Move the rack to the center of your oven and turn the broiler on high. Place these under the broiler for 3-5 mins depending on your oven. Watch them closely. You want the cheese to melt and get bubbly.

Remove the Pepperoni Pizza Poppers from the oven but leave them in the pan for about 2 minutes. This helps the pepperoni set.
