bake for about 30 minutes, until the cheese and dough are browned. You can slide a small knife in the cup to check if the dough is cooked/browned. Carefully remove the pizza bites from the muffin pan shortly after removing from the cooker, to prevent sticking.
