Sometimes, kids (and adults!) just need some good old comfort food. These mini pizza bites taste just like a pizza, rolled up in one tiny bite-size morsel. The dairy-free version tastes just as cheesy, thanks to the nutritional yeast.
2In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cassava flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, salt, red pepper flakes, and nutritional yeast.
3Stir in the egg and milk until fully combined. Mix in the pepperoni and mozzarella (if using). Let the batter rest while you grease a 24-cup mini muffin pan. My preferred method is using a pastry brush to coat the cups with melted coconut oil.
4Divide the batter evenly between all 24 mini muffin cups. They should be slightly over 3/4 full.
5Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown and they have puffed up.
6Remove from oven and gently remove them from the muffin pan. Serve hot with the warmed tomato sauce.
7Extra pizza bites can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks and in the freezer for up to 6 months.
