Pizza Muffins

For an in between snack, a side-dish or to fill a school lunch box these pizza muffins have an ideal serving form and size.

Pizzas have conquered the world for a long time in many different shapes and sizes. There are the traditional round pizzas that can be found everywhere, square pizzas which we make at home due to convenience and pizza bread which makes a great snack. Pizza pockets which are also known as pizza calzones are popular in our family for picnics. For school lunch boxes we prefer the more bite size variation of pizzettes, a slice of pizza roll or a pizza muffin.
