Leelee first brought up the idea of the mozarella bites in the cake pop maker. I asked her several times if she wanted to try, but she's been overwhelmed with homework this week.
The first batch cooked a smidge too long. They were crunchy, which is great if you like crunchy bread.
After making the dough, tear off about 1/2 tablespoon sized piece and squish it flat like a pizza. Add in a good pinch of cheese. Then seal up the edges and roll around into a ball shape. I used shredded cheese because it's cheap and we go through large volumes of shredded mozzarella. This recipe would probably be easier using chunks of string cheese.
Place them in the pre-heated cake pop maker for about 5 minutes. Longer if you want crunchy.
1 pkg Fleischman's pizza yeast prepared according to package directions
1/2 C shredded Mozzarella
1/4 C melted butter
Take 1/2 T portions of pizza dough and flatten to 1/8 inch thickness. Place about 1 t mozzarella cheese in the center of the dough. Fold and seal edges. Roll in your hands to shape like a ball, making sure there are no gaps where the cheese can ooze out.
Roll balls in melted butter, covering evenly.
Place in cake pop maker and bake for approximately 5 minutes.
Serve with warm with marinara sauce.
