Pizza in a Cup!

Published April 1, 2012 by jenmatteson

This is one of those recipes that I make but don’t eat, but according to how fast they fly off the plate, I’m guessing it’s a keeper.  I made these as a snack while we helped our good friends (newly engaged good friends!!) move into their beautiful new home.  I suppose saying “good” friends and  helping them move in the same sentence is unnecessary and overkill.  It’s a given, right?  I let Nate sample one on Friday night to make sure they were good; he wouldn’t stop talking about them all day on Saturday.  They were a perfect snack after a long day of hard work.  I just popped them in the oven to heat up for a few minutes, and viola!

These pizza puffs couldn’t have been much easier to make, and finally made me purchase a mini muffin tin; at last!  I came across these gems from a fellow nestie on The Way to His Heart…(and isn’t that so true?) and minimally adapted the original recipe by using skim milk instead of whole milk, and using a blend of dried herbs rather than an Italian seasoning.  The recipe made about 32 puffs, but I think I’ll double it the next time I make it.

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

Source: The Way to His Heart…


3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup skim milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 cup mini pepperoni
1/2 cup marinara sauce


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease mini muffin pan.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, oregano, rosemary, basil, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and salt.  Whisk in milk and egg.  Stir in cheese and pepperoni and let sit for 10 minutes.

3. Give batter one more stir, and spoon into muffin cups.  I used a tablespoon, which seemed to be a perfect measurement.  Bake for 20-23 minutes, or until tops are puffed and begin to turn brown.  Serve warm with marinara sauce for dipping.
