A few days ago, I was looking for a weekend lunch recipe for the kids. I wanted to use up the turkey pepperoni we had in the frig, but I didn’t feel like making pizza dough. Then, I remembered a recipe I found on the Noble Pig Blog for Pepperoni Pizza Puffs. This recipe was just what I was looking for. Not only is this a quick and easy recipe, it’s also kid approved.
How to make Pepperoni Pizza Puffs
This is what I initially whipped up. I added some Italian dried seasoning (1/8-1/4tsp) to the second batch and it definitely added some extra flavor to the the pizza puffs.
This recipe makes a small batch and I had to double the recipe in order to fill all 24 cups of my mini muffin pan.
It bakes up crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. If your family is anything like mines, you may want to triple the recipe
