Pizza Muffins – Cookies and Cups


Pizza Muffins! Your family will love this quick meal…add in your favorite pizza toppings to make it your own!

I am always on the hunt for new dinner ideas. Things that are easy, that my family will love. My boys have fully begun their spring sports schedule, so that means dinners most nights are either at 3:30, at 9:00 or eaten in the car. I am basically trying to figure out how to turn after school snacks into full meals.

Which brings me to today’s recipe. Pizza Muffins.These are so super simple, starting with canned biscuits…and you can actually add in whatever toppings your kids like!

Start by rolling out the biscuits and pressing them into a greased muffin tin…

I went ahead and made a quick garlic butter to brush the biscuits with…

because, well, GARLIC BUTTER!

I just figured an extra layer of flavor couldn’t hurt anyone!

Brush the butter onto the dough…

Meanwhile make a quick meat sauce. I just used ground beef, cooked with some diced onion, and garlic. I stirred in some pizza sauce and then chopped up some pepperoni and mixed that in too!
