Pizza puff recipe for a quick lunch

Delish Pizza Puffs

These Pizza Puffs make a great portable meal for the kids’ lunches or a fast dinner! They’re perfect for those times when you have an insane schedule and have to eat dinner between sports games or activities for the kids.

Convenience isn’t the only great thing about this recipe though, these things have some nice flavor too! They’re much better than the store-bought pizza puffs and they’re also pretty healthy (depending on the ingredients you use).

Pizza Puff Ingredients

Just like a normal pizza, these pizza puffs are pretty customizable. You can add your own vegetables, cheese mixes, meats, you name it! Get creative and let us know what you added in the comments.

Also, if you’re looking to make a lower fat and lower calorie version of these pizza puffs, use turkey pepperoni instead of regular. If made that way you’re looking at about 38 calories per pizza puff.

Pizza Puff Serving Tips

When I had these pizza puffs myself, I almost preferred them at room temperature. When they’re hot they are puffy and airy with melty cheese; when cooled they are denser like actual pizza bites. Honestly, they are good both ways, so test out both to see which is your favorite!

If you want to add some extra flavor to your pizza puffs, dip them in pizza sauce or another one of your favorite sauces.

Note: These don’t have to be refrigerated so they’re a great option for school lunches, easy appetizers, or quick snacks.
