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 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.
