Way too much time on my hands!

Wanna tweak this? Pizza balls
3 cans Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits (10 ct)
60 pepperoni slices (2 per biscuit)
Block of cheese (Colby/Monterey Jack or Chedder)
1 beaten egg
1 jar pizza sauce
Slice cheese into approx. 28 squares. Flatten each biscuit and stack pepperoni and cheese on top. Gather edges of biscuit and secure on top of the roll. Line rolls in greased 9x13 pan Brush with beaten egg. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Bake at 425 degrees F. for 18 to 20 mins. Serve with warm pizza sauce for dipping.
First, I'd use mozzarella instead of the colby/cheddar.
Instead of the biscuits, I'd use Cleo's pizza crust or a tweaked version of almond flour/parmesan crackers, which would make it kind of like a totino's pizza roll--- kinda crunchy.
(the crackers are just a cup of almond flour, 1/2 cup of something else----parmesan or a mix of parmesan and flax, might include 1 tbl or so of coconut flour into the 1/2 cup count. then add a beaten egg, 2 tbl oil, and then a tsp salt either in the dough or scattered on top after they are rolled out and scored, or both.... 350 for 15 min for thin, about 18-20 min for thicker).
Anyway, my idea would be to improve the cracker recipe by adding garlic and italian herbs. olive oil. IT's possible that a tbl or 2 of heavy cream would make it breadier and less crackerish. also, putting a thin layer of the pizza sauce onto the inside of the cracker 'dumpling' might improve moisture, as would using an egg wash after the whole mess is assembled.
I've been sort of wanting pizza lately, so I might make it, but I wanted to share the idea in case anyone felt like playing with food.
Keep calm and carry on.

You might want to try these. I make them in my cake pop maker.I change things alittle and add coconut flour. They make the perfect healthy pizza bite. Yum.
