Mini Pepperoni Pizza Muffins

21 Jul
I saw this recipe online last December and bookmarked it for a later time. When tasked to try something different to bring to John and Jeff’s Gay Wine Poolday last weekend, I found it and made it!

There’s your ingredients

I wasnt sure how it would turn out…but when I asked Robb to taste-test, he immediately said with enthusiasm, “These are going to be gone in NO-TIME tomorrow. Everyone is going to eat the s*&t out of them”.


Mixture up close

Annnnnnnnnnd, he was right! They were a HUGE hit. They look more like flattened muffins, but the taste was ALL there. I think next time I might cut back on the crushed red pepper flakes – depending on my audience. They were definitely spicy but nothing you cant handle.

Get ready to bake, muffins!

Freshly baked

Next time I want to try variations and see what happens by adding sausage or bacon and maybe some tomatoes!

Soooo good. Dip in marinara sauce!

Mini Pepperoni Pizza Muffins

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (preferably whole but I used lowfat)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups pepperoni slices (chopped up)
  • 1 jar of your favorite marinara sauce
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and combine the dry ingredients. Whisk in 2 eggs.
Shred the cheese, chop the pepperoni, and add them to the mixture. Stir together.
Grease your pan and divide the mixture evenly. If you are using mini-loaf pans, they will bake about 45 minutes.  I used a cupcake pan to bake these – they took about 20-25 minutes at the same temperature. Use a toothpick to make sure the centers are cooked through
Let them cool for a couple of minutes and serve with warm marinara sauce!
