Kitchen Tip: Pepperoni on Pizza

If your like my family our favorite part of pepperoni pizza is the extra crispy pieces. Whenever we order pizza its a fight for those slices that have the extra crispy one on them. Cook's Country magazine talked about how to make those extra crispy pepperoni's on homemade pizza and it's worked well for us. Now every piece of homemade pizza has several pieces of the much loved pepperoni and an added bonus doing this removes some of the fat from the pepperoni. It's simple and takes just a minute to do this.
Place a doubled paper towel on a plate. Add pepperoni to the paper towel to cover the plate or as many pieces as you think you will need. Add another doubled paper towel to the top. Place in microwave for about 1 minute. Now you can use the pepperoni on your pizza and it's minus some of the fat and already started to crisp up.

  1. This is a great tip. I've seen some recipes fry pepperoni to crisp it up but that just gross to me.

  2. Fantastic tip! I'm getting tired of using 25 napkins to mop up the oil after the pizza has baked ~

  5. Thanks for posting! I am about to make some pizzas and am always disappointed when the pepperoni isn't crispy, but I wouldn't have thought to microwave it. Great tip :-)
