Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 1 package mini pepperoni, divided
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 12 teaspoons pizza sauce

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  • Chop ¾ of the mini pepperoni into ¼-inch pieces and set aside.
  • Combine the flour, garlic salt, onion powder, oregano, baking powder, and grated parmesan cheese in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the milk, egg, melted butter, and half the package of chopped pepperoni to the batter and stir to combine. Note that the batter will be runny.
  • Spray a regular-sized 12-serving muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • Fill the bottom of the muffin pan ¼ of the way full with batter, then sprinkle 1 tablespoon of shredded cheddar cheese in the middle.
  • Add more batter on top of the cheese, filling it only about ¾ of the way full.
  • Add a dollop of pizza sauce on the top, sprinkle with more cheddar, and add mini pepperoni. Then press ingredients down into batter just a bit.
  • Bake at 375°F for 20 to 22 minutes, depending on how hot your oven runs.
  • Let the muffins rest in the muffin tin for 5 minutes before removing them.

Notes

  • If you are using a jumbo muffin tray, you will get 6 pizza muffins out of this recipe.
  • The batter will be runny, this is normal!
  • When baking, the muffins will form into a dome, so you want to be careful to not overfill or you'll have a mess on your hands.
