Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Mozzarella or Parmesan can be used in this recipe.


  1. Heat oven to 450°F. Line rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Dissolve yeast and brown sugar in warm water in the bowl of stand mixer. Let stand for 5 minutes or until foamy.
  3. Add 4 1/2 cups flour and salt; beat on low speed until mixture is combined. Add butter. Beat on medium speed until dough begins to pull away from sides of bowl. Add remaining flour, a tablespoon at a time, until a soft dough forms. Remove dough from bowl. Shape into a ball.
  4. Divide dough into 36 equal pieces; roll into balls. Flatten balls into disks. Place a diced pepperoni and a mozzarella cube into center of each; sprinkle with parmesan. Seal dough around filling; roll into balls.
  5. Bring water and baking soda to a boil in a Dutch oven over high heat, stirring occasionally. Drop balls, a few at a time, into boiling water. Boil for 30 seconds, submerging balls in boiling water. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.
  6. Place balls 1 inch apart on prepared pans; brush with egg. Sprinkle with salt. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Serve warm with marinara sauce.
