Pepperoni Pizza Muffins
3/4 c flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 TBSP Italian seasoning
pinch of salt
pinch of red pepper flakes
3/4 c milk
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 c shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 c grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup sliced pepperoni (quartered)
Preheat oven to 375°. Grease mini-muffin cup pan.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, salt and red pepper flakes. Mix in the milk and egg. Stir in mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, and pepperoni.
Let stand 10 minutes.
Stir batter and pour into muffin cups. Bake 20-25 minutes.
Serve with marinara sauce of your choice.
Comments from the cook: I made these into full-size muffins (instead of minis) and the recipe made 12 muffins. I baked them for about 25 minutes, and they were perfect.
The original version of this recipe (by Rachael Ray, apparently) did not call for salt or red pepper flakes...but the version I used had them, and I thought they tasted great!
