Recipe: Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

I’ve been seeing these little gems floating around Pinterest for a while now and I finally got around to trying them.  I didn’t expect much, I’m not much of a muffin person, but these were so incredible.  They were very moist, and packed with huge flavors!  I wish I’d doubled the recipe.  I saved what few we didn’t gobble in the fridge and warmed them in the microwave the next morning and they were still wonderful.


  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 cup pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce (to serve with Pizza Puffs)


  • Preheat the oven to 375.
  • Grease 24-cup mini-muffin pan.In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, and salt.
  • Whisk in the milk and egg. Stack slices of pepperoni and cut into small pieces.
  • Stir in mozzarella, Parmesan, and pepperoni. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups.
  • Bake until puffy and golden, about 20-25 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the pizza sauce until warmed through. Serve the sauce with the Pizza Puffs for dipping.
