Pepperoni Pizza Muffins


What’s better than pizza?? How about mini pizzas made into muffins that are easy to make and easy to eat-great for a kid’s sleepover or on a buffet…


Pepperoni Pizza Muffins


3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup whole milk
1 egg
1 cup mozzarella cheese-shredded
1 cup pepperonis-I cut into quarters
1/4 cup black olives-chopped
1/4 cup onions-chopped
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 24-cup mini muffin pan.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. Whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella, pepperonis, black olives and onions (or whatever toppings you like most on a pizza). Let stand for 10 minutes.

Divide batter among the mini muffin cups. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the tin and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

In a small bowl heat the pizza sauce until warm, stir in the Italian seasoning and serve on the side.

    Dear Annie, I hope that you and your family are well. I thought to stop by. I have been sporadic in my posting lately. I hope that things are well for you and that you have stopped blogging because you won the lottery or you and your family were suddenly whisked away to Paris! Joni
