Easy pizza muffin recipe that are great school lunch and easy to make as a quick snack. Adapted from My Little Gourmet
- 1 Pizza Dough 13.8 oz (I used a Pillsbury whole grain version) or homemade dough
- 1 cup Pizza Sauce
- 3/4 cup Mini Pepperoni (or any pizza toppings your kids love)
- 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese
Serve when cool or freeze for later in an airtight container or bag. I pack lunches the night before, so I’ll just take a couple from the freezer, place in the fridge with the rest of the lunch items and they will be all ready to go in the morning.
Pair one or two pizza muffins with your kiddo’s favorite fruits or veggies and you have a quick and fun lunch. Keep this recipe in mind for a great, simple party appetizer as well – perfect football watching food.
