Easy Pizza Muffins

Pizza is not always easy for all bakers, especially if it is an amateur holding the spatula. But there are times that you could probably say you can do this just like this easy (as claimed by Laura from My little gourmet) stuffed muffin pizza. Make 12 muffins from this recipe.

Ingredients:
1 batch of pizza dough, store-bought or home-made
1 cup/250ml pizza sauce
1 cup/100g shredded mozzarella cheese
Handful of mini pepperoni slices, I just sliced up 5 mini Salamis
½ green bell pepper, chopped

Directions:
  1. Pre-heat the oven following the directions for your pizza dough.
  2. Spread out the dough and cover with the sauce, leaving about an inch (2.5cm) without sauce around the edges.
  3. Cut the dough in half and cover each half with cheese and the desired toppings.
  4. Roll up each half starting with the cut side.
  5. Slice off pieces about 1.5 in or 4 cm in size (I got 6 slices per half), and place them into a greased muffin pan with swirled side up.
  6. Top each muffin with some more cheese and pepperoni slices if you like.
  7. Bake according to your pizza dough instructions, checking the muffins at about 14 minutes (mine baked for 20 minutes) and remove from oven when golden brown on top.
  8. Allow to cool for a few minutes and then use a knife to separate the muffins from the pan.
