I love  these little bites made with peppers, pepperoni or hot capicola ham and of course loads of cheese!  Here is an easy appetizer that you can throw everything together in minutes for a tasty appetizer the gang will love! Great for any gathering and with any party you can make these ahead of time and freeze them! 
These are like having a mini bread calzone or meat pie all in one tasty little bite!
