      Quinoa Pizza Bites In my opinion, these are, hands down, the best things I think I've ever cooked.  Each bite is packed with pizza flavor and I can't get enough of them!  I brought Daniel a few to try and he polished them off in a matter of seconds, immediately asking for "30 more, please." We love onion (I use frozen chopped onion most of the time, because my eyes so much when I cut fresh onions that I can't see and cut myself almost every time!), so feel free to cut down the 1 cup if your family isn't as fond of them! The fresh basil adds a big flavor punch, but the combination of the basil, oregano, paprika, garlic, and onion seemed to meld perfectly to bring all of the pizza flavor in a tiny little bite. You could definitely sub turkey pepperoni to make them a tad healthier, if you were so inclined, but I used the regular pepperoni and these babies are still only 35 calories per bite.  Not bad at all! These are kid-friendly, adult-friendly, and perfect party food (if we were football people, I'd make these for the Superbowl)! We may need to start making these on a weekly basis. Quinoa Pizza Bites Makes ~40 bites 2 cups cooked quinoa 2 large eggs 1 cup chopped onion 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 2 tsp minced garlic 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped 1 cup chopped pepperoni slices (~1/2 of a 7 oz bag)  1/2 tsp seasoning salt 1 tsp paprika 1 tsp dried crushed oregano pizza sauce for dipping 1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 2.  Mix together all ingredients, except pizza sauce, in a medium mixing bowl. 3.  Distribute mixture into a greased mini muffin tin, filling each cup to the top (1 heaping Tbs each), and press down gently to compact.  4.  Bake for 15-20 minutes.

WOW..I am going to make these this week-end. My kids are always "drooling" over the pizza bites in the freezer section. I think they will LOVE them! Thank you for sharing!
