Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

Yep, this is our weather:PM Rain / Snow
Doesn't it make you ill? ...moving on...

I saw this in Everyday with Rachel Ray. Confession time: she annoys me. I don't know what it is about her, but I can't watch her for more than a few minutes before I have to change the channel. I think it's because she's way more bubbly than I'm used to. Most people around me are mellow and she's not. Another thing is her refusal to say "extra virgin olive oil"! Why must she shorten it to EVOO? No one else does!

Anywho, my church has a program where ladies are paired up to go visit each other. We deliver a message and fellowship and try to serve one another. It's called visit teaching. I love it and I love my visiting teachers. They usually bring me a treat, but I decided to make them something instead. In hindsight, I should have doubled this recipe. If you're serving it as an appetizer or as a side, then this is okay, but otherwise, you'll want to double.

3/4c flour
3/4tsp baking powder
1Tbsp Italian seasoning
1/4tsp red pepper flakes (I wanted a little kick, you can leave this out)
3/4c milk
1 lightly beaten egg
1c shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/4c grated Parmesan cheese (the stuff in the green can works just fine!)
1c pepperoni slices, cut into quarters
1/2c pizza sauce

Grease a muffin pan. I used a regular sized one, RR used a mini. I didn't want to bring this up, but my mini pan and I called it quits. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, and red peper flakes. Then whisk in egg and milk.

Stir in the cheeses and pepperoni. Let stand 10 minutes.

While it's resting, preheat oven to 375. Stir the batter once more and pour into muffin pan.

Bake 20-25 minutes until brown. Meanwhile, heat up the pizza sauce in the microwave until warm.

Dip & eat!
