With little ones around, I am always on the lookout for kid-friendly recipes. By kid-friendly, for me, that means:
· appealing to them
· little mess
· easy for them to eat
As soon as I saw the Sausage & Pepperoni Pizza Puffs, I was sure they would be perfect! They loved them and I had little cleanup. Perfect!
Sausage & Pepperoni Pizza Puffs
3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3/4 cup whole milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
4 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
2 oz mini turkey pepperoni, (about 1/2 cup)
4 oz low-fat sausage, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup pizza sauce
Pre-heat your oven to 375°. Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, garlic powder and baking powder; whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella, sausage and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.
Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.
