Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

This is a fun, easy meal for the next time you want to please your child (or husband) with a twist on pizza.  Texturally, they are definitely more of a puff than a muffin (reminiscent of Cheddar Cheese Puffs), but their lightness makes you appreciate the pepperoni even more.  And they're delicious!
