I'm not big on what I call "canned" recipes. That's where you buy all the ingredients from cans or other prepackaged foods. A lot of people like them because their fast & easy but to me they don't taste homemade. But sometimes I have to break my own rules.


1 can (12 breadsticks) refrigerated breadsticks
16 oz frozen cooked Italian-style meatballs
15 oz can pizza or pasta sauce
1/2 C chopped pepperoni
2 T grated Parmesan cheese
2 C shredded pizza cheese blend

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 11x7 glass baking dish with non stick spray.

Unroll dough into rectangle. Cut crosswise into 8 strips so each strip has 6 pieces. Cut dough at perforations to make 48 pieces. Arrange half of dough pieces randomly in bottom of baking dish.

Place meatballs and sauce in a large microwavable bowl. Cover and microwave on Medium-high for 5-8 minutes. Stir in pepperoni. 

Pour over dough pieces in dish; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Arrange remaining dough pieces over cheese.

Bake 16-20 minutes or until edges are golden and pieces are no longer doughy.

Sprinkle with cheese blend and bake for another 4-5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. 

Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving.
