Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 can gluten free condensed tomato soup (or your own homemade substitute)
- 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
- 1/2 cup chopped turkey pepperoni
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose gluten free baking mix
- Optional: pizza sauce for dipping
For the tomato soup substitute:
- 8 ounces tomato sauce
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
And here’s how you make them:

- Combine condensed tomato soup (or your homemade substitute), cheese, pepperoni, water, and seasoning in a large mixing bowl. Mix well. Then add the baking mix, and stir until combined (batter will be lumpy).
- Coat the mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Using your hands, form the batter into small balls, about the size of a golf ball. Divide the batter evenly between the 36 mini muffin cups.
- Bake the muffins for 20 minutes, or until the muffins are light brown in color.
- Let the muffins cool for a few minutes before removing them from the pan.
- Serve with pizza sauce for dipping, if desired.
