Pizza Muffin Bread

Have you heard of pizza muffins. Pizza yes, muffins yes.. but them together? Interesting right? I might have seen something similar savory bread, but hadn't tasted it. So when I saw this on my blog hop partner Rajani's of My Kitchen Trials I wanted to try that. It looked really soft and spongy. Verdict! They came out really nice. House smelled like baking a pizza, it tasted like a pizza only it was shaped like a muffin. They were quite filling and satisfying.

I made quite a few changes, baked it eggless with more veggies and multigrain flour. It was denser than her version of recipe, which was expected coz of the multigrain flour. Also, these can be put in a bread pan and be made into bread loaf. I prepared my usual pizza sauce to go with these. And they matched perfectly!! Here is a rundown on the recipe.

Prep Time: 15 min| Cooking Time: 30 min| Makes: 12 Muffins


Flour - 2 cups ( I used 1 - multigrain and 1 - AP flour)
Baking Powder - 2 tsp.
Baking Soda – ½  tsp.
Yogurt – ½ cup
Cheese - 1 cup (I used Mozzarella)
Italian seasoning - 1 tsp.
Olive Oil - 2 tbsp.
Onion - 1 medium - Finely chopped
Tomato - 2 small - cubed
Bell Pepper - 1/2 - Cubed
Spinach - 1 cup - Washed & chopped
Salt - 1 tsp.
Water - 1 cup

All veggies ready to be mixed
Pizza dough ready

Method of Preparation:

~ Preheat the oven to 400 deg. Fahrenheit.
~ Spray/ Grease 12 cup muffin tray. I used olive oil spray so that the taste is not altered.
~ Heat a pan and with little or no oil fry onion and capsicum.
~ When they are little soft, switch off the heat. Add spinach, tomatoes, salt and Italian herbs.
~ In a big bowl, sieve flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add cheese, yogurt, olive oil and the vegetable mix.
~ Add water and gently mix everything together.
~ Now using an ice-cream scooper or a big ladle, spoon into prepared muffin tin.
~ Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.
~ Serve these yummy savory muffins with pizza sauce or ketchup.
