Pepperoni Pizza Puffs - Tailgaiting for #SundaySupper

I've got to be honest.  I am not a football fan.  I don't understand it, can't follow it and usually have no clue who is in the Super Bowl.  But....ask me to cook for the big game and I'm there!~

Everyone loves pizza for a party.  These little pepperoni puffs make a great appetizer.  They have a crispy crust and are loaded with pepperoni!  Just add your favorite pizza or marinara sauce.



Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp. oregano or Italian seasoning
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of red pepper flakes(optional)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded 4 cheese Italian Blend cheese (mozzarella, provolone, Parmesan and romano)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • 1 cup cubed pepperoni
  • Pizza or marinara sauce, warmed
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Grease a 24-cup mini muffin pan.  In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, oregano, salt and red pepper flakes;  whisk in the milk and egg.  Stir in the mozzarella, Parmesan and pepperoni.  Let stand for 5 minutes.  Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups (about 1 heaping Tbsp.).  Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
Serve with warmed marinara sauce for dipping.
Makes 24 - recipe can be doubled.

This week's #SundaySupper is being hosted by Isabel @ Family Foodie and Lane @ Supper for a Steal.  These girls sure know how to throw a party!  With all this food, everyone will be passed out at half time!

Winning or losing, watching football is always better with a tailgate party. Hosting a big viewing party at home or setting up camp outside the stadium. These recipes are sure to get you in the mood for the big game.
