Foodie Friday: Pizza Scones

This recipe has been making the rounds. I first saw it in the May issue of Family Fun Magazine. Next I saw it on Sumo's blog. It really was an awakening for me. Why only add fruit to scones and leave them for breakfast? Why not add other fun ingredients and eat them anytime of the day? They touted them as the perfect picnic food in the Family Fun article. Easy to pack, eat, and clean up after.

Of course I couldn't leave well enough alone and had to make some changes to the recipe mainly for the sake of using what we had on hand. Here's my recipe:
-1 c all purpose flour
-1 c whole wheat flour
-1 T baking powder
-1/2 c corn meal
-1/2 c butter
-1 T fresh basil
-1/2 t oregano
-1/2 t garlic powder
-1/4 t salt
-1/4 c diced onion
-1 c finely shredded cheddar cheese
-1/2 c chopped pepperoni
-2 eggs
-1/2 c buttermilk
-1/4 c pizza sauce

1. Mix flour, baking powder, and corn meal in large bowl. mix in butter with a pastry blender. Add in basil, oregano, garlic powder, salt, onion, cheese, and pepperoni.
2. Whisk eggs, buttermilk, and pizza sauce in medium bowl.
3. Mix the wet ingredients into the other ingredients.
4. Divide dough in half and pat each half into a 1 inch thick circle. Place dough circles on a baking sheet covered with parchment or sprayed with cooking spray. Cut each circle into fourths.
5. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes. (Until golden brown.)
These turned out delicious. We did decide that it would have been good to have a little pizza sauce to dip them in as well.

I haven't seen this recipe before! The name kind of worried me because I think of sweet when I hear scone, but they look and sound pretty good! Thanks for sharing!
