I had pepperoni in the pantry just WAITING for the right day to make this recipe! I will definitely pick a different pepperoni for the next batch. This particular one was extra greasy. What a nice change for lunch though! Being a big East Coast NY Style Pizza lover... this was definitely going out on a limb for us.
This is like the perfect recipe to bring for a pot-luck lunch.
