These pepperoni pizza bombs with homemade pizza sauce are a quick and easy snack that you can whip up in minutes. This fun recipe is sure to be a big hit with your family!

We’re right smack dab in the middle of summer vacation and other than “I’m bored”, the only other thing my kids are programmed to say is “I’m hungry”.  They have a meal, tell me they’re full and then they are hungry again 10 minutes later. This mysterious hunger only seems to happen when they are out on school breaks, too.  Weird, huh?  Anyways, since my boys are literally always hungry, I make them a lot (and I do mean a lot) of snacks when they are home. These Pepperoni Pizza Bombs are a favorite in my house.

There usually aren’t any Pepperoni Pizza Bombs left for me, but on a rare occasion I get one for myself….if I sneak it before I serve them to the kids. HA!
