D I R E C T I O N S
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut each pepperoni about half way up the top, bottom, left, and right side – in the pattern of a cross.
  3. Place the pepperonis in a mini muffin pan, allowing the cut sides to overlap and create a cup.
  4. Bake pepperonis in a preheated oven for 5 minutes, until crispy.
  5. Remove the pepperonis from the pan and use a paper towel to absorb the residual grease from the muffin pans. Return the pepperonis to the pan.
  6. Next, spoon half a teaspoon of pizza sauce into each cup. Then place a small cube of mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce.
  7. Return to the oven for 2 – 5 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
  8. Remove pepperonis from the pan, transfer to a plate, then garnish with diced fresh basil (optional).
