How to Make Pizza Muffins

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Grease the muffin tray lightly with cooking spray.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, yeast and salt together and mix well. Whisk in ½ cup warm water and knead until it forms a dough. Dust some flour on a flat clean surface and knead for another 5-10 minutes until it is sticky and soft. The consistency should be as such that the dough should be able to spring back when touched or poked.
  4. Roll out the pizza dough until it is half an inch thick.
  5. Take a 3 inch cookie cutter and cut 12 circles. Roll these circles again and place them at the bottom of the muffin tray.
  6. Spread the pizza sauce on the pizza circles and also on the sides of the cup lining.
  7. Sprinkle in the mozzarella cheese equally in all the cups.
  8. Place a basil leaf on each of the muffin cup along with cherry tomato halves.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes until the muffins rise and cheese melted.
  10. Let it stand for 5-10 minutes.
  11. Serve and enjoy!
