Pesto Mozzarella Bombs


  • 16 ounces store-bought biscuit dough
  • 4 ounces mozzarella, cut into ½” cubes (you will need 16 cubes total)
  • 2 ounces pesto of choice
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 garlic clove, minced or crushed
  • ½ tbsp fresh parsley, minced
  • Grated parmesan to serve
  • Jersey Italian Gravy Classic Recipe to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease a 9” springform pan.
  2. Place an oven safe ramekin into the center of the greased pan. This is what your dough will bake around.
  3. Open the store bought biscuit dough and split each biscuit in half. You should have about 16 halves total.
  4. Place a small dollop of pesto into the center of each biscuit half, followed with one cube of mozzarella. Carefully fold the edges of the dough together to form a ball. Place seam side down into the grease pan. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
  5. Mix together the melted butter, garlic, and fresh parsley. Brush the mixture evenly over the dough balls.
  6. Bake for about 30-35 minutes until golden brown and the cheese is beginning to ooze out.
  7. Carefully unlock the springform pan to remove to serve.
  8. Serve with Jersey Italian Gravy Classic Marinara. Optional to warm the sauce if desired.
  9. Top with a sprinkle of grated parmesan cheese and enjoy!
