Yield 24 mini puffs


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 3/4 cup whole milk

  • 4 ounces Italian cheese blend
  • 1 cup diced pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 24 count mini-muffin tin with nonstick spray, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes. Stir in milk and eggs until a batter has formed. Fold in cheese and pepperoni. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes.
