I made these for lunch over the weekend, and they tasted as good as they looked. They are DELICIOUS!! My hungry crew devoured them and I’m positive yours will too.

These little puffs are very simple to make. Feel free to change up the fillings as you like. Try mushrooms, peppers, ham, chicken; the possibilities are endless! Just use your favorite pizza toppings. These puffs would make a fantastic snack for watching a sports game or family movie night.
