Pepperoni Pizza Bites

Normally I would only post something sweet, but I thought these deserved a posting. :) As I said before, we had a "glutton buffet" over the weekend and these were one of the finger foods that I made. I saw these on Megan's Cookin' and knew that I would make them at some point. We are always making some sort of finger food, whether it be for a football game or over the holidays. These were perfect little bites....popular with the 10 kids that were at my house and the adults munched on them too. I did make a couple of little changes, I doubled the recipe to make 4 dozen mini's and added some pizza seasoning to the mix. Not a fan of pepperoni? The combinations are endless in these. Serve with a side of marinara sauce and enjoy!

Pepperoni Pizza Bites
adapted from: Megan

1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cup whole milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups colby jack cheese, shredded
2 cups pepperoni, chopped
1 1/2 tsp pizza seasoning

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Grease a mini muffin tin.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and pizza seasoning; stir in the milk and egg.

Stir in the cheese and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.

Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups.

Bake until puffed and golden, about 25 minutes.

I need to make these. I have practically an entire bag of pepperoni minis I need to use. Colby jack, huh, not mozerella? Where do I get pizza seasoning?

Tracy said...

I wish I had a big plate of these right now! Yum!!

How great that you made them in mini muffin tins. My family would love them too!

Megan said...

What a fun little appetizer! I was expecting to see pizza dough used but I'm guessing it's more like a biscuit/bread dough?

Although really - it doesn't matter, the kids would flip over these!

I love little savory bites like these! Are there any left? :d

Megan said...

Pizza seasoning is a great addition.
I have to make some more of these.

LOVE the looks of these Pizza Bites! I know that my household will fall over backwards with happiness when I make them. Thanks for sharing! :-)

I don't know if I'm thrilled you reminded me about these or cursing the time I'll need to do on the treadmill.

These look good! I've made chicken and bacon pizza bites but i think a diff filling would be better. Have you ever made ham and cheese pretzel bites Oh my.. I have them posted on my site if you wanted to try them. I'm excited to see your 12 weeks of cookies!

Looks like the perfect snack, and my son is peeking over my shoulder and seems to agree :D

My family would love these pizza bites. I know what I'm making this weekend for the football games. And I have some mini muffin pans...perfect!

Just browsing around over here - these look yummy! I have a Tailgating Time blog hop that these would be perfect for :-)
