Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

You knew there was something coming up to use that delicious Homemade Garlic Pizza Sauce. Well here it is. Pepperoni Pizza Puffs. I have to admit. I have to admit, I was very excited about all of the miniature food involved in this recipe. Not only are these bites baked in a mini muffin pan, but they use mini pepperonis! If you haven’t seen them at your store, trust me, they’re too cute to pass up!

I love that you could throw anything in these pizza bites. I went with mini pepperoni because I just couldn’t resist. I think some green peppers would be really good as well.

    My favorite pizza place when I lived in Boston was Sicilia’s…I love their stuffed pizza. It was always our go-to on Superbowl Sunday.

    I, like you, only eat pizza sparingly now though and its typically homemade. there are just so many good toppings you can put on homemade pizza that you can’t find in pizza places (sweet potatoes?). This bbq chicken pizza looks delicious!

    I blame it on my stomach issues CB. Plus, I ate enough pizza in college to last a life time!
