I first discovered this magical dish on Pinterest, my foodie addiction. If you love to cook or just stare at food, do yourself a favor & follow me on Pinterest over on the left. Anyway, after I saw this I immediately thought of my husband. He has a sick obsession with pizza and pizza sauce so this was right up his alley. On a particularly glum day, he asked me to make it. I figured I could find something in our sickness filled house that I could use in place of some ingredients & here is what I found & what you’ll need!
– 2 rolls of Pillsbury Thin Crust dough
– 1 Package of pepperoni, 2 if you want extra!
– 6 oz Mozzeralla cheese cut into about 48-50 cubes
– 3 cloves of garlic or 2 tablespoons pre-chopped garlic
– 6 tablespoons butter
– Herbs of your choice! If I was in a hurry I’d go with regular pizza seasoning but this time I used basil & parsley.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix the butter, garlic and herbs. You can do this in the microwave in a heat safe measuring cup or over the heat in a pan. Melt thoroughly. Brush the inside of the pan with this lightly.
To create the balls break off a hunk of dough. Place the pepperoni then the piece of cheese before rolling or folding into a ball. Make sure you seal the ends as you go. Keep doing this until you’ve used up all of your cheese.
At the end, brush the remaining butter mixture over the top. It will settle down and bake through to flavor and brown the whole bread.
Bake until lightly browned and bubbly, about 40 minutes.
To remove, just turn out onto a serving platter. Mine stuck a bit so i just ran a butterknife lightly around the outside.
As stated before, I found this on pinterest! Here’s is the site where I first adapted this recipe to suit my needs.
