  • 1
     
    Place a 10-inch cast iron pan in an oven and preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • 2
    1 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese (divided)
    1 teaspoon dried Oregano 
    1 teaspoon dried Parsley 
    Salt and Pepper
    In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup of the parmesan cheese with the oregano, parsley and season with salt and pepper.
  • 3
    Olive Oil 
    For the Fillings: In a medium saute pan heat a few tablespoons of olive oil over medium. Add the sausage and cook until crispy, breaking up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and allow to cool. Add the bell peppers to the pan and saute for 2 minutes just to soften. Use a slotted spoon and transfer to a plate. In the same pan with the sausage drippings remaining, add the meatballs and cook on all sides until dark golden brown and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate and allow to cool. Toss the filling ingredients plus shredded mozzarella together to combine.

    2 pounds Pizza Dough
    1/2 pound Hot Italian Sausage (casing removed) 
    1/3 cup diced Red and Yellow Bell Peppers 
    16 miniature Meatballs (your favorite meatball recipe) 
    1/2 pound sliced Pepperoni (chopped)
    1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella Cheese 
    On a lightly flour surface, with a floured rolling pin, roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Use a floured 3-inch biscuit cutter to cut circles out of the dough. Place a small amount of filling into the center of each circle. Once all the dough circles are topped with filling begin to pinch the edges of each circle together to form filled balls of dough.

    Remove the hot pan from the oven and drizzle with a few tablespoons of olive oil. Place the balls seam side down into the pan. Brush the top with olive oil and sprinkle with the cheese mixture. Bake for 15 minutes or until deep golden brown on top. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with the remaining parmesan cheese, anchovies and warm marinara sauce for dipping.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. If you don't have a biscuit cutter, then you can use a glass to cut your dough into circles.
    2.  Personalize the dippers by creating your own fillings.
