Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

• 3/4 cup flour
• 3/4 tsp baking powder
• 1/2 tsp garlic powder
• 3/4 cup whole milk
• 1 egg, lightly beaten
• 4 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
• 2 oz mini turkey pepperoni, (about 1/2 cup)
• 4 oz sausage, cooked and crumbled
• 1/2 cup pizza sauce

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