Pizza Muffins

I discovered an interesting looking recipe in the March 2013 edition of Canadian Living magazine: Pizza Muffins! It looked simple enough to make and something my daughter could help me make.

My kids love pizza so I was curious to see what they would think of their favourite food in a muffin form. It was a hit! These muffins smell just like pizza fresh out of the oven.

I love that you can change up the toppings depending on your taste preferences. I think next time we make them we will add in some bacon and mushroom.
