This recipe turned out to be a big hit last night! My husband said he thought they were really good and he’d eat them again. This was a good sign…normally I can tell he doesn’t like something if he avoids saying I should make them again, lol!
Adapted from The Gunny Sack
Ingredients: (for some of the items I don’t give exact amounts since it will be up to you how much you’ll use)
3 cans Pillsbury Homestyle Biscuits (8 to a can)
16 oz block of cheese (I made the first batch with Monterey Jack but next time I will try Mozzarella)
50 slices of pepperoni
1 beaten egg
Kraft grated Parmesan cheese (you know, the kind in the green shaker bottle)
Shredded Parmesan cheese
1 jar pizza sauce
*Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish/pan…put it to the side.
*Preheat your oven to 425.
*Cut the block of cheese into small squares (pictured above).
*Flatten out a biscuit and make a ‘sandwich’ with the two slices of pepperoni and a square of cheese.
*Then, you’ll take the sides of the biscuit and close it around the pepperoni and cheese…it should look like a ball after your finished smoothing out the seam.
*Put them into your greased backing dish with the seam facing the bottom of the dish.
*After all of the pizza balls are placed into you baking dish, beat an egg in a small bowl and use a brush to coat the top of the pizza balls.
*Now take your Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and shredded Parmesan cheese and scatter them on the tops of the pizza balls to your liking.
*Now the original recipe said to bake for 18-20 minutes but I found that this wasn’t enough time. My pizza balls were still very doughy! I put my pizza rolls back into the oven (on a lower rack so that the tops wouldn’t get too browned) for around another 10 minutes, about 30 minutes altogether. I would check yours after 18-20 minutes since I think baking time can vary depending on how thick or thin you made your rolls.
*After you let them cool a little bit, serve them with a side of pizza sauce for dipping and enjoy! My husband loved them.
Let me know if you make these and what you thought of them! One idea I had been toying with was actually making them with a little dab of pizza sauce on the inside…maybe next time?
