Since this quiz seems to be based on de facto control there are a few more I would suggest:

French forces in WWI established the Autonomous Province of Korçë. (1916-1920)

Wallachia and Moldavia existed independently until 1859, though it is questionable if Moldavia was Balkan.

As said above Northern Epirus existed briefly during 1914.

The Soviet Union also debatably held territory on the peninsula during WWII during the liberation of Romania and Bulgaria.

Kosovo is recognized as independent by over 100 UN members. That said, I've also think Palestine and Western Sahara should be JetPunk recognized.

Most definitions of the Balkans include Greece and there are Greek islands that were independent or 'managed' by other countries which I'd think should be included -

- Septinsular Republic 1800-1807 (independent and/or Russian/Ottoman rule),

- United States of the Ionian Islands 1815-1864 (UK), and

- Cretan State 1897-1913

Northern Epirus was never recognized by anyone for the few months it claimed independence

I also expected Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes to also be on the list
