Pepperoni Pizza Bites
Guys...these are nuts.
They are soft, bursting with flavor and when you take your first bite your teeth sink into melted mozzarella, and mini pepperoni; dipped in my pizza sauce, you've just landed on the moon!
This isn't a joke. This needs to be made by every mama everywhere for their children because you will be a superstar!
I found these on Pinterest and made them my own by using my famous pizza sauce, yes...totally famous sauce, and my famous, yes...to every child I know and their friends, pizza crust! This is freaking amazing!!
You are welcome. Or sorry (depends on how you look at it, for they are addicting).
|Here is my holding a bit of the dough, and stuffing it with the pepperoni and cheese|
|Here they are rolled up after being stuffed awaiting their neighbors and fit snugly in a cake pan|
|Right out of the oven. Browned, soft, herbaceous, and ready to be dunked and to burst right into your mouth |
|Here they are all happy together with the delightful pizza sauce for dunking|
|Here is my Bella, opening one for all to witness...|
Here's the low-down on how you can create these for your family:
Jenny's pizza sauce
Jenny's pizza crust
mini pepperoni, either diced or in small round circles
Grease a round cake pan
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees
After your dough has gone through the 2 rises, pinch off a little of the dough, flatten out in the palm of your hand, put a little mozzarella and 3-4 pieces pepperoni and close it up, pinching the ends and rolling into a ball. Place in your pan, one by one until all balls are snug and ready for the oven. I let them rest for 20 minutes, put them into the oven and in 20-25 minutes, they were ready!
Serve them onto a cute platter with a ramekin of your sauce for dunking.
