Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
combine in one bowl:
3/4 C flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 TBS Italian seasoning
dash of salt
3/4 C milk
1 C grated cheese (original recipe calls for an additional 1/4 C parmesan but I rarely have that on hand so I just do an overflowing cup of whatever - mozzarella or colby jack, etc.)
Spray mini muffin pan. I found my silicone pan to be the perfect size because it uses all of the dough exactly. Scoop the dough (it's very wet) into the pan. I end up filling them most of the way. The recipe also said to wait 10 minutes before baking (I assume to let the baking powder start to work), but I use that time to cut up the pepperoni. I've done the pepperoni in full-size slices, but I like it better cut up. Put them in how you like and as much as you like.
Bake for 20 minutes. Dip in pizza-type sauce if you like. My kids adore these!
Someone online was creative enough to make their own wire mesh baskets using this stuff. It's called Hardware Cloth and it's found in the gardening section of stores like The Home Depot and Lowe's. I got my roll for like $13 and in this picture I've used a bunch already. It started out like 10 feet long by 2 feet wide. There are different sizes.
Considering that purchasing a basket costs anywhere from $8 to $30, I think this is a deal!
