Pizza Balls

Who doesn't love pizza right? But when you have little mouths that there's no way that they are going to manage to pick up a normal size slice and have at it, you need to get creative about it.

I have some that like crust. Others that wont even eat close to the crust. My wee ones well, they are just at that age where they pick everything up and fist it into their mouths two handed and look like a chipmunk!

So when my "Awesmazing" (that is a word my oldest coined after camp last year) sister Keeley Saint James found this floating around Facebook it was almost a very nice sisterly demand to give it a try. She clamed it could be the answer to all my pizza troubles.

So here it is:

Pizza Balls:

What you need:

3 cans Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits (10 per can),
pepperoni slices,
Either shredded or block cheese, cut in small equal cubes
1 beaten egg,
1 Tbsp. Parmesan,
1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 Tbsp. Garlic powder
1 jar pizza sauce
cooking spray
wax paper
13x9 baking pan

Make it:

Put wax paper down over work surface and open biscuits

Flatten biscuits out with the heal of your hand (Great to get the kids help you do!)

Place 1 peperoni in the center of flatten biscuit

Add cheese
Top with next peperoni
Gather edges of the biscuit and pat together to make a ball

In a small bowl crack and beat egg
Brush Pizza balls with beaten egg

Mix Italian seasoning, Garlic powder and parmesan
Sprinkle mix over Pizza Balls
Turn Oven to 350
Bake for 18 min

Remove from oven and let cool for 5 min
Serve with Pizza sauce on the side and Enjoy!
