Pepperoni Chips

Pepperoni pizzas are delicious, we all know this.  In my opinion, the best pepperonis are the ones that have crispy edges.  So when my sister passed this recipe along to me, I knew it was going to be good!

Besides being yummy, addicting, and quick to make, these little chips are healthy!  You can use regular pepperonis if you'd like, but the turkey pepperonis are leaner and you can't taste a difference!  My sister originally tried this recipe because she is on a gluten-free diet, so anti-glutener's, this one is for you!


Pepperoni Chips

Pepperoni Chips


Ingredients
1 pack of turkey pepperonis (can be found in the deli section with the "fancy" lunch meats)

Directions
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Cover a baking sheet in foil (for easy clean up).  Then place the pepperonis on the sheet in rows.  It doesn't matter how close together they are, just as long as they are not touching.

Bake in the oven for 8 minutes.  Remove, and dab each pepperoni with a paper towel.  This removes some of the grease/oils.

Return to the oven to bake for another 16 minutes (I was told 8 minutes, but mine definitely took 16, and probably could've gone longer!).  When in doubt, I take one for the team and just stick my finger in the oven and touch one to see if they are done.  I do this when baking anything lol :)

Once they have shrunk in size and are visibly crispy, remove from the oven.  Dab each pepperoni with a paper towel, and enjoy!  They are great warm or at room temperature.
