Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

I’m always spilling stuff on my shirt. This seems to be a great way to shovel piles of pizza into your face with minimal spills.    


3/4 cup flour

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 cup milk (I used 1 %)

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded

4 ounces pepperoni (I used Turkey pepperoni), cut into small cubes

1/2 – 1 cup of your favorite pizza or marinara sauce

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 24-cup mini muffin pan.

In a large owl, whisk together the flour and baking powder; whisk in the milk, egg, salt and Italian seasoning. Stir in the mozzarella 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.

Warm your pizza or marinara sauce, then stir in 1 tablespoon basil. Sprinkle the puffs with the remaining 1 tablespoon basil. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.
