Pizza Muffins | Savory Muffins

How many likes for pizzzzaaaa??I know there are lot many including me.How about a pizza muffins or muffins that taste with the flavors of pizza?? Sounds interesting,ryt?Though I have tried making pizza at home(listed below) but this is a much simpler recipe and is a bit different from the actual pizza.Kids will love these smaller individual portions and this recipe makes it easier for large gatherings or kids play dates.This definitely is a crowd pleaser when topped with pizza sauce.Try out these small pops & Enjoy !!
