Pepperoni-Pesto Popovers

Pepperoni-Pesto Popovers

This is the final Pillsbury Bake-Off recipe we tried.  I love pepperoni and pesto, so this was perfect for me!  These were really easy to make.  Just unroll the dough, top it, cut it and roll it up.  I could have eaten the whole batch myself.  I used turkey pepperoni and reduced-fat crescent rolls, so eating the whole batch wouldn’t have been that bad, right?  I would add more pepperoni next time – I thought 3 per popover wasn’t enough.  We ate these for lunch and served our little popovers with vokda sauce.  I would definately make these again.  I think these would be great little snacks for a party.  We might make these again for the Super Bowl.

(Printable Recipe)

1 tablespoon Crisco® 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Pure Olive Oil
1 tablespoon semolina flour or cornmeal
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 cup basil pesto
18 slices (1 1/2-inch size) pepperoni
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (2 oz)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Heat oven to 375°F. In 6-cup popover pan or 6 regular-size muffin cups (2 3/4×1 1/4 inches), brush 1/2 teaspoon of the oil over bottom and side of each cup. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of the flour over bottom and side of each cup.

Unroll dough sheet on cutting board. Sprinkle with garlic salt; spread with pesto. Top with pepperoni, arranging slices in 6 rows by 3 rows. Sprinkle with cheeses.

Using pizza cutter, cut dough in half lengthwise, then cut each half crosswise into thirds to make 6 equal pieces. Starting at short end, roll up each piece; place seam side down in popover cup so center of dough piece is on bottom and ends of dough are facing up (filling will show).

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Using knife or metal spatula, remove popovers from pan. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.

  1. They look good but I think I'd leave out the pepperoni on a few of them. The kiddos love it but I'm not a big fan.

    Happy Friday, Steph!
