This one was really good and I added enough pizza seasoning instead of italian seasoning that it had plenty of zip for me.

3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning (I used a pizza seasoning grinder instead)
pinch of salt (optional)
pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
3/4 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated paremsan cheese
1 cup cubed pepperoni
1/2 cup store-bought pizza sauce
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, salt and red pepper flakes (if using); whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella, parmesan and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.
Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.
Notes: I must have added too much extra pepperoni, it didn't fit into the 24 mini muffin pans. I had to make more than that. The recipe I have said she made the extra into a full size muffin, I didn't. I might try just making the full size ones next time.
I'm thinking this would be a great finger food for a game night with a bunch of teen girls!
