In a large mixing bowl, preferably a stand mixer, stir yeast and honey {or sugar, which ever you picked} into warm water. Let sit for a minute. Pour in salt, oil and half the flour and mix.

Step 2:

Once that flour is mixed in, start adding the other half of flour in bit by bit until you get the pizza dough to the consistency you want. If it sticks to your hands, add more flour.

Step 3:

Once you get to this point, turn the mixer on high to knead for 6 minutes.
No stopping before 6 minutes!!!!!! Once 6 minutes is up, turn mixer off and take dough out.
The dough should be smooth and easy to work with.

Step 4:

Divide the pizza dough into 20-24 roughly equal sized pieces... (mine i made bigger, thus, you  end up with 12 pizza bites.) (Make them what ever size you want!!)

Take one of the dough pieces,squish the middle and put 2-3 slices of pepperoni and then a cube of cheese, or approximately 2 tablespoons of shredded cheese, like i did.  Pull the edges of the dough around the fillings and pinch closed.  Place seam-side down in the baking dish.  Repeat with the remaining dough pieces.
Spread the topping mixture (butter and garlic) over pizza bites.
