Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

6 Posted by - September 26, 2012 - Food & Drink

I really tried hard to mess this recipe up. I mean, you know, not on purpose. But there were several things that could have gone awry.

Let me back up. I attempted this:

You guys know how things in muffin tins tend to go for me, and if you don’t, let me present evidence:

So you can understand my trepidation, right?

There were other things I was worried about, too.

1. Expired baking powder.

2. Not-so-fresh Parmesan cheese. (But hey, it’s naturally aged, so that’s something.)

3. Inability to find cubed pepperoni. I found regular pepperoni and chopped it up myself.

(Note dog in bottom right corner making extra sure I didn’t drop any pepperonis by accident.)

With all of these factors combined, plus the fact that I’ve never successfully unstuck a thing in a muffin tin (besides an actual muffin), my expectations were quite low.

I did use Bakers Joy instead of Pam to spray the muffin tins… So maybe, just maybe…

And they came out looking pretty damn delicious, so when the moment of truth came, I was really, really hoping they would come out of the tin without much of a fight.

Are you in suspense yet?

Drumroll, please…

Holy shitballs! It worked!

I’d like to thank Bakers Joy, my mini muffin tins, the fork that was the implement of removal, and, of course, last but not least, pepperoni grease. I couldn’t have done it alone! Thank you, thank you.

Also, they were quite delicious, but how could a pizza biscuit not be delicious, really?

    Harris Teeter! The Teeter! Sorry. I grew up in NC and was just reminiscing (I just went to to make sure I spelled that right). But those look yummy. Definately on my to-do list!

    well this is definitely a pin I will have to try, if the all muffin destroyer managed to make them look like actual food then there is something to this recipe

    Dude, baking powder expires?

    I’ve done a lot of experimenting with ingredients myself, and I’ve come to the conclusion that an idiotproof way to make something delicious is to use cheese (or chocolate for the sweets). Any kind of cheese will do. It’s too bad I’m lactose intolerant.

      palinadagny Use Cabot brand. All 100% naturally lactose free 🙂 And they are delicious!

    I made these before but I had to substitute the flour stuff for a small envelope/package of Bisquick stuff. And hey, it didn’t taste awful. Yeah for me!

    Do you think maybe your just not great in the kitchen?  I know I’m not, someone could be next to me going step by step and I’d still mess it up.

    Good for you!

    Baker’s Joy probably did help a lot! I know a lot of things would stick to my muffin and cake pans when I used other sprays and the butter/flour dusting, but once my MIL told me about Baker’s Joy and I switched, the sticking stopped. I’ve used it for about five years now.

    Baker’s Joy is awesome. That is all.

    I originally stumbled onto this recipe after laughing at your penis cake on Craft Fail. I love the concept of your page. These bites look delicious. Unfortunately, when I was trying to come back to this recipe to try it, I saw so many different pizza bite pins on pinterest, but I couldn’t seem to find the right one, so I came to your site to try and find it, but I couldn’t find a search box, so I just had to browse through your food category until I found it, but sometimes as I scrolled down I accidentally clicked on a recipe. When I hit the back button, it reloaded the food category page, so I had to start over, clicking on “load more” every few pictures. Needless to say, it took a while. These pizza bites better be worth it!
    I was hoping I could use Brewer’s Yeast and maybe nutritional yeast powder in place of the flour, since I’m on a low-carb diet, plus the brewer’s yeast is a good source of dietary chromium, which should further improve my blood sugar control and hopefully increase weight loss.
    Anyways, it seems like the flavors should mesh just fine, I’m just not sure how well the deactivated yeast powder will behave in place of the flour. Thoughts?
    If it works, I will definitely have to share my modification with other low carbers!
