pepperoni pizza mini pull-aparts!

Big Steven and I decided it would be fun to have my sister-in-law, Kelly (who you will be soon be getting an ode to), over every Wednesday with her kiddos and hubs for a family dinner and to show her that cooking can be super easy.
Kid friendly all around!

This is a more fun take on my Pizza Cups.
Pinterest has had all kinds of pull-apart ideas flowing around and the possibilities are really endless!

Pepperoni Pizza Mini Pull-Aparts

1 package Hormel Pepperoni - cut into small pieces (or you could get small pepperonis)
1 10 ct Refrigerated Biscuits
1 jar Pizza Sauce (or homemade)
1 cup Shredded Mozarella
2 tbsp Butter - melted
Garlic Salt

Preheat oven to 375.

Smoosh your biscuits and cut them into quarters.  Put a few small slices of Pepperoni in each quarter and roll into a ball.  Place 4 balls into one muffin tin side by side.  Repeat until you use up all your biscuits.

Next - and this is a job you can assign to the kiddos - put Mozarella on top of and in between each ball in each muffin tin to create a cheesy goodness inside when it bakes.

Combine Melted Butter with Garlic Salt (to your taste) and brush Garlic Butter over each muffin (also a great job to get kids involved in cooking).

Bake for 8-10 minutes and serve with warm Pizza Sauce on the side or on top!
