Swiss Cheese Pizzas

"This is an old family favorite. We pretty much can't have a gathering without these. There is no written recipe, it has been passed around verbally since I was a child. Everyone I've made these for has loved them. I hope you do too!"

Ready In:


  • 1 loaf rye cocktail bread
  • 8 ounces grated swiss cheese (I grate my own and domestic works fine)
  • 1 (6 ounce) package hormel pepperoni slices, chopped
  • 12 small onion, finely minced
  • mayonnaise, enough to bind (I have never measured this - I add mayo to the mixture until it holds together, it's hard to mess th)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Line baking sheet with foil.
  • Mix all ingredients (except for bread) together.
  • Spread cheese/pepperoni mixture onto the rye breads and place them on baking sheet (s).
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the cheese is browned and bubbling (the bottom of the breads should become brown and crispy).
  • Enjoy!

    Different, and has always been a big hit with guests. Great snack or appetizer. Can be made ahead and refrigerated before baking for large groups. Thanks Deborah.

    We did this tonight 3/30/06 and loved it. I used regular wheat bread and added a slice of tomato on each piece of bread and then put the topping on and a final dash of oregano. It turned out great! Will make again. Thanks for adding the receipe to this site and adding to our lives :) Blessings, Tina
