Pepperoni Pastries – two ingredients to a delightful canape that is sure to delight your family and friends!

I adore simple recipes, and this one is no exception. Let’s face it, it doesn’t get much more simple than this.

Although simple, Pepperoni Pastries do not lack on flavour! They are a taste explosion. Make them your own – I also like to serve my Pepperoni Pastries with a dollop of basil pesto, or a sprinkle or parmesan cheese.

They are fantastic for entertaining and are great made in advance or at the last minute. You can enjoy the Pepperoni Pastries straight from the oven, or once they have cooled down.

This is the second of three recipes that I have written for Erica from Bring Your Own Kombucha. If you saw my post yesterday, you would have read about my excitement at collaborating with her for a series of recipes perfect for the American Football season. (Or any other celebration or entertaining occasion too, of course!) πŸ™‚

I wanted to create a quick savoury bite that takes minutes to create, which is why I am so excited to share this recipe with you.

Please let me know what you think of these tasty morsels in the comments! If you missed my post yesterday, you can check it out here: Caramel Fudge

  • 140 g salami or pepperoni
  • 180 g butter puff pastry I used one sheet of Pampas


  1. Preheat your oven to 220 Degrees C (430 F)

  2. Using a cookie or pastry cutter, cut small rounds of pastry out – the size may depend on the size of the pepperoni/salami you are using. 

    For this recipe, I used a 5cm cutter. It yields approximately 20 pastries from one sheet of puff pastry.

    Prick the pastry a couple of times with a fork.

  3. Slice your salami into thin slices. 

  4. Top pastry with salami.

  5. Bake for 10 minutes. Place on a cooling rack if not serving immediately, otherwise – enjoy! 

Recipe Notes

– I used one sheet of Pampas Butter Puff Pastry for this recipe

– Would also be delicious with a dollop of basil pesto on top!

– Are lovely cold, as well as straight from the ovenΒ

    As an Italian, I always have a question that I blend in my head because you call “Pepperoni” this sort of … meat? Sausage? In Italian “peperoni” means “sweer pepper” and it makes me strange to read this word each time instead of meat xD

  14. I do love pepperoni and this sounds like such a unique idea of something different to do with them! I would love to try one myself, I’ll have to try and cook some up.

  15. 5 stars

  17. 1. I love easy to make treats; 2. I love pepperoni on almost anything pastry or sandwich related πŸ˜€ These look so delicious and cute!

  18. These would be a perfect treat for my daughter who is a pepperoni nut! What a grand surprise to put these on the table before dinner is served. I’m going to pin it to make later.

  19. This looks amazing and delicious. Recipe looks easy and doable. I would love to try these at home.

    It’s always nice when you can have fast recipes for last minute moments especially when guests just show up at the door. And the pastries look just yummy!

  21. 5 stars
    Oh my gosh! I never thought of using pepperoni on pastries! But why not huh? This is a good idea. But I think I would rather chop them and mix em with the filling. So excited. Wanna make these!

    1. Thank you so much for the feedback. This such a simple recipe, just 2 ingredients, so there’s no filling but do let me know if you make them. They are delicious. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
