Easy Polenta Pizza Bites

I love pizza bites! Okay, fine, I love anything pizza. These pizza bites are made with polenta, pizza sauce, vegan mozzarella cheese. All good things! You could also add vegan pepperoni or any other toppings you’d like. The polenta is a great option for pizza bites because it’s gluten free (check the package just to make sure), sold in pre-cooked logs, and heats up super fast! Super fast pizza prep is always a wonderful thing.
