Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

 

Pizza Bites

We’re a month past Christmas and not quite to Valentine’s day…so what’s there to celebrate? Well…football of course! The Superbowl is coming up quick so if you’re anything like me, you’re scavenging the internet for easy to make appetizers for ‘the big game’. These pizza puffs were a part of my ‘mini-food’ for the baby shower (more of that food is still to come) but they are probably more fitting for a football Sunday.

Since I don’t eat pepperoni, I left the taste-testing to the party-goers at the baby shower and the pizza expert himself–my husband…and they definitely passed the test. Pizza in one bite? Who wouldn’t like it?

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

Ingerdients

3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup whole milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
4 ounces pepperoni, cut into small cubes (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped finely

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease a 24-cup mini muffin pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder; whisk in the milk and egg. 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.

Microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through, then stir in 1 Tablespoon basil. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.
