1 pack frozen phyllo dough shells
6 pieces of pepperoni
Preheat oven to 400. Cut pepperonis into quarters. Spoon about a teaspoon of pizza sauce into each shell (eyeball it). Place about a teaspoon (again eyeball it) of cheese on top. Add 2 pepperoni quarters. Place cups on a baking sheet topped with foil and bake 10 minutes until cheese is bubbly and browning. Kids and adults will love this!
