Say Cheese! Pepperoni Pops

Tailgating season is definitely here, and it’s hard to believe, but today is the last day of the State Fair of Texas. I love entering the cooking contests and seeing what I can come up with. This year I was on the road a lot, but I did manage to tweak a few recipes and enter them.

I’ve seen variations of this recipe, but I wanted to come up with something that could either be super fast and easy, or a more healthy version that might take a little more cooking skills – that’s what the Lifestylist┬« philosophy is all about. This one definitely worked for that – it can be easy enough for a younger child with assistance, or with dough and a marinara sauce from scratch it can be a healthier version.

Here’s the basic recipe – you can customize it to your taste and skill levels.

It’s definitely one of my new favorites, and I can’t wait to share it with my Jr Lifestylists┬«!
