Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

These pepperoni pizza puffs are so stinking cute!  I think I love to eat them as much as the kids do!



I’m always looking for something fun and different to make the kids for lunch.  What is it about lunch?  It’s such a chore sometimes!  It can be so easy to get into a rut so I try to keep it fun, simple, and exciting.  These pepperoni pizza puffs sure hit the mark.  The kids love pizza and dipping, so it’s really not a stretch!  They also truly love anything in muffin form.  It is an odd phenomenon.  I can put pretty much anything into a muffin, especially a mini-muffin, and they will eat it.  I mean, I’ve made spinach muffins and you’d swear they were eating cake.

All you need is some Bisquick mix, a few seasonings, and your favorite pizza toppings stirred up with some milk and an egg.  After 15 minutes in the oven you’ll have a little pillow of cheesy goodness.  Give a girl some marinara to dip and call it lunch!  These pepperoni pizza puffs are really kind of magical. The batter is very liquid-y when you put them in the pan, to the point you may wonder if they’ll even turn out.  Rest assured, after a few minutes in the hot oven they will puff up! Then when you break one open and see those yummy strings of melty cheese?  Oh, so dreamy!

Obviously my little eater loved her pepperoni pizza puffs for lunch, but these aren’t just for lunch.  Pizza puffs would be fun to serve during a football game or at a party.  Of course you can change them up with your favorite pizza toppings, but ours is pepperoni!

Recipe Notes

Be sure to grease the pan well. The cheese makes them want to stick, so you may have to run a knife around the edge to get them to pop out.

  1. These look awesome! I am totally making them for my son. Do you think they would freeze well? I'm all about food prep. 🙂

    1. Hey Katie! I've never frozen them! You may have just inspired me to give that a try! I have refrigerated and just warmed in the microwave and they're definitely better straight from the oven.
