Pepperoni Pizza Muffins

When I’m online looking for dinner inspiration, I often search for recipes that take something my family loves and make it into something new.  Since pizza is one of my family’s favorite treat, I try to find new ways to incorporate it into our menu – kinda like I did with the Fried Pizza Bites. When I stumbled onto a recipe from the Noble Pig, I knew I had to try it out on my family!

They absolutely loved it! The recipe was simple, only required a few ingredients and didn’t take long at all to prepare!  Remember, I like to keep things simple and fast in the kitchen, and this recipe is definitely both!  With very few ingredients, it definitely won’t break the bank and that is another HUGE plus for me.

So, go get you a big bowl and let’s get started in making this simple, yet tasty recipe.

Grease a 12-cup muffin pan and carefully pour or spoon the mixture into each of the cups.  Bake 18 to 23 minutes, or until they are puffed and golden brown.

Don’t those look absolutely yummy?!?  The ease of being able to pick these up without fear of getting messy and having droppings all down the front of my shirt is so satisfying.  Serve with a side of pizza sauce for dipping and you are good to go!

    These look great! My boyfriend is stationed overseas in the Marines and I would love to send him some! How long do you think they would last without refrigeration?

      Cook them in Mason Jars and they last for weeks. I sent this kind of goodie, along with cakes, pumpkin bread (my Mom’s traditional Christmas recipe) and others to my son when he was stationed in Afghanistan.

    Made them today- they were pretty good! A little bland, though. I think Im gonna try again with a little bit more seasonings as well as another kind of cheese.
    Stumbled this!

    We have a very picky 2 1/2 year old and figured he would love them. Well he was being picky when I baked them today and didn’t want to try them but I’m sure he will! My husband and I enjoyed them very much. I will make them again! Thanks so much. If anyone can give me any good ideas for a picky eater that would be great! :)

      Hi Megan,

      Thanks for stopping by. Each time I’ve made them, there has never been any left over so I’m not sure if they save well or not. If you try it out, could you let me know your results?

      I hope you enjoy!

    I made this type of muffin for my son when he was in Afghanistan and craving pizza. I cooked them in mason jars, which is so versatile and so much fun!!!

  29. 32

    Awesome- I had everything except for the pepperoni so I used salame (low sodium) and my 5 year old loved it. This will make a great lunch for school too. Glad I stumbled across your recipe. Thanks.

    I did end up making this for dinner for us tonight and it tasted really good. I added pizza seasoning along with the oregano and I had the mini pepporoni pieces so I didn’t even have to cut them up.
    Bill and I were talking about using sausage and the 4-cheese Italian next time.
    I found this really easy and really good, thanks for sharing. =)

  31. 34

    This looks great!! But how many pieces are we talking about? I mean, how many muffins per batch can this recipe make? (all muffins being the size of the one in the pictures off course :P)

  32. 36

    I made these but I used ham, pineapple, pepper jack cheese and unflavoured almond milk (that is what I had). I also used regular sized muffin tins. My husband and I both thought they were delicious!

    I am neither a mommy or a daddy yet, but this recipe is fantastic. I’ve made it about 4 times now and its such an easy snack to make. ^5 More men need to check stuff out like this. These will make great gameday snacks.

  34. 38

    I have been making these for about two years now. Every time we have a pot luck at work, and I always make them for our Alabama tailgate in Tuscaloosa! Our tailgating friends now make requests for them, and I have been asked multiple times for the recipe. In short, they are a hit!
