adventures in cooking

Tonight I tried out a recipe for pizza muffins (below). I was out of pepperoni so in an attempt to give it more taste added a bit of the pizza sauce to the batter in an effort not just to make cheesey biscuits. Because I don't cook much I didn't realize this would make it too moist. So for me it was a bit of a failure.

That said, the muffin tops were really tasy, and the recipe itself was easy enough for even a kitchen klutz for me to try. I think it would have worked really well if I hadn't fiddled around with it. In case anyone else wants to give it a try...

Pizza Muffins

3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
4 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
4 oz turkey pepperoni, diced
3/4 cup milk, 2%
1 egg, lightly beaten

1/2 cup pizza sauce
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and oregano. Whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella and pepperoni and let stand for a few minutes.
Stir the batter and divide evenly among the muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, about 18 to 23 minutes.
Warm pizza sauce in the microwave for about 15 seconds or heat on the stove in a small sauce pan. Serve the muffins with the pizza sauce for dipping.
