1/4 tsp black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1/8 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
8 small chunks of fresh mozzarella
Mix all the above ingredients (except the fresh mozzarella) together until combined.
Roll into a ball and make a hole for a small chunk of fresh mozzarella.
Form into a ball around the fresh mozzarella. Makes approximately eight.
