Keto Friendly Pizza Bombs
Prep Time:20 minutes
Servings:12
Ingredients:
  • 1/2 lb. Minerva Dairy Farmers Butter Cheese, shredded
  • 4 ounces soft cream cheese
  • 36 slices deli sandwich pepperoni (the thinner the better)
  • 12 mushroom slices (approximately 1/4" thick)
  • 1/2 onion, diced fine
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced fine
  • 1/4 lb. cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 12 banana pepper rings (optional)
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Place 3 slices of pepperoni in each spot on a muffin tin - fan them out and pack in to form cups.
  • Place a slice of mushroom in the bottom of each cup - it helps to hold down the pepperoni and soaks up some of the "juice".
  • Place in oven and back until edges are starting to brown.
  • While pepperoni cups are baking, combine the cheeses in a mixing bowl.
  • In another bowl, combine the cherry tomatoes, onion, red bell pepper, oregano and garlic.
  • Remove the pepperoni cups once the edges start to brown and place about 1 1/2-2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture into each cup.
  • Top with the veggie mixture and a banana pepper (optional).
  • Bake for an additional 5 minutes or until the tops are starting to turn golden brown.
  • Let cool slightly before removing each cup to a cooling rack.
  • Place paper towels under the cooling each to catch any excess grease. Serve warm.
