Wonton Pizza Crisps

Yesterday I was looking for a quick and easy snack.  I wasn't craving vegetables or hummus. I didn't want something sweet.  I wanted PIZZA.  Not the healthiest snack choice, I know, but everything in moderation, am I right?
Well I knew I wasn't hungry enough for an actual pizza pie but I still needed to get my pepperoni and cheesy fix.  That's when I spotted some leftover wonton wrappers in the fridge.  BINGO!!  Wonton Pizza Crisps. 
Wonton wrappers are awesome.  You can use them to make wontons (of course), raviolis, pierogies, mini-lasagnas, chips and crusts.  You can steam them, fry them, boil them and bake them.  What can't wonton wrappers do?
The wonton wrappers make a perfect "thin crust" for this pizza snack. I mixed the shredded mozzarella with some Italian seasoning to heighten the pizza flavor.  AND... who can have pizza without pepperoni??  Not me!  I ended up with crispy, melty and spicy bites that satisfied my pizza cravings.

Makes 12 crisps

  • 12 wonton wrappers
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 12 pepperoni slices
  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Coat a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange wonton wrappers on sheet, making sure the wrappers don't touch. Spray wonton wrappers with a coating of non-sticking cooking spray.
  3. In a small bowl, combine cheese and seasoning.  Sprinkle cheese over the wonton wrappers.  Place pepperoni slices on each wrapper.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until wontons are crispy and cheese is melted and golden.  Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.  Enjoy!

  4. Im making these for my hubby's birthday! They are easy to prepare and look delish! Thanks for sharing!

  5. were these really hard or chewy?

  6. So I just did the calculations for the ones I made...I cut the large wontons into fourths so it made 12 crisps at only 400 calories! Yay

  7. Wonton wrappers make great noodles too for a quick soup-just cut in the thickness you want.

  8. Found this on "The Pin" - thanks for reminding me of something my mom used to to do with wrappers. Totally forgot about her "inventions". Lovely memory.

  9. These are a family favorite! My kiddos requested these crisps for our annual “Christmas Eve Snack Night”!!
