How to make pizza cupcakes

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Spray 8 muffin cups with canola spray

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Get creative with these pizza cupcakes. This is a great way to get your kids in the kitchen and trying new foods. Let your kids make a couple of pizza cupcakes so they can try new flavors and toppings. 
  • I love using mini pepperonis. If you can’t find these you can cut bigger pieces into fourths. 
  • Swap out the pizza sauce for pesto or even BBQ sauce to make more great flavored pizzas. 
  • Be sure to remove them from the pan right away to prevent sticking. 
  • This recipe is great for a crowd. You can easily double or triple this recipe to make as many as you would like.

Storage

Fridge

Who doesn’t love leftover pizza? You will want to store any leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container. These will last for up to 3 days. 

These make for a great option to throw in your kid’s lunchboxes for them to take to school.
