Pizza Puffs


Thanks to everyone who entered the Hamburger Helper Giveaway.  The winner is Julie from The Sporadic Cook!  Send me your mailing info Julie to krystalsrecipes (at) gmail (dot) com  and that package will be on it's way.
When I saw this during a blog hopping evening, (don't you all spend your evening blog-hopping?) I knew they were something our family would love.  The original recipe used mini pepperonis, but I used what I had on hand.  It came together so quickly! I used my cookie scoop to make sure there was equal amounts in each muffin compartment, and it made making these even easier.

Originally from: Gimme Some Oven
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped olives
  • about 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • about 1 cup pepperoni, diced
  • pizza sauce, for dipping

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 24-cup mini muffin pan. Lightly sprinkle with cornmeal, if desired. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder; stir in the milk and egg. Stir in the cheese, olives, and pepperoni; let stand for 10minutes. Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, about 25 minutes.  Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.

  1. These are too cool, Krystal! My son would love it. In fact, I'm going to show this post to him. He has a birthday sleepover coming up and hasn't decided what he wants for supper w/ his friends that night. Thanks for sharing!

  2. My daughter would love these. When I made some savory puffs before I think it was spinach, tomato and cheddar. Not as kid friendly as these...of course with enough garlic I would like these too!

  3. What a clever twist on pizza! My kids would (I mean, WILL) love these!

  4. Thanks for linking up to my party! I will have to try these out when my kids are actually healthy enough to eat real food!

  5. Oh yum! The kids would love these and I would too! Link them up over at Tailgating Time too if you'd like - they are perfect! :-)

  6. I have a similar recipe and we really love them! I've never thought of using a cookie scoop to get them in the pan, though. That's a great tip! :)

  7. Thanks for linking these beauties up to Tailgating Time today :-)

  8. These look so tasty! I would love them!
