Mmmm, Pizza Muffins!

I have a new, overwhelming obsession with the website Pinterest.  I think I have cooked and baked more since my friend Megan introduced me, than I had in months previous.  One of my favorite recipes so far has been Pizza Muffins. 

These muffins were so delicious that Brian had me make them twice in a week.  They are super easy, and very delicious.  They would make a wonderful football party snack (or just a fun dinner).  The original recipe is found here.

Pizza Muffins

3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
pinch of salt
3/4 cup milk (the original recipe calls for whole, but I used 1% with no problem)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded mozzerella cheese (I used an Italian blend)
1/4 cup grated parmesan
1 cup cubed pepperoni (I couldn't find cubed at the store, so I bought slices and cut them into 1/2 inch squares)
1/2 cup store bought marinara or pizza sauce

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan.
2.  Whisk together the flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning and salt.  Whisk in the milk and egg.  Stir in the mozzarella, parmesan, and pepperoni.  Let stand for 10 minutes (I attempted to do this but gave up after about 2 minutes because I had a hungry husband).
3.  Stir the batter and divide into the mini-muffin cups.  Bake until puffed and golden, about 20-25 minutes (slightly longer at high altitude).
3.  Microwave the pizza sauce.  Serve muffins with pizza sauce for dipping and enjoy!


  1. I LOVE PINTEREST! That's why I've been cooking so much lately too!

  2. I think you should make these for our tailgate on Saturday!

  3. They are soo good! We make them all the time to!
