Ingredients

  • 24 slices sandwich pepperonis
  • 1 cup mozzarella cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • fresh basil shredded

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Cut each pepperoni about half way up the top, bottom, left, and right side - in the pattern of a cross.

  3. Place the pepperonis in a mini muffin pan, allowing the cut sides to overlap and create a cup.

  4. Bake pepperonis in a preheated oven for 5 minutes, until crispy.

  5. Remove the pepperonis from the pan and use a paper towel to absorb the residual grease from the muffin pans. Return the pepperonis to the pan.



  6. Next, spoon half a teaspoon of pizza sauce into each cup. Then place a small cube of mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce.

  7. Return to the oven for 2 - 5 minutes, until the cheese has melted.

  8. Remove pepperonis from the pan, transfer to a plate, then garnish with diced fresh basil (optional).
