Paleo Pizza Popovers

I am pretty sure every person reading this blog enjoys pizza.  I’m also fairly certain that most people reading this blog either eat unhealthy versions of pizza or go way out of their way to try and make a healthy version?  I may be wrong, but sometimes you really want PIZZA (and there are recipes for that), and sometimes you just want the pizza flavor.  This is for the time when you feel lazy, don’t necessarily need the bread texture, but do crave some Italian without the guilt.  These popovers can be made tons of different ways.  I currently have a sweet and savory option on the blog, but the pizza version gets it’s own post.
Paleo Pizza Popovers
3 Tbsp arrowroot or tapioca starch
2 Tbsp coconut flour
1/4 tsp salt
4 large eggs, room temp
1/4 cup canned coconut milk
1/4 cup water
1 Tbsp ghee or coconut oil
1 tsp Italian seasoning
5 slices pepperoni minced
Preheat oven to 450F. In a small bowl combine the flours and salt.  In another medium bowl, whisk the eggs lightly and add the coconut milk and water.  Add the flour mixture and combine until smooth. Add in the seasoning and pepperoni. Put a little oil in each of the 6 muffin tins.  Put the muffin tin and oil into the oven for 5 minutes and remove.  Pour 1/4 cup batter into each muffin tin.  Cook for 15 minutes and reduce heat to 350F.  Cook until golden brown, which could be another 15 minutes. Serve over homemade basil pesto or red sauce.  Garnish with fresh basil.
