Amazing Pepperoni Pizza Bombs explode with flavor with every bite! They are loaded with pepperoni, cheese, and sauce to create a delicious POP of flavor in your mouth – hence the name!
This appetizer is perfectly gooey! Filled with cheese and pepperoni and enveloped in a soft and buttery crescent roll. They are easy to make and are even perfect for lunch, dinner, or a snack! This post contains affiliate links.
Sadly, I make the most lackluster homemade pizza! Can anyone say “tasteless blob of dough?” Yes, I confess I am the worst traditional from-scratch pizza dough maker ever.
I am lucky if the pizza even lifts off the stone. However, I can make pizza from naan bread, English muffins, or these mega delicious Pepperoni & Cheese Pizza Bombs.
I love how oozing these are with cheese and bursts of flavor. They are also pretty inexpensive to make. You can use cheese cubes or string cheese. One string cheese piece can make 3 bombs!
They are totally delicious and encompass the tasty flavors of pizza in one slightly golden, crispy, yet flaky bite.
I only recently discovered the beauty and magic of crescent dough so I have basically been wrapped up all sorts of yummy fillings in this easy to work with dough.
I used Homestyle RAGÚ® Pasta Sauce Thick and Hearty Traditional in my Pizza Bombs. It’s inexpensive and it works perfectly in this recipe.
A healthy teaspoonful in each pizza bomb makes for the perfectly balanced party in your mouth experience.
Plus, you can heat a side bowl of pasta sauce to dip your bombs into for an extra boost of flavor!
