Pepperoni pizza puffs

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. 😉

  1. Perfect quick dinner for the Husband! I gotta try these…

  2. My husband would be thrilled if I served these with tomato sauce for dipping!

  3. Haha, I’m definitely trying this out for Darwin tomorrow! I think I’ll add a bit more to it though, like bacon bits and mushrooms and then top it off with a little jalapeno. 😀 Thanks for the recipe Kirbie!

    • Your additions sound delicious! I was going for really quick and what was available in my fridge. But next time I think I’ll add some stuff too

  4. I have a distinct feeling my BF would also really like these… they look like pizza muffins! Cute 🙂

    • Heehee, they did come out looking like little muffins. Part of it was because I put too much batter in each muffin tin, but I think they look better puffy than flat.

  5. This is SUCH a boyfriend food, I love it!! It’s like a grown-up Totino’s Pizza Rolls.

  6. My boyfriend has tried these and is seriously addicted.
