Meatless Monday: Whole Wheat Pizza Puffs


How did I NOT know about pizza puffs?  They might be the most perfect food ever invented.  Seriously.  My vegetarian husband is IN LOVE, my kids can’t get enough and I’m just psyched to serve them at my next dinner party. I think maybe I’ve had one too many pizza puffs?!

I believe the “inventor” of the pizza puff is Rachel Ray [2].  Her pizza puffs look delicious, but also incredibly devilish.  Lots of pepperoni, white flour, cheese, etc.

We did a little experimenting with different fillings and found a combination that the whole family loves.  After we’ve had our fill, I let the leftovers cool down completely and then throw them in a freezer bag.

They taste just as great warmed up in a 350 degree oven whenever you need a little something to eat.  (Or have company pop over!)
