Ingredients

  • 5 ounces mini pepperoni you can also substitute 1/3 pound cooked Italian sausage, ground fine after cooking and cooling slightly
  • 8 ounces Mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 8 ounces pizza sauce plus more for dipping, if desired
  • red pepper flake to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 package wonton wrappers

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Combine the pepperoni, cheese, sauce, and red pepper flake in a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the egg and water.
  • Working in batches, lay the wonton wrappers out on a flat surface in the shape of a diamond, with one point pointing towards you.
  • Lightly brush the edges of the wrapper with the egg wash.
  • Spoon about a tablespoon of the sauce mixture into the center of the wonton.
  • Grab the topmost (furthest away from you) point of the diamond and fold over the sauce mixture. Press down around the edges to seal.
  • Fold in the left and right sides and press down on the edges to seal.
  • Finally, fold over the bottom side (the point pointing towards you) and then press lightly around the edges to seal. Place seam-side down on a baking sheet lined with foil or use a silpat.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve hot with warmed additional pizza sauce for dipping if desired.

Notes

You can make these ahead and freeze them. Just pop them in a 425 F oven for 15-20 minutes when ready to heat and eat.
