Home Cookin': Pizza Muffins

I'm all for trying any recipe that can make the lunch routine easier. So when I stumbled upon this recipe for pizza muffins, I decided to make them with my 4-year-old son, Theo, before the school week got underway.

The prep was easy, and the savory muffins that resulted were a huge success. Served with a side of pizza sauce for dipping, they made a great packed lunch for both Theo and his big sister, Mira, 7. Next time, I'll make a double batch.

Pizza Muffins (makes about 16 mini muffins)
(adapted from Recipe4Living)

3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
pinch of salt
3/4 cup milk (I used 2%)
1 egg, beaten
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup pizza sauce

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a mini-muffin pan.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning and salt.

Whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella and Parmesan. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

Serve with a small cup of pizza sauce for dipping.
