Stuffed Pizza Puffs


Stuffed Pizza Puffs

This past weekend, iconic football games lured my guys to the TV for more hooping and hollering than I have heard in a long time.

That says a LOT considering I sit through more noise than any one mom’s poor ear drums should have to put up with from all my teen guys. I love being a boys (and girl) mom like crazy, but whew, it’s tiring.

So while they sat making all their noise, I decided to play around with some of our favorite shredded cheeses and what began as an appetizer, turned into the perfect creative football meal.

Initially prepared in a mini muffin tins, these Stuffed Pizza Puffs were so good that when our 275 pound football player downed five in one bite, I decided that tiny appetizers = win, but full sized Stuffed Pizza Puffs are a necessity.

For company, I will stick to the smaller size, but these will definitely be a recipe that I make for quick lunches on the go. They are the perfect “hand sized” meal.

Now, you will definitely want to remember this yummy Stuffed Pizza Puff recipe.

Everyone in my family raved about them. They are so versatile, depending on what kind of pizza toppings you like. Take your favorite toppings and just “stuff” them in that batter. Remember, we are the “more meat, the better” kind of family, so ours were chock full, but you can easily cut the meat in half and add extra veggies or just go for a more vegetarian approach, but then they are more like my Egg and Cheese Puffs. 😉

Since our family is always looking for simple comfort food, we also love this 5 Minute Pizza Pull Apart bread.

I have a host of Simple Holiday Recipes. Enjoy them.




  1. These look delicious! I think I could easily make these the main dish of a casual family dinner and then add a big salad and maybe some sliced fruit. Yummy!

    Yes, you definitely could because that’s exactly what I did when I switched from the mini to the regular sized ones. :)


  2. Thanks for sharing what I call “real” recipes. Oftentimes I hear of great recipes, but they start with some sort of pre-packaged mix. We live overseas and those little pre-packaged mixes just aren’t available (or are WAY overpriced!). So, I’m happy to find a relatively simple, yet hearty snack or meal using ingredients in my pantry!
