  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  5. Sprinkle about 1 Tbsp of cheese on top of the pepperonis.

  7. Place the pepperoni pizza bites, pinched-sides down, in the baking pan.
  8. Cut remaining pepperoni in half, and add the slices between the rolls.
  9. Brush the tops of the pizza bites with olive oil, and sprinkle oregano, salt, and pepper over the tops of the rolls.
