Ingredients

  • ¾

    cup flour

  • ¾

    teaspoon baking powder

  • ¾

    cup whole milk

  • 1

    egg, lightly beaten

  • 4

    ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)

  • 4

    ounces pepperoni, cut into small cubes (about 1 cup)

  • ½

    cup store-bought pizza sauce

  • 2

    tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil

  • 1

    red bell pepper, sliced

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375°. Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder; whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella 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, then stir in 1 tablespoon basil. Sprinkle the puffs with the remaining 1 tablespoon basil. Serve the puffs and red pepper slices with the pizza sauce for dipping. TIP: Freeze the baked puffs in a single layer on a baking sheet, then transfer to a freezer bag. To reheat, bake the frozen puffs on a baking sheet in a 350° oven for 8 to 10 minutes.
