Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

I had pepperoni pizza puffs on my mind lately. I’ve made them before, but wanted to make them a little more pizza-like.

These are a tasty little bread treat that are super easy to make. The pepperoni and cheese gives them the flavors pizza, especially when you dip it in a side of marinara sauce. To make them taste even more like a pizza, I sprinkled some Italian seasoning on them this time.

I love making this appetizer when I’m short on time. Yum!

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs


3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
1 cup shredded cheese (I used cheddar and monterey jack)
1/3 cup pepperoni, chopped into small pieces
Italian seasoning
marinara sauce for dipping


1. Grease a mini muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, milk, egg until batter is lump free. Stir in cheese and pepperoni bites Spoon batter into the prepared mini-muffin cups about 2/3 full. Sprinkle Italian seasoning on top.

3. Bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees for 15-17 minutes. Serve while warm with a side of marinara sauce for dipping.

  1. These are absolutely adorable! They sound like they would be easy to adapt with different add-ins and flavours too. I’m bookmarking this recipe for the next party/potluck I go to – I have a feeling if I made them for myself for dinner I wouldn’t be able to stop myself from eating the whole batch!

    • They are really versatile. I’ve done different cheese and different meat fillings, though pepperoni and cheese is my favorite combination.

  2. Love this recipe! I did bacon, cheddar, onion puffs with chives. They were awesome! Thanks! Dipped them in ketchup, they didn’t last more than 10 minutes in front of my fam.

  3. These sound delicious!! Im definitely saving these although if i had a warm batch in front of me i fear for my self control… 🙂

  4. As you discovered, your puffs were so yummy looking I couldn’t help but make them myself IMMEDIATELY! Your pictures are better than mine though 🙁

    Anyway, I can’t wait to try different variations. Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. I have to try this!!! My boyf and me have fallen in love with it when we have seen it!!
    Thanks for a new minimuffin pan recipe!!

  6. I love making these, especially for appetizer night. The last time I made them I used bacon instead of pepperoni (I had forgotten to purchase it). They, of course, still tasted awesome.

  7. yay! another easy and fun recipe! in fact, i think i will recruit TC and her friends to do this. they can double the recipe and use all of my mini muffin tin sets! 🙂

  8. How many does this recipe yield?? Trying to decide if I should double it or not

  9. I made these but I used ham, pineapple, pepper jack cheese and unflavoured almond milk (that is what I had). I also used regular sized muffin tins. My husband and I both thought they were delicious!

  10. I am always looking for easy quick snacks to make for poker parties. I can’t wait to try these.
