Book Club: Pizza Muffins

This month for book club our theme was pregnancy cravings! Our hostess noted that one of our members might be a 'Gone Girl' with her new baby so we should have cravings at the gathering, also a loosely veiled way of getting what she wants because she told us she was pregnant too!! Our other member had her baby on Saturday morning and he is seriously adorable. Back to the muffins!

These are based off the Rachel Ray Recipe and from this blog. I was in such a hurry to bake these and run out the door I don't have a picture of my own! I actually doubled this recipe for a regular 12 cup muffin pan and had maybe two muffins worth left.

Pizza Muffins

3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
3/4 cup whole milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup cubed pepperoni
1/2 cup store-bought pizza sauce

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, salt and red pepper flakes (if using) ; whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella, Parmesan and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.

Stir the batter and divide among the muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 25-28 minutes.

Meanwhile, microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.

These are so good and I really crave them every once in a while, I usually have all these ingredients but pepperoni and they are so good even without it!
