Lately I have been struggling with meals. It seems if I spend a lot of time in the kitchen making a more involved meal my boys will complain and not eat. After a couple months of this, I have come to the conclusion that I need to stick with quick, simple, easy to eat meals. My boys tend to eat them better and are much more excited about meal times. One meal I make often is homemade pizza. It is easy and well received. When I came across this pizza puffs recipe here, I knew this would be a big hit. It is so good I need to start making a double batch so we have some leftover.
3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
pinch of salt
pinch of red pepper flakes-optional
3/4 cup whole milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup cubed pepperoni
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 24-cup mini muffin pan. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, salt and red pepper flakes. Whisk in milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella cheese, Parmesan, and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.
2. Stir the batter and divide among the mini muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 - 25 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.
