Pizza Puffs – Football Friday

Sausage & Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

It’s that time again – it’s Football Friday!!!  This has been a great football season so far.  My team is doing good and our tailgates have been incredible – lots of family and friends (old & new)!

A few weeks ago I shared one of my new favorite recipes, Sausage Cheese Puffs.  I absolutely love them- they are so easy to make and a real crowd pleaser.  As I was stuffing my face eating the Sausage Puffs, I thought that they would be good with some pepperoni added and dipped in pizza sauce.  I doctored up the original recipe and came up with these Pizza Puffs.  They were great!  We had them for lunch, and I had enough leftover to eat for dinner another night.  Like the Sausage Cheese Puffs, the pizza puffs freeze well.  Make a double batch – these don’t last long!  Enjoy!

Pizza Puffs

(Printable Recipe)

  • ½ pound sausage
  • ¼ cup mini turkey pepperoni (or chopped regular pepperoni)
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 ½ cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese (or Italian cheese blend)
  • 6-7 Tbps buttermilk

In a skillet, cook and crumble sausage until no longer pink; drain. In a bowl, combine biscuit mix, seasoning and cheese; stir in sausage and pepperoni. Add buttermilk and toss with a fork until just moistened. Shape into 1-1/2-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Cool on wire racks.

Baked puffs may be frozen; reheat at 400 degrees F for 7-9 minutes or until heated through (they do not need to thawed first).
