Directions

  • 1 Heat the oven to 400°. Put the pie crusts on the counter for 15 minutes to soften.
  • 2 Put the pizza sauce and cheese in the bowl. Stir with the spoon until mixed. Save for later (you will need this in step 5).
  • 3 Unfold each pie crust. Take off the plastic sheets. Press out the fold lines on pie crusts, using your fingers. Cut each pie crust into seven 3 1/2-inch circles, using the biscuit or cookie cutter.
  • 4 Cut each pepperoni slice in half on the cutting board, using the knife.
  • 5 Put 2 pepperoni halves on center of each pie crust circle. Top with about 1 teaspoon of the cheese mixture.
  • 6 Brush the edge of each pie crust circle with a little water, using the pastry brush. Fold each circle in half over filling. Press edges of circles with the fork to seal. Place pizza poppers on the cookie sheet (you do not need to grease the cookie sheet).
  • 7 Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until pizza poppers are light golden brown. Use the pot holders to take cookie sheet out of oven. Right away, take pizza poppers off cookie sheet, using the pancake turner. Cool for 5 minutes on the wire cooling rack before serving.
  • 8 Serve warm pizza poppers with extra pizza sauce for dipping, if you like.
