Pizza Mac and Cheese Bites are a combination of the two all-time favorite foods of kids (and adults) everywhere! In these mac and cheese bites they’re a marriage made in (flavor) heaven!

It’s a tasty mashup between pizza and macaroni and cheese and gets extra bonus points for being easy. Baked into bite-sized portions in a mini muffin tin, this is a perfect snack or lunch.

How to Make Mac and Cheese Bites

Prepping and cooking couldn’t be easier, starting with a package of creamy Bob Evans Mac and Cheese. Then we give it a homemade flair by dressing it up with tasty pizza seasonings and toppings like pepperoni, parmesan and mozzarella before baking. What kid can refuse?

Busy moms are certain to love how simple it is to make this recipe from start to finish. It’s ready to serve in a half hour, and most of that is baking time.

Ingredients for pizza mac and cheese bites in a clear Bowl

  1. Mix the Bob Evans Mac and Cheese with the other ingredients.
  2. Divide into mini muffin tins.
  3. Bake until heated through and golden brown on top.

Serve with pizza sauce or other favorite toppings.

Don’t have a mini muffin tin? Not to worry. Bake in a casserole dish for cutting into bite size pieces. If you go this route, add 5-10 minutes and sure to check the center for firmness before removing. A knife inserted in the center should come out clean.

Can You Make it In Advance?

I love how mac and cheese bites hold their shape for making ahead, either for bringing to parties and potlucks or freezing for later.

  • To freeze, first cool and place on a cookie sheet until frozen solid. Then transfer to a zip top freezer bag for the ultimate in quick after school snacks.
  • To reheat, just pop one or two in the microwave to take the edge off the kiddos’ appetites.

Leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to four days, or in the freezer for up to four months.

  1. When I make Mac and cheese, I use cornstarch instead of flour. One cup milk, two tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons cornstarch, as much cheese as you like, a teaspoon of dry mustard powder and 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika makes a sauce that is never floury!
