Pepperoni Pizza Fried Mozzarella

Servings: 1
This Pepperoni Pizza Fried Mozzarella is pretty much the most heavenly appetizer I've ever had. In fact, who needs a main dish when you've got this?!!!



  • In a small skillet heat the oils over medium heat.
  • Place a pepperoni slice on top of each round of cheese, while holding the pepperoni in place press the cheese into the breadcrumbs, sprinkle a little on top and press that in, turning over once and pressing the breadcrumbs against the sides as well.
  • Dip the cheese back into the milk on both sides and back into the bread crumbs again.
  • Quickly add to the hot oil.
  • Allow to cook for 30-60 seconds or until the breadcrumbs begin to brown.
  • Carefully, but quickly flip the cheese and cook until browned on the other side.
  • Using a slotted spoon, lift the cheese out of the oil, allowing to drip for a moment and place in a small dish with warmed sauce.
  • Enjoy!


These are great served as appetizers.
I use two oils because I love the flavor from the olive oil and the canola doesn't burn as fast. If you need to use one or the other you can.
