I know there are so many appetizers to choose from. These by far will be the easiest ones you will ever dream about making These are so quick and easy plus sure to please everyone. Whether for game day, holiday appetizers, picnics, or an anytime snack, these will be that perfect. Serve with freshly heated marinara dipping sauce. These are always asked for and finally the recipe will now be posted so I don't have to write it down for them (smile). The easiest recipes are the best aren't they?

1 pound of Italian Pizza dough  or 2 or more packages of refrigerator biscuits (10 in tube) if you want to make it quick!
granulated garlic
grated cheese Parmesan or Asiago
pepperoni slices as many as it takes for the amount of dough
provolone cheese slices cut into small strips
Cupcake tins
Marinara sauce homemade or store bought for dipping

 Take dough out of rolls and on a floured board or piece of wax paper, flatten with your hand. Take a few pieces of pepperoni and a piece of cheese and place it into the middle of the dough. Roll it up and place it seam down into a oil sprayed cupcake tin.
Do this with all of them until desired amount is completed and placed into tins.
Sprinkle the tops with granulated garlic and grated parmesan cheese.
Bake on a preheated oven at 400 degrees until browned around 14 minutes. Serve with marinara sauce.
