Chad and I recently decided that we would like to start kicking back and taking in a game at home, here and there. Of course that involves game day food!  You may have noticed we like finger food for game day. Our top game day recipes are mostly popable bites.  You can check them out here.

Being the pizza lovers we are and having the need for something fun and popable, I put together these really easy Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Bombs that are going to rock your world!

They start with frozen dinner rolls (yes that simple) stuffed with pepperoni and mozzarella cheese.  Then they take a dip a scrumptious seasoned butter sauce and Parmesan cheese.  They bake in the oven and come out the most tender scrumptious ooey gooey cheeeeesy pepperoni pizza bombs.



These are so amazing we literally ate half of them the first day.  Perfectly seasoned bread bites are crisp on the outside and packed with ooey gooey cheese and pepperoni.  They are perfectly popable and ooooh so addictive.

You can serve them with sauce (here is a fabulous 5 minute marinara recipe) but honestly, I preferred to enjoy all the cheesiness without the sauce. You can even freeze and reheat them. To reheat simply pop them in a 350°F oven and bake for 10-15 minutes.

    Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Bombs

    Glorious Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Bombs are perfectly seasoned bread bites loaded with pepperoni and tons of ooey gooey cheese, baked to perfection. That makes this easy recipe a game day winner!
    prep time: cook time: total time:

    Ingredients

    • 24 frozen white dinner rolls (I used Rhodes in the freezer section)
    • 3/4 cup (1- 1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
    • 1 1/2 cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
    • 1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 24 ounces mozzarella cheese, cut into 48 bite size pieces
    • 1 (5 ounce) package mini pepperoni
    • Marinara for serving

    Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. Lightly flour counter top.
    3. Place 12 dinner rolls on a microwave safe plate and microwave on defrost for about 2 minutes (or until dough is no longer frozen, but not cooked).  Cut dinner rolls in half with kitchen shears. Repeat with the remaining 12.
    4. Meanwhile cut cheese into 48 even pieces, about 1/2 ounce each.  Prepare a casserole dish by spraying with non stick cooking spray (approximately 9”x13”). Set aside.
    5. In a large bowl melt butter.  Add Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Stir to combine. Set aside.
    6. Toss 1 piece of dough in flour and flatten and stretch like you are making a mini pizza. Stretch dough to about 3” across.
    7. Add a pinch of mini pepperoni (about 6 pieces) and a piece of cheese. Pull the edges of the dough together to create a ball. If they ball won’t seal, tap your finger tips into the flour and crimp the seal together.
    8. Place pizza bombs in the bowl with the butter mixture. Lightly toss to coat. Repeat until all are in bowl. Add 3/4 of Parmesan cheese (reserving a little for the last few minutes in the oven) to bowl.  Toss to combine. If any pizza bombs open, lightly tap fingers in flour and recrimp edges.
    9. Place pizza bombs in prepared dish. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the tops are golden brown and the pizza bombs are no longer doughy. Sprinkle with cheese the last 5 minutes of bake time.
    10. Remove from oven.  Place on a serving tray.  Serve with marinara or alone.
    11. Enjoy!

    1. These look great! I wonder, instead of Rhodes, if you could use dinner roll mix that you pop out of a tube?
