Second, wash the tomatoes, remove stems, cut off tops and discard. Remove the seeds and ribs from the tomatoes with a paring knife. Third, give the tomatoes a quick pat dry with a paper towel.

Next, measure, and mix your spices until uniform. After that, dice your onions and pepperoni. Shred your mozzarella.

Following that, stuff each tomato with a layer of onion, pepperoni, spice mixture, and cheese. You should be able to repeat this sequence at least twice. You may have to use your finger to compress the cheese.

Then you’ll want to fill the tomatoes until they have a mound of filling above the rim. Some shrinkage will occur so fill them full and then some. If you wish your tomatoes to be saucier, you can add a bit of marinara sauce.

At this point, place the tomatoes in a muffin tin or stand them up in the corners of a baking dish. Coating the dish or tin with oil will make the tomatoes easier to remove.

Finally, bake under the broiler for 5-8 minutes until the cheese and tomatoes begin to brown a little. Lastly, carefully remove them from the baking dish, I use tongs and a serving spoon and serve warm.
