3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning (or combo of dried basil, oregano & parsley)
pinch of salt
pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
3/4 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup cubed pepperoni (I used Hormel's mini turkey pepperoni and skipped chopping)
1/2 cup store-bought pizza sauce, warmed in microwave or stovetop
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 and let stand for a few minutes.
Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
Serve the puffs with warmed pizza sauce for dipping.
