I usually make all kinds of pizza from the scratch for Friday night.But to tell you the truth it takes a lot of time and work to knead and wait few hours for the dough to rise finally bake it just in time to serve it hot. I don't mind doing it but with almost same ingredients these puffs can be done in a jiffy so why not go for it right!
I am sure all pizza loving families would enjoy these puffs.
Ideal for kids parties, movie night ,grab and go snack or in-between practices' for your kids. Filling and mess free car snacks.... Can World favorite pizza get any better than this!
