Turkey Pepperoni & Mozzarella Pizza Bombs + My Trip to St. Louis

Pizza Bomb

It’s no secret that pizza is my all-time favorite food if you’ve read some of my other entries (like these Prosciutto & Mozzarella Pizza Skewers). It’s basically a running joke with my friends; constantly posting pictures of pizza themed shirts, bags, key chains, and other various swag on my personal Facebook page all in the name of my love of pizza.

In fact, this last weekend Dylan and I took a trip to St. Louis and we had maybe the third argument of our entire year together, about pizza. In a nutshell, our baseball stadium hot dogs didn’t tie us over and were starving when we returned back to the hotel room. I, of course, requested we order a pizza.

Busch Stadium
Busch Stadium. We’re Cubs fans, but you can’t beat a good view and a good stadium.

We’ll just say that I “fell asleep” when he was down in the hotel lobby getting the pizza I NEEDED, and an hour or so later I woke up from my cat nap and found that he hadn’t woke me up when the pizza got there. I was not a happy camper. We found ourselves laughing about it not long afterwards and continued to laugh about it all weekend long.

Speaking of weekends, I haven’t been posting as much and just want to address that quick. I am B-U-S-Y. I know I know, not an excuse, and I’m still here and going strong. In fact, I entered into a pretty awesome partnership that I can’t wait to share with you guys. It’s going to bring lots of fun recipes, so I’ve been burning the midnight oil on that project.

Combine that with this weekend in St. Louis we had planned (we saw Mumford and Sons preform – my FAVE!), and this upcoming weekend I’m in Milwaukee for a girl’s weekend, and things are just flying by. Here are few pics of the amazing food I had in St. Louis –

This is what we call 'burger heaven' - the top burger is Lamb patty, Jameson spiked date spread, bacon, peppered goat cheese and arugula. The burger below is Peppercorn crusted aged sirloin, blue cheese, bacon jam, Caramelized onions and port glaze. Restaurant: Bailey's Range.

Cheese and Charcuterie Board
Be still my beating heart! Cheese and Charcuterie Board from Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar has gorgonzola, brie, Dubliner, aged dry rubbed smoked NY strip, jalapeño summer sausage, homemade bread, nuts and dried fruits. NOT PICTURED: Shelby. The best damn bartender I’ve ever had!

Someday I’ll be able to do this full time and have all day to cook, write, and photograph, but until then my bank demands to have the mortgage paid, so I gots to work.

Anywho, onto the matter at hand. These Turkey Pepperoni & Mozzarella Pizza Bombs. I stumbled upon these guys by having leftover turkey pepperoni that I had no idea what to do with. One day I needed a homemade pizza fix and I needed it badly. Those damn bags of pepperoni have something like 80 slices in them – who needs that many pieces of pepperoni?!

Combine that with the econo bags of low-fat string cheese we have and I had the makings of snack on my hands.

These pizza bombs are so easy and fun to make, and are great for both adults and children. The garlic butter adds a huge depth of flavor to the gooey, stringy mozzarella.

DISCLAIMER: I tried to make these with Italian sausage, green pepper and mushrooms and it was a disaster trying to pinch these together. The less ingredients the easier time you’ll have making these.

  • 40 slices of turkey pepperoni
  • 8 pieces of low fat mozzarella string cheese
  • 1 tube of reduced fat crescent rolls
  • 3 tbsp. organic unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. dried parsley
  • Dipping sauce of your choice!


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Unroll a tube of reduced fat crescent rolls and tear along the perforations into 8 pieces.
  3. Since each roll will be in a triangle shape, you'll want to reshape into a rectangle.
  4. On each rectangle place 5 pieces of pepperoni in a row, then one piece of string cheese on top.
  5. Fold over the dough and pinch together until each pizza bomb is sealed and looks like a breadstick.
  6. Place on an uncreased cookie sheet.
  7. In a small bowl melt the butter. Stir in the garlic powder and parsley.
  8. Brush garlic butter onto each pizza bomb.
  9. Cook for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
