Ingredients

  • 1/2 batch best pizza dough ( Or your favourite, or ready made biscuit dough)
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese in cubes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil minced
  • 1 batch Easy No cook Pizza Sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Pinch off half golf size pieces of dough (depending on your taste, you may make them bigger or smaller) and work with one at a time leaving the rest covered with plastic wrap.
  3. Take one piece of dough in one hand and using your other hands, press down the center making a cavity to stuff the cheese.
  4. Take a cube of cheese and stuff it into the cavity and gently close up the dough covering all the cheese and roll it between the palms of your hands into ball shapes.
  5. Arrange the prepared balls into a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer. Repeat with the remaining dough and cover up the balls with plastic wrap.
  6. In a small bowl, mix the olive, garlic powder and oregano.
  7. Take a pastry brush and brush the tops of the pizza balls with the olive oil mixture or take a pizza ball and dip half of it in the oil mixture.
  8. Bake the pizza popcorn balls for about 12 minutes (depending on the size and your oven).
  9. In the meantime prepare the easy no-cook pizza sauce.
  10. Once the pizza popcorn balls are done, you can brush them with the remaining half of the olive oil mixture (optional). Otherwise, serve them sprinkled with fresh basil and parmesan cheese.
