Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

It's lunch time once again.

Meals are sooo. . . daily.  You know? 

I recently found this recipe in a Rachael Ray magazine and thought

it would be a perfect lunchtime option.pizzapic

So I tried it and. . . .

the kids loved 'em!


Thumbs up all around!

Here's the recipe which serves 4.  I doubled it.

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

3/4 C flour

3/4 tsp baking powder

3/4 C milk

1 egg

4 oz shredded mozzarella cheese

4 oz pepperoni, cut into small cubes ( I did not double this)

1/2 C pizza sauce

2 T finely chopped fresh basil

1.  Preheat the oven to 375, Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan or 12 regular 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. 

2.  Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups.  Bake until puffed and golden, 20-25 minutes.

3.  Meanwhile, heat the pizza sauce, then stir in 1 T basil.  Sprinkle the puffs with the remaining 1 T of basil.  Serve the puffs with pizza sauce for dipping.


Happy Wednesday,
