Pizza Puffs

I think the only thing I like about football games is the opportunity to make awesome finger foods and appetizers to drink with copious amounts of tasty beer. Unfortunately, we tend to do things like go skiing on football days, so I haven’t made as many delicious things as I would like…

When I saw this quickie recipe in Southern Living I had to make it right away since:
A.) Pizza is probably my favorite food
B.) This recipe is super easy to make
C.) They come out as cute tiny minis!
