Pepperoni Pizza Muffins

I’ve had a lot of requests for this one and with good reason…they are delish!  This is a great for lunches and/or snacks.

Recipe adapted from Canadian Family

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup cubes of old cheddar and marble
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (I prefer balkan style)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped sweet pepper
  • 1/3 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 2.5 pieces sliced turkey or regular pepperoni (short sticks)
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 400F.  Line large muffin pan with liners. 

In a large bowl whisk together dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, basil and baking soda until combined.

In another bowl whisk together yogurt, eggs & butter.  Pour into flour mixture and mix until there are no more dry spots (do not over mix).  Add in sweet pepper, cubed cheese and pepperoni (batter is very thick…I thinned it with a little milk).   Spoon evenly into muffin tins.  Add a squirt of pizza sauce on top and a sprinkle of mozzarella.

Bake for 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Start testing at about 12 minutes.  Let cool in pan 5 minutes and then completely cool on wire rack.  They freeze well.
