Kimber's Korner: Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

What kid doesn't like pizza?!?! If you are like me and love pizza, then you are not going to wanna miss these Pepperoni Pizza Puffs. They really are bite-size pizzas! My mom and I made them with pepperoni and cheese, but you can have fun with it and make them your own. Ham and pineapple? Sausage and green peppers? It's up to you. Just have fun in the kitchen whipping up this delicious and nutritious recipe. We sure did! Check out the video:

  4. Oh, I'll bet the girls will love this one!! I think Pizza has to be one of the four basic food groups! (Or maybe it is at the top of the pyramid!)
