Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

>> Wednesday, July 27, 2011


This was probably the most popular dish at Finley's birthday party and for good reason! These little puppies were delicious and so easy to make too! They're best fresh out of the oven but they're still pretty tasty when reheated. I'll definitely be making these again soon!


Pepperoni Pizza Puffs
adapted from Noble Pig

1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 cups whole milk
2 eggs
6 oz pepperoni slices, cut into quarters
8 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup parmesan, grated
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped (optional)
pizza sauce, for serving (optional)
ranch dressing, for serving (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease two 24-cup mini muffin tin. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Whisk in milk and eggs until just combined. Fold in pepperoni, mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Stir the batter and divide evenly between the two mini-muffin pans. Bake until puffed and golden, about 20 to 25 minutes. Garnish with fresh basil, if desired. Serve with warmed pizza sauce and/or ranch dressing.

*This makes 48 pizza puffs, so if you're not serving a crowd, you'll want to half the recipe.

How did you reheat the puffs? I am going to make these on Sunday for a party. Going to search your desserts for recipes too. Thanks!

Hi Leslie! To reheat them, I just placed them all on a cookie sheet and baked them at 375 for about 10-15 minutes or until they were good and hot. Hope that helps!
