Pepperoni Pizza Puffs in a stack


This is a great change from every day pizza!  We love pizza in our house including grilled pizza, Pizza Pasta Salad or even a cheesy Pizza Pasta Bake!

These pizza puffs are not only delicious, they’re quick and easy to whip up!  The texture is nice and fluffy with a cheesy flavor!

I added red pepper and pepperoni but you can definitely add in your favorite toppings.  If you add in extra veggies (such as mushrooms) with a high water content, be sure to cook them first.

Be sure to grease your pan VERY well, or they will stick!  To release them from the pan, run a butter knife around the edges of each puff and gently lift them out!

  1. Love the recipes for kids keep them coming. I have a nine-year-old granddaughter and a 11-year-old grandson and both are in the kitchen cooking with me. Does your recipe book have the kids recipes included?5 stars

    1. My book doesn’t have recipes specifically designed for kids however some of the recipes are easy enough for kids to be able to make with a little bit of guidance.

  2. These Pizza Puffs were super easy to make and delicious!! I tripled the recipe so I would have some for a few days. I love them and so did my kids. I’ll be making them again very very soon!! Going to try different cheeses and dipping sauces. Thank you for sharing this recipe5 stars

    1. I would love to hear how the different cheeses turn out Danielle! I am so glad you enjoyed this recipe!

  3. These sound amazing and so easy to make! I’m considering making these in MINI muffin cups with gluten free 1:1 flour.
    How long would you bake them in the mini form?

    1. I haven’t tried it so I can’t say for sure, but I would begin checking them around 10 minutes. If you try it I would love to hear how it turns out!

  4. Love this idea & I’ve pinned for my daughters up-coming Sweet 16. Do you think they would be ok sitting in a “catering pan” over a sterno? We’re doing a lot of one/two bite foods, as the kids probably won’t sit for a meal, and I’m hoping these will be a great addition to the menu.
