Pizza Scones

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup fine cornmeal
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. basil
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup diced sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pepperoni (optional)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

Directions

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, basil, oregano, and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or two knives, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Place the diced sun-dried tomatoes in a medium bowl and cover them with boiling water. Let them stand for 30 seconds, then drain the water and stir in the cheese and pepperoni.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and the buttermilk, then add them and the tomato mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir until the mixture forms a sticky dough.
  • Turn out the dough on to a lightly floured surface. Gently knead the dough until it holds together, about 5-10 times. Divide the dough in half and pat each half into a 1-inch thick disk. Slice each disk into 8 wedges.
    -Place the wedges on the prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
