Pepperoni Pizza Puffs
What a fun and super easy dinner/lunch/party snack- whatever! Took me a whole 2 minutes to whip up the ingredients. The original recipe calls for sausage as well, however, I decided to keep it simple with just pepperoni. This recipe is awesome though because you can make your own little pizzas, so put whatever you like in there! I also do not own mini muffin pans, so I just used regular sized muffin pans and baked it for 20 minutes. Easy-peasy. I loved dipping them in pizza sauce too! So fun. I served these little puffs with a salad and wa-la! These are wonderful for kids and adults! Enjoy!
3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3/4 cup whole milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
4 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
2 oz mini turkey pepperoni, (about 1/2 cup)
4 oz low-fat sausage, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup pizza sauce
Pre-heat the oven to 375°. Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, garlic powder and baking powder; whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella, sausage and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.
Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.
Gluten free: Use GF flour, meat of choice, and pizza sauce.
