Pepperoni Pizza Muffins

Yesterday morning I was in the middle of my routine of coffee and blog reading, when I came across these from Noble Pig.  Pepperoni Pizza Puffs.  I knew immediately what I was going to have for lunch.  I share the love for pizza that is talked about, I fully understand the want for pizza 6 nights a week.  After reviewing the recipe, I had to make a few changes due to what was on hand.

3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup whole milk
1 egg, beaten
1 cup mozzarella, parmesan, cheddar cheeses mixed
1 cup turkey pepperoni diced
Pizza sauce from a jar
A few shakes of garlic powder, oregano, basil, and crushed red pepper

This came together quick.  Mix the flour and baking powder.  Then add in the egg and milk.  Once incorporated add in the pepperoni and cheese.  Wait 10 minutes.  It looks kinda thin at first but in thickens up nicely after the wait time.
Noble Pig says to evenly distribute them into 24 greased mini muffin pans.  I am not very good at even distribution so we only got 22.  You can see the two empty lonely muffin cups.
After 23 minutes in the 375 oven they were done.
I heated up the pizza sauce in the microwave and added in a the seasonings.
These were absolutely delicious.  Between Byrd and I we ate all 22 for lunch.  I was full but I could have eaten them all by myself.  These were great for lunch, but then again they would be great for any meal/snack/party etc.  Thank you Noble Pig.  The possibilities are endless with a base like this.  I can't wait to try many more combos.
