Dough Balls

Did you ever make dough balls? We recently made them filled with pepperoni and cheese with our kids. We gathered around our Wooden Whale island and worked together to make dinner.* Not only did we love to make them, we loved to eat them!


Frozen Dough 

Pepperoni, cut up

Mozzarella Cheese, grated

Garlic Salt or Garlic Powder

Pizza Sauce (or ranch!) for dipping

First, you start with premade dough. You can find this in the freezer section at your local grocery store. (Make sure you give yourself time to follow the manufacturer's directions for thawing out the dough.)

Once the dough is thawed, using your hands or a rolling pin, make a rectangular shape. Cut the dough using a pizza cutter.

Thawed out dough cut into squares.

Take one of the sections that you just cut and flatten it as much as you can. Add the cheese, then pepperoni.

Fold over the other side, then the top and the bottom.

Roll the ball in the palm of your hands. Then pinch the top of the dough so everything is held together tightly.

Sprinkle with Garlic Salt or Garlic Powder. Spray a cookie sheet with oil. Bake for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees, depending on your oven. Let cool.

Dough balls don't require a lot, but are versatile. Try them with chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and crumbled up graham crackers for a sweet treat. What would you try in your dough balls? Tell us below.

*Make sure to use a cutting board if your island top is not treated for cutting.
