3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
Pinch of salt
Pinch of red pepper flakes
3/4 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup diced pepperoni
1/2 cup store-bought pizza sauce
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 the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella, Parmesan and pepperoni. Let mixture stand for 10 minutes. Stir the batter then divide it among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through and serve with the puffs for dipping.
These are a big hit at our house. I usually double the batch and I never have leftovers. Although they are meant to be an appetizer, I often make them for dinner because they're such a kid friendly meal. I haven't tried it yet, but I think these would be great with sausage too.

This is a Rachael Ray recipe, but I found it over at Lick the Bowl Good.
