Bite Sized Pizza Muffins

Let me introduce you to someone dear to my heart:

That's my oldest son, Logan.  Also known around these parts as Mr. Picky Pants.  The kid is the pickiest eater I've ever had the trouble pleasure of cooking for.  When I saw the following recipe on Pinterest, I knew it was one I had to try.

 Bite sized pizza muffins - perfect for a 10 year old to grab and reheat when he got hungry!  The following recipe is adapted from Every Day with Rachel Ray by way of Lick the Bowl Good:

INGREDIENTS: (my changes are in red)
·         3/4 cup flour
·         3/4 teaspoon baking powder
·         3/4 cup almond milk, unflavored 
·         1 egg, lightly beaten
·         4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded 
·         4 ounces pepperoni, cut into small cubes 
·         1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
·         1 tsp. garlic powder
·         3/4 tsp. kosher salt
·         1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese
·         pizza sauce for dipping

1.     Preheat the oven to 375°. Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, oregano, basil and garlic; whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella, pepperoni and parmesan cheese; let stand for 10 minutes.
2.     Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
3.     Meanwhile, microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.

And what did Mr. Picky Pants think?  He ate five for lunch and wanted more for dinner...(sorry dude, I have to draw the line somewhere)
