These adorable pizza puffs are fun party appetizers and also make a great lunch for kids. Much like making any other muffin recipe, you simply combine all the ingredients in a bowl, spoon into muffin cups and bake. Serve with warmed pizza sauce (I used this one and omitted the Parmesan cheese).
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups shredded mozarella cheese
- 1 cup diced pepperoni (optional)
- 1 cup diced mushrooms
- 1 cup diced black olives
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- pizza sauce for serving
Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan.
In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Add the milk and eggs and mix well. Add the additional toppings and spices and stir to combine. Let rest for 10 minutes.
Pour the batter into the prepared muffins cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 27-30 minutes. Let cool and remove from the pan.
Serve the pizza puffs warm with heated pizza sauce for dipping.
