Pepperoni Pizza Puffs Oh My!!

When I saw these pepperoni-pizza-puffs/ - I knew I had to try them!!! Perfect for a quick snack when you have people over!!  I made them for lunch - served them straight out of the oven with some hot pizza sauce.  We had to stop ourselves from eating too many!!  And they are so cute too!! 

Had some leftover tomato sauce that I had made - it was perfect to serve with these little gems!!

Look at these up close - full of cheese and pepperoni.  Can't wait to make these again!!

Here's the recipe (my changes in red)

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs Recipe

(Adapted from Gimme Some Oven)

3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
3/4 cup milk (I used 1%)
1 egg, lightly beaten
4 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 1 cup) (I used Monterey Jack)
4 oz. pepperoni, diced (about 1 cup) (I used turkey pepperoni)
1/2 cup pizza sauce (homemade or store-bought)
2 Tbsp. fresh basil, finely diced. (didn't use any but will next time!)

Preheat oven to 375o. Grease a 24-cup mini muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and oregano; 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.

Warm the pizza 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.
