It’s that time of year again, FOOTBALL SEASON!! My absolute favorite time of year! I love watching football, but I especially love the tailgating! Every Friday, from now until the Super Bowl, I will be sharing a new and delicious tailgating recipe. All the recipes are quick, easy and perfect for football watching parties.
Today’s recipe is for Pepperoni Pizza Pastry Puffs. They are two bite pepperoni pizzas, and oh, SO good! Puff pastry topped with sauce, cheese and pepperoni. We’ve made these a few times and they are always a hit. There are never any leftovers. I also like to eat them for lunch. If you want to make these ahead of time, you can assemble these and freeze unbaked for later. Just thaw and bake as directed.
