Pepperoni Pizza Poppers


When I first came across this recipe, I knew it was going to be a keeper.  They are so quick and easy to make and totally a hit with the kids!  I wondered if the canned biscuits flavor would bother me (not a big fan them).  But between the butter, seasonings, cheese and pepperoni the canned biscuit taste was not an issue.  They totally get an adult thumbs up too.  They are a perfect appetizer, after school snack or fun way to mix up family pizza night.  You'll want to have some marinara sauce on hand to dip them in.  Here is my favorite recipe for homemade marinara sauce or you can go the store bought route.

Open a can of dough and flatten one biscuit with your hand.  Place a slice of pepperoni, square of cheese and another slice of pepperoni on the dough.


Fold the dough up around the cheese and pepperoni.


Press dough tightly around pepperoni.  Place on greased cookie sheet, seam side down.  Repeat until all biscuits are used.  Brush with garlic butter and bake.


Serve warm with marinara sauce for dipping.


Ingredients
3 cans Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits (10 biscuits per can)
pepperoni slices
Block of cheese
4 TBS butter, melted
1 tsp garlic salt
2 tsp dried parsley
2 TBS dried or 1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
Marinara sauce, for dipping

Directions
Preheat oven to 425.  Cut the block of cheese into 30 thick squares.  Open a can of dough and flatten one biscuit with your hand.  Place a slice of pepperoni, square of cheese and another slice of pepperoni on the dough.  Fold the dough up around the cheese and pepperoni.  Press dough tightly around pepperoni.  Place on greased cookie sheet, seam side down.  Repeat until all biscuits are used.  In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, garlic salt and parsley.  Brush with garlic butter on rolls then sprinkle with parmesan cheese.  Bake at 425 for 18-20 minutes.Serve warm with marinara sauce for dipping.

I know some kids who would absolutely go crazy for these! Adding it to the list of foods to make when I can get my hands on refrigerated biscuits!
