Pepperoni Pizza Poppers

My friend Molly shared this addictive recipe with me and I must say I'm hooked! 
These bite size Pizza Poppers are full of flavor and super easy to make! Since I'm in full nesting mode right now I doubled the batch and frozen half for after I have my baby and need a quick meal to reheat. 
 Hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

These Poppers are a hit with both adults and kids and make a tasty game day appetizer!
