Pizza Muffins

Your family will think you are baking pizza when they walk in the door to the smell of these savoury muffins. The toppings you would put on top of a pizza crust are chopped up fine and stirred into a batter, then baked in muffin tins.

Filling Ingredients:
3/4 cups chopped pepperoni
1/2 cup chopped ham
10 oz can mushrooms, drained and chopped (optional)
1 green or red pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 cup shredded marble cheese
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
1/4 tsp dried chillies

Dough Ingredients:
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup canola oil
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder

Method:
  1. Stir together all filling ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and oil. Pour this over filling and stir well.
  3. Combine flour and baking powder and add to mixture. Stir to blend well.
  4. Spoon into lightly greased muffin tins.
  5. Bake 20-25 minutes @375ยบ or until lightly browned. Serve hot or cold.
  6. Store in fridge or freezer. Yields 1 dozen muffins.
