Once the dry ingredients are mixed, add skim milk and a large egg, whisking until a consistent batter forms. Integrate reduced-fat shredded mozzarella, grated Parmesan, and quartered turkey pepperoni into the mixture, ensuring a well-combined dough.

Next, distribute the batter evenly among the mini muffin tin cups. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-22 minutes or until the puffs achieve a golden brown hue. Once out of the oven, let them cool slightly before serving. These mini puffs are best enjoyed warm and are accompanied by a delectable pizza sauce for dipping.
