Turkey Pepperoni & Sausage Pizza Puffs

So yesterday was Super Bowl Sunday! I’m still in disbelief that it’s already February. Where has the time gone?!  We decided to just do some snack type foods for the big game.  So we had some of our favorite appetizer foods:  Chicken FingersPotato Skins and Chips & Dip! We also added a new kid to the block and tried something new:  Turkey Pepperoni & Sausage Pizza Puffs! I found the recipe on Pinterest and I thought they looked delicious! We ended the night with some Mini Cupcakes – just how I like it! 🙂

(Recipe from Plain Chicken)


  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup whole milk (I used 2%)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 2 oz mini turkey pepperoni, (about 1/2 cup)
  • 4 oz low-fat sausage, cooked and crumbled (I used Turkey Sausage Crumbles)
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce


Preheat the oven to 375°. Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, garlic powder and baking powder; whisk in the milk and egg.

Stir in the mozzarella, sausage 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. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.

I thought these were so good! They were kind of a pain to get out of the mini muffin pan, and I even greased the pan very good before putting the batter in there. I just had to run a knife around the edges of each of them. No big deal though. Otherwise these were so simple and easy to make. Next time I may try putting half of the shredded mozzarella cheese in the batter and then topping the puffs with the other half of the cheese after they bake for about 20 minutes.

It was a wonderful finger food for the big game!
