You go to a lot of trouble when you host a party for neighbors, close friends or big-time sports fans. But when it comes to easy finger food recipes, you don’t need to feel much pressure. Sure, you need to worry about the invites, music, indoor or outdoor furniture arrangements and more. That’s the hard part. Take a load off and follow a few easy finger food recipes. Your guests will appreciate everything that you serve.

  • 1 package (15 count) Athens® Phyllo Shells
  • 15 slices of pizza pepperoni
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 3/4 cup finely shredded mozzarella
  • 5 ounces pizza dough (1/2 tube)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning


Place the shells on an ungreased baking sheet. Press one slice of pepperoni into each shell. Evenly distribute the pizza sauce among the shells followed by the cheese.
Roll out the pizza dough to the approximate size of the shell tray. With a small, round cookie cutter that is approximately the size of the shell, cut out 15 pieces. Place each piece of dough on top of the filling.
Sprinkle the shells with the seasoning and bake for 8-10-minutes in a preheated oven at 350°F. Serve immediately.
Tips: Create a vegetarian version using your favorite vegetable toppings instead of pepperoni.
Top with a dollop of sauce and garnish with strips of pepperoni.
