Learn how to make this easy recipe for mini pizza bagels! I will share instructions for homemade bagel dough too, making these bagel bites WAY better than store-bought. Also, try my mini pizza bagel bites and for dessert, you can serve black bean brownies.


  • 6 bagels, halved (recipe below in the notes)
  • 46 oz pizza sauce (my homemade pizza sauce)
  • ½¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 9 large pepperoni, cut into eighths
  • Other Pizza Toppings (as desired)

Bagel Recipe Ingredients


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Slice the bagels (instructions for homemade bagels below) in half, place them on a baking sheet, and top each half with about 1-2 tablespoons of pizza sauce.
  2. Add the cheese and pepperoni (or other toppings, as desired) and bake in the oven for 5-8 minutes until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly. If needed, turn the oven to broil for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Serve warm.


Homemade Bagel Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375. In a large bowl, combine the yogurt and the self-rising flour. Using your hands, mix the ingredients until you have a mostly smooth dough.
  2. Using a dough scraper or knife, divide the dough into four equal pieces. Lightly flour your working surface.
  3. Working with one piece of dough at a time, roll the dough on the mat in a back-and-forth motion until you have a rope about 9” in length.
  4. Place the dough onto a baking sheet and shape it into a bagel, wrapping each end over the other and tucking the ends underneath the bagel.
  5. Brush the top of the bagel with the egg (if desired).
  6. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes.
