Pepperoni Pizza Puffs ( copy cat pizza rolls )

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

No need to stop by the grocery, these Pepperoni Pizza Puffs are better than the store-bought brand. The freezer aisle has nothing on this delicious take on Totino's Pizza Rolls. This homemade copycat recipe is crafted with pepperoni, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Surprise your kids with this delicious after school snack.

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs adapted from Everyday with Rachael Ray and Cassie Craves
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • pinch of salt (my addition, optional)
  • pinch of red pepper flakes (my addition, optional)
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup cubed pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup store-bought pizza sauce
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, salt and red pepper flakes (if using) ; whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella, Parmesan and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.
2. Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.
NOTE: All my batter did not fit into the 24-mini muffin pan. So I made a full size muffin with the leftover batter. Some pans are larger than others so you may not have have an issue.
