Babycakes Pizza Poppers

I used to makes pizza pancakes for small gathering.  I would make the pancakes up and cut them into triangles (pizza wedges) and serve with warmed pizza sauce for dipping.  I was excited when I got the Babycakes cake pop maker - I had this recipe in mind as well as others.  Just because it says it is a cake pop maker doesn't mean that you have to cook cake in it.

Babycakes Pizza Poppers

2 cups Bisquick
2 tsp Italian Seasoning
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 c Mozzarella cheese, grated
1/2 cup Pepperoni, finely chopped
1/2 cup Cooked Sausage, finely chopped
Pizza Sauce, warmed

In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients.  In a small bowl combine liquid ingredients and add to the dry ingredients.  Fold in cheese, pepperoni and sausage.  The batter should be a thick pancake batter consistency, if it get too thick, stir in more milk until it reaches desired thickness. 



I put the batter into a gallon plastic bag and cut off a corner (remember
there are chunks of meat so the opening will need to accommodate)
 to easily fill the wells.  Cook for 4 minutes.

This is how they look after the 4 minutes.  Notice how some of
them spilled out of the wells.  No problem, remove the poppers
from the cooker and let cool a little bit.  The "wings" snap right off
(they are very crispy).



The recipe makes a lot of them.  Since I was experimenting, there was some
sampling going on so I can't tell you how many it made, but it was a plate full.
I would say that it would serve 7-10 people but if this was for a party, there
 is usually other food so I would say 7-10 easily.  I cut a few in half so you
can see the inside.  Serve these with warmed pizza sauce for dipping.  They
are very satisfying.  I prefer them in the popper form rather than the
pancakes (the pancakes would be limp but tasted good).

  2. These worked beautifully the other night for me! I just added extra pepperoni instead of sausage. This recipe made four dozen for me. My kids and husband and I all enjoyed them! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  3. Have you tried them with tomato paste injected in the center? I just picked up my baby cake cake pop maker and can not wait to try this. That's for the website and ideas!

  4. Great idea! I've been looking for other things to make besides sweets and will definitely try these today. I think the above comment from anonymous about injecting pizza sauce is a great idea too! Thanks for the recipe!

  5. Really good recipe! I tried putting the pizza sauce into the injector to inject it into the pizza poppers but the sauce is too thin to inject. Tastes good though thanks!

  8. Did you serve these warm-ish or at room temp? Or maybe just with warm sauce? Trying to figure out hot to serve at a potluck when I need to prep in advance and travel to get there (local). Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

    1. You can make ahead and refrigerate, just before serving, place on a cookie sheet and warm in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 8-10 minutes and serve with warm sauce.

    2. I put them in my crockpot on the "keep warm" setting. Works perfect when served with or without sauce
