Meat Ragu Pizza Bites


Warning, these Meat Ragu Pizza Bites are seriously delicious! Using pre-made pizza dough, I filled them with mozzarella and the meat Ragu which I'd made earlier for the Pappardelle. They look like small Meat Ragu dumplings, don't they? :-) Simply delightful!

Meat Ragu Pizza Bites

Ingredients

1 Packet (about 300 to 310g) Fresh Pizza Dough (available at Whole Foods Market)

¾ Cup Meat Ragu
80 g Mozzarella Cheese, diced
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Sea Salt
Coarsely Ground Black Pepper

Dried Italian Herbs
Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese, freshly grated

Baking dish-lightly oiled


Method



Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 400˚F/200˚C.

Press down the dough on a lightly flour surface. Then divide the dough into 8 equals balls. Roll each out into a circle, (about 4 inches in diameter) Put 1 tablespoonful of prepared meat ragu in the center of each circle, top with diced mozzarella, and wrap dough around filling. Place the dough on the baking dish, seam side down, brush the top with olive oil, and sprinkle some sea salt, black pepper, herbs and cheese. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until light golden brown in color.
