When I saw a recipe for pepperoni pizza puffs on the site The Family Table, I knew I had to make it for the BF. These puffs are so easy to make. Normally I’m too lazy to whip up much on the weekdays after a long day of work, but I was able to prepare these in just a few minutes and then pop them in the oven.
These pizza puffs taste just like mini pizza bites. The pepperoni bits adds a nice flavor. Next time I might put some more pepperoni pieces near the top of the batter to get a prettier puff.
The recipe calls for a marinara dipping sauce, but I decided to leave it out because I didn’t have any. The puffs taste great even without the sauce. BF loves these as I thought he would. Of course I had to make a big deal about how I had made this dish especially for him despite how tired I was, to rack up those extra brownie points. 😉
