One of my educational workshops recently had “light refreshments.” I offered to bring an appetizer to contribute to the table and needed something quick, inexpensive, and yummy. I went to my ever growing list of pinterest boards. In the Appetizers section, I saw a recent pin for “pizza balls” and knew “this is the one!” I had all of the ingredients and it was simple enough to throw together. The results: AMAZING!!

This was pinned by “Wellcooked.” Check out her awesome blog. It appears that this originated on another blog, “Riches to Rags” by Dori, but I could not find the recipe there. She does have a Muffin Pan Pizza that looks yummy!!
Ok, for the recipe:
You need three cans of biscuits. 60 Pepperonis, a block of Colby cheese, beaten egg, Italian Seasoning, Garlic, Parmesan Cheese. Cut the block of cheese into 30 pieces. Flatten each biscuit. Put a pepperoni in the center, place a piece of cheese on top of the pepperoni, and another pepperoni on top of that. Pull the sides around the pepperoni and cheese. Place in a baking dish. Brush with beaten egg, sprinkle with parmesan, garlic, and Italian seasonings. Bake on 350 until lightly brown. Serve with Pizza Sauce as a dip.
Now, those of you who follow my blog, know that I never have everything I need, when I need it, and I have to alter the recipe a bit. However, this time, it wasn’t to make it better. I don’t think this recipe could be any better. My changes: I didn’t have Colby cheese, so I used mozzarella. I also have a child allergic to egg, so I used Olive oil spray on top of the rolls instead of egg. I only had one can of “flaky biscuits,” so I pulled these apart to make 20, instead of 10. I like that I can make as many or a few as I want! These were AMAZING!! Oh, I did sprinkle a little Italian seasoning on the mozzarella inside the rolls. These are wonderful hot, but still yummy after cooling.
