Pepperoni Pizza Bites

This is yet another Pinterest find and I couldn't wait to try them.


They're an adaptation from a Rachael Ray recipe and oh my they turned out so yummy!

I'm all about sharing, so check out the recipe below.





Ingredients:

3/4 c. flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
pinch of salt (optional)
pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
3/4 c. whole milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 c. shredded Mozzarella cheese**
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1 c. cubed pepperoni
1/2 c. pizza sauce

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a mini muffin pan**. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, salt and red pepper flakes. Then whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in pepperoni and cheeses; let stand for 10 minutes.

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

3. Meanwhile, microwave the pizza sauce and serve as a dipping sauce.**

**I didn't have Mozzarella, so I substituted Jalapeno cheddar. It was delicious and had a little kick to it.
**We don't own a mini muffin pan, so I used a regular size and it made 12 puffs. Worked out perfect!
**Also, I kept the sauce cold. I like the way it contrasted with the hot puffs.
