These easy pizza cupcakes are gonna be a hit with the kids. You can use them as an appetizer, a snack, a lunch, a dinner, or as a side dish. They work for just about anything. I like the idea of a savory version of something that is usually sweet.
The only reason these are called cupcakes is because of their shape. They are made in a muffin tin. You could call them muffins, but I like that they are called cupcakes.
They have a base batter type dough. It is made from flour, baking powder, milk, salt, and eggs. There is also some Italian seasoning mix in there to to bring that pizza flavor. The dough itself has more of a muffin consistency.
Once you have the dough, you are going to make layeres in each muffin cup. You add a little dough into each muffin cup followed by some cheese and the pizza sauce. You repeat the layers and then top each cupcake with mini pepperonis or sausage crumbles.
Serve these easy pizza cupcakes with extra pizza sauce on the side. Then you can dip the cupcakes in the sauce for even more pizza flavor. I like the added sauce but it isn’t necessary.Print
