I’ve got some pizza-lovers in my home (including myself!) and usually once a month, I like to create a delicious spin on pizza that my family can enjoy and snack on.

Who doesn’t love pizza? Bread, Cheese, Veggies/Meat and Sauce? So yum!

What I usually like to make and is not only quick and easy but super delicious are my Pizza Rolls.
Alas, I have discovered a new recipe for Pepperoni Pizza Puffs that is now a new favourite snack.

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs adapted from Everyday with Rachael Ray 

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • pinch of salt (my addition, optional)
  • pinch of red pepper flakes (my addition, optional)
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup cubed pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup store-bought pizza sauce

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, salt and red pepper flakes (if using) ; whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella, Parmesan and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.
2. Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.

NOTE: All my batter did not fit into the 24-mini muffin pan. So I made a full size muffin with the leftover batter. Some pans are larger than others so you may not have have an issue.
