This are so easy to make, y’all! I made these for my husband during a football game and he LOVED them. He said they were his new favorite snack.
So if you need a good appetizer for GAME DAY, you need to give these guys a shot!
These literally have three ingredients and that is ALL! The hardest part is getting the pepperonis to lay flat on the tray, and that’s not hard!!
Talk about impressing your hubby with these little guys! Oh and add a delish marinara sauce to dip it in! I like using Dave’s Marinara Sauce! I found it at Sam’s Club.
This little appetizer is a Low Carb dish and THM S for my Trim Healthy Mama buds!!

A delish low carb pepperoni bite that is easy and yummy for GAME DAY!

Do you slice the mozzarella stick in half down the long side or short side? Thanks!
short side. I’ll try to make a video and post on my facebook page! 🙂

Thanks! I used to have lots of appetizer recipes pre-THM. However, I have a hard time finding ones now that my family enjoys as much as I do. They all love pepperoni, and I can’t wait to make these! They will be perfect for all those finger-food gatherings that I never know what to take with me!
You are so welcome! I tried these out on my husband and he absolutely loved them. He’s on plan with me half the time so that’s a good complement. Oh go check out my new Bacon-Wrapped Buffalo Bites too! SOOOOOO GOOOD!
Carolyn Dacvis says
How many of these would be a serving?
I can easily eat 10! Really just however you feel good enough eating. They are extremely low carb.

My broiler feature on my stove only has high and low. Can I bake these in the overnight on 425 or do I broil on high and keep a close eye on them?
Anne B says
Oven not overnight lol
hmmm… i’d try them on broil low. Just watch them. They may need to broil longer. 🙂
Anne B says
Thanks! Will try these and the bacon wrapped buffalo bites for the big game Sunday 🙂
Do you know about how many is good for an S snack?
My son (12) and I made 30 today because that’s what fit on our small cookie sheet. They took a little over 5 minutes on Broil setting. He sliced the mozzarella a little thick and I don’t think he counted correctly each time. Some of the cheese pieces were pretty big…lol. They turned out great though! I can’t wait to try them tomorrow. We were glad the parchment paper absorbed a lot of the grease, which helped with clean up. I tapped the “bites” a few times with a paper towel afterward also. Thanks for the recipe!
I’d say 10 would be good for an S snack! You could probably do more as a meal but add some salad on the side to get in your greens! 🙂
Thank you!! I appreciate the quick reply. The pepperoni bites are great! I thought they might be good just thrown on top of a salad too. 🙂
Boar’s Head sells large sliced pepperoni, and I use these to make pizzas using the pepperoni as the crust. My biggest frustration is trying to keep the shredded cheese from being messy. Thanks for the idea to use cheese sticks.

Genius and delicious! Who need pizza with these super easy, quick snacks! Thank you!!
Has anyone tried putting a tsp. or so on the pepperoni, then the cheese? I’m wondering if it would run off.
It might run… but not too much!
Can these pepperoni mozzarella bites be made ahead and then warmed up the next day? Will they still be crispy?
I think it would work!
Has anyone tried baking these in the oven instead of broiling?
You can… bake at 400 degress but watch… it will take longer to get the melt that you want.
I made these today for an afternoon snack for the week. They were so simple and satisfying!
