Pizza is one of my family’s very favorite meals. It’s one that everyone can enjoy without having to change it up to suit one or two of my pickiest eaters. We have pizza on a regular basis and so out of boredom I like to find new ways to eat the things we love most. I stumbled across a recipe online for a kind of pizza “ball” but of course it is impossible for me to just use someone else’s recipe without changing it up and making it my own. This one was fun to make with the kids. It was fast, simple and yummy. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do!
1.) Your favorite canned biscuits. *I personally prefer Pillsbury Buttermilk (10 pack). Regular is better than the Grands for this recipe. You’ll have to judge how many according to the amount of folks you are serving.
2.) Sliced Pepperoni
3.) Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
4.) Parmesan Cheese
5.) Italian Seasoning
6.) Garlic Powder *My favorite is actually Lowry’s coarse ground garlic salt with parsley
7.) Melted butter -or- a beaten egg (to brush on the top)
8.) Your favorite dipping sauce. My favorite is Ranch Dressing but other options might be Creamy Italian or your favorite Pizza Sauce.
Preheat your oven to 375.
Flatten the dough of each biscuit (a tall kitchen glass works well for this if you do not have a dough roller handy). Then place a pepperoni and small pile of cheese in the center of each biscuit. Gather up the edges creating a little pocket and squeeze them together until the pepperoni and cheese are hidden and then place them (squeezed side down) in a greased baking dish. When you have finished stuffing each biscuit brush them all with melted butter or a beaten egg and then sprinkle with Parmesan, Italian Seasoning and Garlic Powder. Bake for 10-12 minutes (or until the biscuits start to lightly brown) and then serve hot with your dipping sauce! EASY!
**Tip** To change things up it would be easy to add additional small toppings (like jalapeno) to the cheese and pepperoni!
