Pizza Puffs

Since discovering Plain Chicken on Pinterest a few months ago, I have been finding more and more of their recipes that I would like to try.  This is one of them…I made these for supper one night with pizza sauce for dipping and a fresh salad on the side.  Mm, mmmm, yummy!

There was enough left over for lunch the next day and they were even great reheated.  Plain Chicken makes hers in a mini muffin pan and I used a regular one.  If you use a regular one also, add about 3-4 minutes of extra baking time.

pizza puffs

3/4 cup all purpose flour

3/4 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

3/4 cup milk

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 pound Italian sausage

1/2 cup diced green peppers

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

pizza sauce


Cook the sausage, green pepper, and onion in a skillet over medium heat until the sausage is completely cooked.  Drain on a paper towel lined plate and cool completely.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Grease a muffin pan.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and garlic powder.


Whisk in the milk and egg.  Stir in the cheese and sausage mixture.  Let stand for 10 minutes.


Stir the batter and divide it among the muffin cups.  I was able to get 10 regular sized puffs.  Bake until puffed and golden about 20-25 minutes.  Warm the pizza sauce in the microwave for dipping.
