Ingredients

  • 6 to 8 tablespoons (90 to 120 mL) butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2 mL) garlic powder
  • 2 cans (5 count each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Flaky Rolls
  • 40 small slices pepperoni (about 3 oz/85 g)
  • 8 oz (250 g) mozzarella cheese, cut into 20 pieces
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/4 cups (300 mL) canned pizza sauce, heated

Method

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 12-cup fluted tube pan with non-stick cooking spray. In small bowl, mix melted butter, Italian seasoning and garlic powder.
  2. Separate 1 can of dough into 10 pieces; press or roll each into 3-inch round. Place 2 pepperoni slices in centre of each biscuit round. Top each with piece of mozzarella cheese. Bring dough up around filling; press edge to seal and shape each into ball. Roll in butter mixture; place 10 balls in pan.
  3. Sprinkle dough balls with Parmesan cheese. Repeat with remaining can of rolls, placing balls over balls in pan. Pour remaining butter mixture over top.
  4. Bake 33 to 38 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Gently loosen bread from sides of pan. Place large heatproof plate upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over. Remove pan. Serve warm with warm pizza sauce for dipping.
