These cute little Pizza Muffins are so delicious and incredibly easy to make. I ran across the recipe and had all the ingredients, so I gave them a try and boy am I glad I did. Fresh out of the oven they smelled so yummy and as you pulled apart the warm muffin the melted cheese oozes out, the pizza sauce is nice, warm and full of flavor, the veggies cooked just enough, but still with a bit of crunch. Absolutely scrumptious and gave your tummy that warm feeling that only comfort food can give you. And this, as it turns out, is comfort food the easy way. The original recipe used pepperoni on top, which you can totally do, but we do things vegetarian around here so we add veggies to everything.
This recipe is such a great idea for kids. It would be so fun to do at a birthday party. You could put out all sorts of toppings and the kids could fill there own muffins. What kid wouldn’t love this recipe?! They only take a few minutes to cook and the best part is they reheat wonderfully. About 20 seconds in the microwave and you have a great after school healthy snack or you could put them in their lunches. It also makes a great on-the-go snack, when you’re running out the door to the next kids activity. Wish I had known about these a few years ago. It would also make a great appetizer for a party.
Here’s all you do to make these warm and delicious Pizza Muffins…
Ingredients: Large refrigerated biscuits, pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, any toppings you’d like. I used mushrooms and green peppers.
I made sure and cut up the veggies very small to fit in the muffins and to make sure they cooked enough. This size was perfect.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray muffin pan with cooking oil.
Divide dough into 8 pieces and place in muffin pan pressing down in the middle to make a place for the sauce, cheese and toppings.
Add a spoon full of pizza sauce in each.
Add some cheese to each.
Some of them I left with just cheese.
Some with green peppers.
And some with green peppers and mushrooms.
Ready to go into the oven…
Bake for 15 minutes.
Fresh out of the oven.
Ready to eat.
Soft on the inside with a little crunch on the outside. Perfectly cooked.
- Store bought refrigerated large biscuits (8)
- mozzarella cheese
- pizza sauce or pasta sauce
- any toppings: veggies, meat
Divide biscuit dough into 8 pieces. Place each piece into a greased muffin tin, pressing the middle of each one down a bit to form a space for the sauce. Scoop a spoonful of sauce onto each biscuit, then top with mozzarella and toppings. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees, until biscuit browns and cheese melts. Enjoy
Hope you enjoy these as much as my family did. Adults and kids love them.
All the best,
