Pizza Bites (super kid friendly)
These are a great alternative to pizza rolls. Sometimes it’s not my kids who are hard to please with food, but my husband, although he tries. Tonight was my third time making these pizza bites, he has approved! This recipe has about 4 carbs compared to the other brand at about 40 carbs. I use silicone baking cups with a mini muffin tin, no need to grease. I also tripled the batch (77 bites total) and froze the rest for a quick meal or snack later.
Here is the recipe:
1/3 cup freshly ground flaxseed
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 TBS Italian seasoning
pinch of Celtic sea salt
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (I used almond cheese)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup cubed nitrate free pepperoni ( I used sausage)
1/2 cup no sugar added pizza sauce (Ragu makes one)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flaxseed, baking powder, Italian seasoning, and salt; whisk
in the egg. Stir in the mozzarella, Parmesan and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.
Stir the batter and place in the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the pizza sauce until warmed through. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping. Makes 30 mini muffins. Makes 5 servings.
