The title of the post itself is very catchy, especially to kids and adults who love pizza. That is what drew me to making these cheesy and delicious pizza muffins for this month’s ‘Home Baker’s Challenge‘. I’ve missed couple of challenges due to many reasons, but when I saw Priya’s savory bakes and these pizza muffins, I had to bake them.
Both my kids love pizza, so this was an obvious choice for me. These muffins have all the flavors of a pizza — basil, cheese and pizza sauce. You can add any vegetable that you like on your pizza to the batter to make the muffins taste just like your favorite pizza. My super picky son likes onions, tomatoes and corn (he recently added spinach to that list), so added some corn to the batter. I think the next time, I’m going to add some caramelized onions to give some more flavor to the muffins.
Original recipe used 4 egg whites, but I subbed that with some egg replacer whisked with water. Also if you don’t have Greek yogurt, then simply use 1 cup regular plain yogurt. Serve these muffins with some extra pizza sauce on the side.
