Savoury pepperoni and cheese muffins

My youngest daughter is not a "baker" and pretty much would prefer not to have to be in the kitchen when cooking is involved. However, this simple and tasty recipe piqued her interest and she helped me make a batch in less than 30 minutes. The muffins can be made in advance and frozen for an easy and tasty lunch - the taste of pizza that kids (and adults) love, without the added processed food ingredients.

This recipe makes 10 to 12 medium sized muffins or 6-8 larger ones.

      Hi peachpurple - thanks for the comment. In fact those cute little cups are re-usable silicone which makes cleaning up a snap:-)
