Using same cutter, make hats: Cut 1/2-inch football-shape piece away from right side of each slice of pepperoni. Using paring knife, cut 1/4 inch from bottom of each slice of pepperoni. Reserve remaining cheese and pepperoni for another use, or discard.

Expert Tips

  • If cutting the pepperoni into a Santa hat shape seems too difficult, cut pepperoni into small triangles instead.
  • A serrated knife is the best choice for cutting the raw dough, but a very sharp chef’s knife will also work.
