These were so so so easy to whip up. I’ve made them since and know they will become a go to weekend snack and a must have once football season starts back up. They are also slightly addictive since it’s easier to grab a few at a time than say, another slice of pizza! No more buying those freezer appetizers, once you pull apart that warm, fluffy bread you’ll never be the same. My favorite part? Hearing them sizzle sweet nothings to you as you take the dish out of the oven! I’ve suggested serving them with marinara sauce since I have a recipe, but you could also serve them with a melted butter and garlic sauce, like Papa John’s and that would be really good as well!
1/2 batch pizza dough *recipe below* or enough to make 1 pizza
Pre-heat oven to 400 F. Lightly grease a 9-inch pie plate.
Divide the dough into 24 equal sized pieces. Mine end up weighing just over 1 oz. each. Place one mozzarella cube and one to two pieces of pepperoni slices on each piece of dough.
Push the cheese and pepperoni down into the dough and pull the sides of the dough up around it. Pinch to seal and place the dough, seam side down in the pie plate. Repeat with the remaining dough and place the pieces of dough in a circular pattern around the pie plate.
Lightly brush olive oil over the top of the dough balls. Lightly sprinkle the Italian seasoning or pizza spices and Parmesan cheese over the top of the dough balls.
Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
