Remember the frozen pizza snacks from childhood? Sadly they are loaded with animal products. However, don’t you fret none, we have come up with a vegan version. Our Pepperoni Pizza Puffs are even better than the mass-produced snack of our youth. They are great for snacks at a game day party or as hors d’oeuvres to serve with cocktails. If you don’t like pepperoni, leave it out. Or substitute your favorite topping like vegan sausage, vegan beefy crumbles, or some diced vegetables. You can make these ahead of time and simply reheat them before serving. You might want to make a double batch as these will go quickly.
