The Pepperoni Pizza Triangles

image

Here is an idea for using regular sliced bread and making these fancy little Pepperoni Triangle Pizzas as an inexpensive and easy way to make a delicious snack,  party appetizers, or if you just love pizza. It’s made using sliced bread, olive oil, fresh tomatoes, pepperoni, and cheese, and seasoning the outside with garlic seasoning.  This is for 1 serving.  Multiply as needed. Here we go……

2 slices bread

2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup shredded Italian or Mexican cheese blends

1/4 Roma tomato chopped into tiny bite size pieces

7 slices of small size pepperoni cut into tiny bite size pieces (you can either use the pepperoni that is ready to serve as is, or you can sauté it in a non stick pan for 5 minutes on medium heat and let it cool on a paper towel lined plate for it to drain the extra fat and become crispy….in the sandwich though, it will not be too crispy because of the tomato)

Garlic powder, paprika,  and dried parsley flakes

non stick pan or skillet

pastry brush

spatula

Salt for LIGHTLY sprinkling on bread after it’s done (and I mean just a few drops of salt between your fingertips), optional

Start warming your pan or skillet on medium heat. Cut your pepperoni and tomatoes and put to the side. With a pastry brush, season your bread with olive oil on both sides. Start “toasting” it in your pan for 1 minute. Flip them over and start building your pizza.  Put half of your cheese first,  then pepperoni,  then tomatoes, then top it off with remaining cheese. Cover sandwich with the side you just toasted for 1 minute. Using a spatula,  gently press your sandwich to male it a little flat. After about 5 minutes (we are looking for a nice toasty color here, so you may toast it for less or more time, depending on your stove, so please use your judgment) carefully flip your sandwich over and toast the second side for about 5 minutes (again, please use your judgment). Sprinkle both sides with garlic, paprika, and dried parsley, and continue to toast for another minute on each side. Remove from heat, let cool, and either leave whole, cut into triangles,  or even 4 squares. (Note: I tried cutting them into eights, instead of 4 triangles, and the filling came out, so I found the best way to cut them was in fourths). That’s it! Enjoy!
