“These muffins are seriously incredible and addictive. It took me a few tries until I found a perfect muffin-like crusty dough for these awesome pizzas. The dough turned out so fluffy and fun to work with. Pretty quick and easy, the only part that takes time is the rising process, which is about 30 minutes. All in all, you and your kids will love them, trust me!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the cup of warm water with the sugar and dry yeast. Let stand 10 to 14 minutes.
  3. Add the butter, salt and flour. Stir well, turn out and knead until dough is smooth. Cover and allow to rise in a warm place. Punch down and allow to rise again.
  4. Cut dough into small-meduim sized balls, place each ball on oiled muffin tins, punch the ball with your thumb and spread the edges of the ball around the muffin tins to make a hollow muffin cup shape. Let rise again, press the edges to make sure they stick to their muffin cup figure.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes or until slightly golden. Bring out of the oven.
  6. Press top of puffed muffins with the back of a spoon to create a slight dent. Spread the sauce and cheese or any other topping you have in mind. Bake until cheese is melted. Tada!
