Pepperoni or Sausage Pizza Puffs

Pepperoni or Sausage Pizza Puffs

My three boys love pepperoni pizza. I rarely buy frozen pizza, but make my own homemade. I make the dough from scratch, make my own pizza sauce and even my own pizza sausage from ground pork. So making a pizza isn’t one of those last minute meals, it has to be planned. However, I found these little pizza snacks that are pretty quick and a great snacking replacement!

One day while perusing through Stumble Upon, I came upon Cathy’s post for these little gems over at her blog, Noble Pig. I had bookmarked the recipe and forgotten all about. That is until one day I had to bring something to a get together at a friend’s house. I started going through my bookmarks and came across these little pizza puffs.


I followed Cathy’s recipe, but did add some sausage in some of mine and used my homemade pizza sauce as the dipping sauce. I also left out the fresh basil as my kids would have thought that was gross. :-P They were a huge hit and I keep the recipe in my permanent recipe binder now.

  1. Preheat oven to 375 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 and/or sausage; 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. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.

    The only problem with these is how incredibly easy they are to eat! We love Cathy's blog, too, and this recipe was a huge hit.

    These look delicious. I have to try the,. I do a different pizza puff made with won tons wrappers in my new book, but these also look yummy. (PS pizza can be a last minute meal if it's stashed in the freezer).

    I make pizza pancakes which is similar to this. Baking mix, milk, egg (like you would for pancakes) mix in italian seasoning, shredded moz cheese, chopped pepperoni, and precooked sausage finely crumbled. Cook just like a pancake. When done, cut into wedges and dip into warmed pizza sauce.

    OK…these look lovely! But the real question is…are you going to share your sauce recipe?!?!? :-)
