These homemade pizza bagel bites are perfect for a fun lunch, a quick after school snack, or a hand held game day appetizer! They require just 4 simple ingredients and can be customized to suit your family's taste!


  • 8 plain mini bagels
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 8 oz. shredded mozzarella
  • 24 pepperonis, cut in half


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Lay bagels cut side up on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  3. Add a spoonful of pizza sauce to each bagel, spreading it in an even layer.
  4. Divide the cheese evenly between the bagels.
  5. Add pepperoni as well.
  6. Bake for about 12 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  7. Garnish with fresh parsley and grated Parmesan if desired and enjoy!



  • To add a little something extra to these bagel bites, spread a thin layer of garlic butter on the bagels and bake them in the oven for a couple minutes before adding the pizza sauce, cheese, and other toppings. This will add a delicious layer of flavor!
  • Let your family make their own bagel bites! This is one of our family's favorites because we can each top our bagel pizzas with whatever we want. My partner likes pepperoni and jalapeno. I usually do pepperoni and green olive. And our daughter loves classic pepperoni with extra sauce on the side for dipping!
  • Just don't go too crazy with the toppings. If you add too many toppings the pizza won't cook through all the way. Stick to just a layer of cheese and a couple other toppings for the best result.
