Sausage & Pepperoni Pizza Puffs - quick Bisquick and buttermilk drop biscuits loaded with sausage, pepperoni, mozzarella, and Italian seasoning. SO good! Super simple to make and ready in minutes! These make a great appetizer, snack, and a quick lunch or dinner. I usually double the recipe for parties because these things fly off the plate! Serve with some warm pizza sauce or marinara. Use gluten-free Bisquick for a gluten-free snack.

Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough, and place on the prepared cookie sheet.

I garnished the puffs with dried parsley.
I used Jimmy Dean's hot sausage. You can substitute turkey sausage for a lower-calorie option.

Feel free to add any of your favorite pizza toppings to the dough - mushrooms, peppers, onions, olives.
I used a medium cookie scoop to make the puffs. You can use a small cookie scoop or a large cookie scoop. You will just need to adjust the cooking time.
Can pizza puffs be frozen? Yes! You can freeze the leftover biscuits for later. Let the biscuits cool completely and place in a freezer bag and freeze. Reheat in the microwave or covered in foil in the oven.
