Pizza Muffins

I rarely share recipes on this blog, because well, let's face it...
I'm not a great cook. 
But every now and then I find a recipe that I try that is worth sharing and this is one of those. 
Excuse my non-fancy shmancy picture as well, I take pictures about as good as I cook.

I made my mother's breadstick recipe...

1 Tablespoon Yeast
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 1/2 Cups Warm Water
Dissolve these 3 ingredients together and let yeast start to activate.
In a large bowl, add:
4 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
Add your "yeast mixture" to flour and mix.
*add a little more flour if dough is sticky

Then I sprinkled flour on my counter(you can do this on a cutting board as well) & I rolled the dough out into a rectangle...
Spread pizza sauce over dough(we used white sauce which is why you can't see it!)
then add whatever pizza toppings you'd like!
We chose pepperoni's & olives...
Oh and of course Mozzarella cheese! Then start on one side & ROLL up your dough(like you are making cinnamon rolls!)...
Cut "rolls" about 1 inch thick...
and place in a greased muffin tin! It made exactly 24 "muffins" cutting them at that thickness. You could do bigger or smaller! Don't worry about them looking PRETTY:)
Then I let them RAISE for about 30 minutes or so, until they started puffing up out of the pan.
I might have let them raise even longer, if my hubby wasn't almost home from work;)
Bake at 400 degrees for 14 minutes or until golden brown & ENJOY!!!
They were DELICIOUS & the leftovers were just as good the next day!

*Next time I make these, I will split the dough in half and make 2 different kinds of "pizza" in each muffin tin. I think I will try a Buffalo Wing Sauce & Chicken one next, just for my husband!

If you are intimidated by "making your own dough"...use you could do the same thing with store bought dough or crescent rolls!

My family loves homemade pizza, so we have it a lot. This would be a fun change! Thanks!

That is a really cute idea. I'm sure you got it from pinterest?! :)

We do family pizza night every Sat. night and this will be a fun new twist to it. Thanks for sharing, can't wait to try it.

That's an awesome idea! And it would be less messy than a slice of pizza for the kids. Knowing how your mom cooks, I think I'll definitely keep this recipe. :)

I mean keep the breadstick recipe. I'm definitely loving the idea of pizza rolls that you came up with!!

I never thought of rolling it up like cinnamon rolls! What a good idea!
