Sausage & Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

 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.
