Homemade Pizza Muffins: Ready to Eat in 30 Minutes!

Are your kids always starving after school? Surprise them with these adorably delicious, pop in your mouth homemade pizza muffins.

My kids love these homemade pizza muffins and the funny part about it is, they happened on a fluke. They wanted pizza one night and I really just didn’t want to make homemade pizza from scratch.

So, instead, I mixed up a batch of pizza dough and placed little balls of dough into my muffin pans. Then, I poured on a little some and sprinkled on some cheese before baking.

They came out DELICIOUS and the kids have begged for them over and over again ever since. And honestly, I kinda like them myself.

These muffins are perfectly poppable and would make a great lunch for school, too!

So, the next time your kiddos are screaming for pizza, make a batch of these Homemade Pizza Muffins instead of rushing for delivery!
