Mini Pepperoni Pizza Muffins
Our family is a group of serious pizza lovers and we typically have pizza at least once a week. When things aren’t super hectic, we even like to have what we call “Family Pizza Night” where we eat pizza and curl up on the couch and watch a movie together. While we sometimes will order out for pizza, we mostly like to make our own at home and these delicious pizza muffin cups are one of the most requested items by my husband and boys.
These mini pizza muffins are the perfect meal for fun family nights, a great appetizer idea for entertaining with friends, or amazing on days when you are simply craving the delicious flavor of pepperoni pizza. These pizza muffins may be small in size but they are packed full of flavor and will definitely leave you feeling fully satisfied. You can also add other ingredients to your muffins if pepperoni isn’t your thing, such as sausage, ham and pineapple, or just cheese.
You can also easily double the recipe by using two cans of pizza dough if you’re serving a large crowd or want leftovers for the next day. These warm up really nice in the microwave and I love packing them for lunch. Make sure to grab a mini muffin pan if you don’t already have one. I absolutely love this affordable 48 mini cup one.
Just look at how delicious the cheese, sauce, and pepperoni looks! Also, can I just point out the fact that everything is cuter in mini form? Seriously, think about it. Miniature ponies, miniature cupcakes, miniature pepperoni pizza muffins… the list goes on and on! 😉
