It's so easy to put together and it makes three, yup I said three, pie plates full of deliciousness. I skipped the recipe for the pizza dough this time around and bought two 2 pound bags of fresh dough. I used about 3 pounds of dough. Next time I'm going to try this with home made dough.
This is how I made them:
I cut off walnut sized pieces of the dough, then just rounded them off in my hand.
Then I flattened the dough a bit...
and stuffed in about 2 pieces of cut up pepperoni and a good chunk of mozzarella.
Then I pinched the dough back over the filling. So easy!
I laid them seam side down in a greased pie dish.
Then brushed them with the olive oil and herb mixture and then sprinkled them with Parmesan cheese.
I really liked that it made 3 plates full.
(1 will never be enough!).
Some pans had 16 in them, some 18....I just kinda filled them and didn't count until the end. Hey - it worked out just fine.
I baked them for 20 minutes. Let them rest 5 minutes then called the boys in to snack.
I heated up 2 bowls of marina sauce for dipping and let the grazing begin.
These were wonderful. I'm glad I increased the amount of pepperoni, cause the only complaint I heard was "Mom next time put more pepperoni".
These would be great make ahead appetizers to bring to a party.
Conclusion in my house:
"Make these again Mom"
I'm just waiting for them to ask me to cook the third pan.
Thanks Katie! This one's a keeper!
