Crispy Baked Pizza Rolls

Its not a common pizza slice but the crispy baked pizza rolls from Yestoyum is one of the great ideas to serve pizza differently in a parties. This could also be a great snack for kids bringing food to school.

3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup pepperonis, cut into quarters (or mini pepperonis)
1/2 teaspoon garlic
3 cups (about 1 lb.) ground beef or sausage
1 cup pizza sauce
1 package wonton wrappers (48 ct.)

Brown ground beef or sausage in a skillet over medium heat. Drain and cool.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Combine all of the ingredients excluding the wonton wrappers in a medium bowl and stir until combined.
Scoop a small spoonful of filling onto the wonton wrapper (see notes in post) and outline half the wonton edge with water using either your fingers or a basting brush. Fold the top half over the filling and press onto the side that you put water on to form a seal. Fold each corner of the "triangle" in so the edges don't burn. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and repeat process until all wonton wrappers are used.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until tops are slightly golden and crisp. Serve immediately.
Store leftovers in an airtight container and reheat in oven.
