Cheesy Pepperoni Bombs


40 pieces Maple Leaf® Natural Selections® Pizza Pepperoni, halved

1 391g tube prepared pizza crust

2 cups pizza mozzarella, shredded

1/3 cup garlic spread, prepared and melted

Cooking spray

Prepared pizza sauce or marinara sauce for dipping- optional 

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Lightly spray a baking sheet with oil.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and lightly fry pepperoni for about 2 to 3 minutes until just starting to brown and crisp. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Unroll dough onto prepared baking sheet. Using a pizza wheel or sharp paring knife cut dough horizontally and then lengthwise into 7 equal rectangle strips.
  5. Divide cheese and place over each strip of dough followed by pepperoni.
  6. Roll each strip into a ball and cinch the sides tightly while using your fingers to push in any ingredients that may be falling out.
  7. Pull cinch downwards to create a ball and place seam side down on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  8. Brush each ball with garlic butter.
  9. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes on middle rack of oven. Set oven to broil for an additional 1 to 2 minutes for a golden top.
  10. Once out of the oven immediately brush with remaining melted garlic butter. Serve immediately with marinara sauce if using.
