Pizza Bites

I started a recipe swap group on Facebook and this was suggested by one of the members. It was right around Superbowl time so it was perfect for the Superbowl party we were attending. I made one batch and couldn't stop eating them so I had to make another!

3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1 egg lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon parsley
pinch of cayenne pepper, optional
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup pepperoni, diced
1 cup of your favorite marinara sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 24 cup mini muffin pan with cooking spray.  Whisk flour and baking powder together to combine.  Whisk in milk, egg, salt, and seasonings until combined.  Stir in mozzarella and pepperoni.  Let stand 10 minutes.

Stir again and pour into muffin cups filling each about 3/4 full.  Bake at 350 degrees until puffed and golden, about 20 minutes.

Warm sauce and serve alongside the pizza bites for dipping.
