You asked for more easy snacks – so here you are – super easy pepperoni bites. These can be eaten as a snack, covered in a sauce for a meal. And you know I love recipes that can be frozen and kept for school lunches too.

When ground/mince meat is on sale, you need to buy up large. Turn the oven on and by the time the oven is up to temperature, you’ll have these pepperoni bites prepared, ready to cook. Furthermore, make a double or triple batch and once they are cooled, pop any spare leftovers into an airtight container with layers of baking parchment in between each layer of pepperoni bites.

When you want a quick snack or want to plan your school lunches, you can easily defrost the pepperoni bites. Heck, you can even place them frozen in the school lunch box and in summer, they will be defrosted by lunch time, with the added bonus of keeping the rest of the lunch box cool.

Want to lose weight and get healthy for life—without dieting, drugs, or making yourself miserable?We can help! Tell me how!


  • 500 g ground/minced beef
  • 100 g pepperoni finely diced
  • +/- salt and pepper to taste


  • In a bowl, mix the ground/mince meat, pepperoni, salt and pepper.
  • Squeeze small balls of the meat mixture together. I find this technique works better than rolling them. The meat binds together firmly.
  • Place on an oiled baking tray, or line with non stick parchment.
  • Bake at 180C/350F for 10-15 minutes.
  • They may need turning once during cooking so the pepperoni bites brown evenly on all sides.


Any ground/mince beef, pork or turkey would work in this recipe.

  1. i want to halve or quarter the cooked balls and use for pizza toppings. Yum

  2. Yum, yum! I remember when I first started making meatballs and meatloaf with no eggs and no crumbs of anything. I’m like, “Huh! Who knew?” Pepperoni meatballs sounds delicious! Thanks! Terri

    Hi I’m new to this lchf diet. I’ve already tried alot of the receipts, especially the fat bombs. I’m looking forward in making the crackers and oopsies. Can you please tell me, the ingredient psyllium husk seeds, to which I need to get in health shop. They do this in powder form. What sort of form in psyllium husk do I need for these receipts. Thank you x

    Yummy and yes, super-easy! Thank you so much, Libby!

    And I found they rolled fine, but maybe that was just the meat I was using! 🙂

  5. T. Bastress says:

    These are fabulous! I made them last night and everyone loved them! Thanks!

    1. I buy the ones that have the highest % of meat (try to get it 95% or above) and with minimal processing or fillers. The carb content will indicate how much other “stuff” is in there.

  6. Quick, easy, simple and very tasty! Loving the look of your lunchbox ideas, I’m making a bunch to keep in the freezer, thanks!

  7. Rebecca Lacy says:

    Can you cook them in an airfryer? If so what temperature and how long ?

  8. I just wanted to say a big thank you Libby. I have found your website a fantastic help since quitting sugar and grain two months ago.
    I made these pepperoni meatballs a few times, and last night I added sliced olives and sundried tomato aswell and wrapped the mixture around a cube of cheese. The pizza balls were a big hit.
