Pizza Puffs

Today I have a fun recipe for yet another appetizer that can be made in cupcake form.  These pizza puffs are the perfect bite-sized appetizer for a kids birthday party.  They are super simple and you end up with an adorable bite of pizza.  Just dip in marinara sauce and you are ready to go!  I made the basic version, but the original recipe has a bunch of ideas for different flavors of pizza, so you should definitely check it out.  Or, just add the flavors that you enjoy! My version below is for about 100 mini puffs.

Pizza Puffs (adapted from Six in the Suburbs)

3 3/4 cups flour
3 3/4 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 3/4 cups skim milk
5 eggs
5 cups low-fat mozzarella cheese
Marinara Sauce

1. Preheat oven to 375 and lightly grease a mini muffin pan.
2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and garlic together.
3. In a stand mixer, whisk the milk, eggs, and mozzarella cheese together until the eggs are well combined. Slowly stir in the dry ingredients until incorporated.
4. Fill each cup in the mini muffin pan about 3/4 full and bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm and with marinara sauce for dipping.  We had the marinara sauce in a mini slow-cooker with the pizza puffs nearby and it was perfect for a large party! You can also place the pizza puffs in the fridge and then reheat them by placing them in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes.
Enjoy :)
