Pepperoni 'n Cheese Balls

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Marie

Easy to make treat that the kids and grownups alike will love. Cubes of mozzarella and pepperoni slices are enclosed in refrigerator French bread dough and baked. Found this on the internet, but I'm betting it originally came from Pillsbury who makes the dough.

These were really good! I've made them a few times.I did have some trouble rolling out the french bread dough,(the first time I made them) so the next time I made them I used pizza crust instead.
