How to Make Party Pizza Poppers

by Heather Howard

Easy to make pizza appetizers for any party or game!


  • Refrigerated Pie Crust
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Pepperoni
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Garlic Powder
  • Basil (fresh or ground)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Delicious supplies!

    Step 2

    Let the crust sit on the counter for 15 minutes to get to room temp. Then lay out flat on cutting board. Use a cookie/biscuit/glass to cut out 3 inch circles like above.

    Step 3

    Step 4

    Mix all other ingredients together except pepperoni's. I do not have measurements of any of the ingredients because it's customized to your taste buds.

    Step 5

    I cut my pepperoni's into quarters beforehand but you can cut them however you want. Add pepperoni to the middle of the crust.

    Step 6

    •IMPORTANT: only put a teaspoon full of the mixture in the middle of the crust.• Then brush the edges with no sauce on it with water. Fold it over to make a crescent moon shape and push edges w/ fork.

    Step 7

    Because if you put too much, it will spill out like this. Then it burns in the oven, which is never good.

    Step 8

    Place on ungreased baking pan and cook at 425 for 12 min.

    Step 9

    As soon as you pull them out, use a spatula and place them on a cooling rack for 5 min.

    Step 10

    Now serve to your hungry party guests. I made these along with honey bbq wings for the UT game and there are still wings pizza poppers though. I guess they were pretty good!
