How to Make Pepperoni Pizza Bites

MY LATEST RECIPES

A standard can of refrigerated (aka “exploding”) biscuits contains 8 biscuits. Cut each one in half, flattening it into a small disk, stuffing it with cheese & pepperoni, and shaping it into a tiny Pizza Surprise ball.

Then, arrange the Pepperoni Pizza Bites balls in a baking dish. I like to brush the tops of the biscuits with garlic butter sauce. For obvious reasons.

Stuff the spaces between with pepperoni, top with cheese, and add some fresh chopped parsley if you like the color green.

These Pizza Bites are perfect for so many reasons:

  1. They start with exploding biscuits. You know, the cans that pop open.
  2. Cheese + Pepperoni
  3. It doesn’t feel like a weekend if there’s no pizza.
  4. Cheaper than delivery.
  5. Because it’s [insert sport name] season!

I have adapted the original baking time and temperature, but “until golden brown” is a good rule of thumb here.

My favorite dipping sauces include Homemade Marinara Sauce and the most amazing Homemade Ranch Dressing. Dive in! That’s not a request!

  1. This is such a genius idea! Love how uncomplicated and easy it is, yet looks stunning and delicious!

    Any suggestion for the can of refrigerator biscuits since you can’t find those where I live. What could I use instead?

    • Hi Stella! Thanks for your comments. You could use any kind of store-bought or homemade pizza dough (or frozen bread dough). They are all delicious! Thanks again.

  2. Oh I know what you’re talking about! Boyfriend always tells me to stop showing him recipe links+photos and rather make them, he’ll be more enthusiastic when he can taste it, when for me it is enough to look at an apetizing photo :-)

    This is such a genius recipe, love how uncomplicated and quick it is, and also how stunning and delicious it looks!

    But you can’t find “can of refrigerator biscuits” where I live, any suggestion what I could use instead?

  3. Hi Meggan!
    Sorry for the duplicate comment, my browser froze.

    Thanks, I’ll try that :-)

  4. any way this works with a glass dish for the oven???

    • Absolutely, I don’t see why not! I haven’t tried it, but it’s just like anything else – brownies, cake mixes, whatever. You should have no issue using a glass dish. With cakes mixes, etc. the oven temperature is the same for metal and glass pans, it’s just a lower temp if you use dark or nonstick. So you should be fine! Maybe check it 5 minutes early just in case?

  5. Thank you! Just put them in the oven :)
