Pizza Poppers Recipe


  1. Preheat your oven to 375F and lightly grease a 12 tin muffin tray with cooking spray. Sprinkle the bottom of each muffin tin with a small spoonful of parmesan cheese.
  2. Divide the pizza dough into 12 equal pieces and press into a pizza shape, 3-4’’ in diameter. Fill each dough piece with a small spoonful of sauce, a slice of pepperoni, and mozzarella and close up into a ball shape.
  3. Transfer the pizza dough balls into the muffin tins seam-side down and gently press down the tops of each slightly. Spray the tops with cooking spray and then top each with a small amount of marinara sauce, parmesan, the italian seasoning, and small pieces of the remaining pepperoni.
  4. Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and then serve warm with the remaining marinara sauce on the side for dipping.
