The ingredients and steps are simple!

First, make your garlic butter topping by combining butter, garlic, oregano and Parmesan in a small bowl. Easy, fragrant and the true magic behind what makes this bread so, so good.

Next comes the fun part! Pop open your refrigerated biscuits and cut each biscuit into four pieces. Arrange the pieces tightly together in a greased skillet or baking dish, about 8-10 inches across. Spread on the pizza sauce, sprinkle on the mozzarella, and pop on your mini pepperoni. Set your oven to 400 degrees, slid in your skillet, and let those bites bubble up!

When the bread is risen and the cheese is perfectly gooey, grab your skillet out of the oven and a hungry crowd! Sprinkle with parsley, serve ’em hot and watch everyone go weak in the knees.

You’ll love these appetizers so much, you will HAVE to go back for seconds… and thirds! These cheesy pepperoni pizza bites will rule the appetizer table, and no one will believe how easy they were.
