  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp oregano


  • ½ cup sauce (such as Rao’s)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped
  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 3 oz pepperoni, chopped
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese, for sprinkling


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the chicken crust mixture by stirring together shredded chicken, grated Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, and salt in a bowl.
  3. Whisk the eggs lightly, then add them to the chicken mixture. Mix well to combine.
  4. Form approximately 1.5” balls of chicken crust and flatten them out on the baking sheet to create the “bagel bite” shape, each about ¼” thick.
  5. Sprinkle oregano and red pepper flakes on each crust for added flavor.
  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until firm and golden on the edges.
  7. Let the crusts rest for 10 minutes to “seal.”
  8. Add sauce and toppings evenly over the crusts. Return to the oven for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. For a golden finish, place the bagel bites under the broiler for a couple of minutes to brown the cheese to perfection.
