Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

I've been wandering around different food blogs and jotting down recipes that sound good to try.  I happened upon this great recipe from Cassie Craves so I decided to try these pepperoni pizza puffs today from her blog and they really really easy and so delicious.  Also the you can use this batter and really add any of your favorite fillings to change them up.  I think next time I might try spinach and cheedar cheese....YUM!  I made a slight change to the recipe just to lighten it up a little bit but it still tasted totally delicious.

**Nanci just came over and loved them so now we are trying to come up with a new concoction to use with this batter.  Stay tuned.......

Pizza Puffs


3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon pizza seasoning
3/4 cup whole milk (I used 3/4 cup of skim milk instead)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 package mini pepperoni rounds (or 1 cup cubed pepperoni)
1/2 cup store-bought pizza sauce


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and pizza seasoning; whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella, parmesan and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes. Scoop batter into greased mini-muffin tins and bake for 20 minutes or until they are golden brown.

Variation - Bacon Corn Cheddar Puffs
(omit pizza seasoning, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni)
Add 1 cup of frozen corn, 1 cup of bacon bits (I used immitation bacon bits) and 1 cup of cheddar cheese

Variation - Tri colored pepper and mushroom puffs
Saute red, yellow, green peppers and mushrooms in a litlte olive oil add salt and pepper to taste.  Add 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese.
