Awesome food from a tiny kitchen in Brooklyn

Pizza Muffins

Adapted from Noble Pig.

I’m the kind of lazy twentysomething who likes lunch food I can simply throw into a bag when I’m getting ready for work, and that’s exactly what this is.

Since I was looking for a substantial lunchy side dish, and not an adorable little hors-d’oeuvre, I doubled the recipe.  The ingredients are pretty basic: flour, baking powder, oregano, milk, eggs, cheese, and pepperoni.  The pasta sauce is really just a dip.

First you mix the powder ingredients; then you whisk in the egg and milk; and finally mix in the cheese and chopped pepperoni.  Is there anything easier than this recipe?  Probably not.  Maybe grilled cheese, I dunno.

Then you scoop it into a greased muffin tin, pop it in a 400F oven for 20 minutes, and the rest is history.  Are you kidding me?  Are we done?  Did I just make that?  What just happened?  I was sitting here and all of a sudden there was delicious food in front of me.  Cooking is magic.
