Pizza Sausage Balls


Published: Friday, June 26, 2020

3.5 oz. pkg. pepperoni

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 lb. ground Italian sausage

1 tsp. garlic powder

2 tsp. Italian seasoning

2 c. baking mix (like Bisquick)

1 c. shredded Mozzarella cheese

1 c. shredded Parmesan cheese (not grated)

Pizza sauce for dipping

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a few sheet pans with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Use a food processor or small food chopper to chop the pepperoni into tiny pieces.

Combine the cream cheese, chopped pepperoni, sausage, garlic powder and Italian seasoning with a stand or hand mixer. Add the baking mix and mix to combine. Add cheese and mix to combine.

Roll dough into 1 ½" balls and place them about 2" apart on the baking sheets. (Using a cookie scoop will help keep them uniform in size.)

Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with warmed pizza sauce for dipping. —40 pizza balls.
