Pepperoni Pizza Puffs!

Tip :

Freeze the baked puffs in a single layer on a baking sheet, then transfer to a freezer bag.

To reheat, bake the frozen puffs on a baking sheet in a 350° oven for 8 to 10 minutes.

What you need :

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 store-bought pizza sauce
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
1 red bell pepper, sliced


Preheat the oven to 375°.

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.
Meanwhile, microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through, then stir in 1 tablespoon basil. Sprinkle the puffs with the remaining 1 tablespoon basil.

Serve the puffs and red pepper slices with the pizza sauce for dipping.
