Pizza Muffins is my recipe of the day with the blogging group Muffin Monday. We post on the last Monday of  the month with our best and latest recipes for muffins.

This month I am sharing my recipe for pizza muffins. It is my reworking of an old recipe I made for pepperoni  muffins that in the end weren’t pizza enough.

I have jacked these so full of pizza deliciousness this time to make sure I didn’t miss. But sometimes, the best laid plans…

These  particular muffins are my unlucky duckies.  Nothing wrong with the recipe. It’s just that they had been scheduled  to publish twice before and both times something came up and I had to postpone it. But you know, they say third time’s a charm, right?

And now they are charmingly cheesy, with just enough meat to keep my meat-eaters happy. I may try something later on  with mushrooms, as I am getting to like making these little dainties packed with pizza.

It’s not exactly a romantic tea party tray item, but maybe with some iced tea.  I do love drinking tea with lemon. And the hubs can just grab a beer.
