Pizza Cupcakes - everything you love about pizza but in a cupcake!!

Hi Bold Bakers!

As you have seen on Bigger Bolder Baking before, pizza comes in all different shapes and sizes around here. This recipe might actually blow your mind because these are Pizza Cupcakes! Yes, you read that right. It’s a pizza masquerading as a cupcake but it’s still a pizza.

It has all the components that you love about pizza: sauce, mozzarella, herbs and pepperoni. All of these ingredients are held together by a savory cupcake. It’s a very basic dough that is soft and almost spongy, which is perfect to soak up tomato sauce. Imagine what a biscuit would be like with all of those toppings and that’s pretty much what you are getting.

If pepperoni isn’t your jam then feel free to add in your favorite pizza toppings like olives, mushrooms, or pesto. Think of these cupcakes as a blank canvas on which you have creative license to go nuts!

Author: Gemma Stafford
Servings: 12 cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups (7 1/2 oz/225g) Plain/AP flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups (12oz/360ml) milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup (4oz/120g) store-bought pizza sauce or my homemade pizza sauce
  • 1 cup (8oz/240g) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup (2oz/60g) mini pepperoni or cooked sausage

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375F (190oC) and liberally grease a muffin time with olive oil.
  • In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, herbs and salt
  • Next whisk in the milk and eggs until combined
  • Add about 2 tablespoons of batter to each cupcake then add a layer of cheese followed by sauce, then cheese again. This will insure the sauce staying in the center the cupcake.
  • Lastly top with a few mini pepperonis. Repeat the process until you've filled all 12 cupcakes
  • Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the remaining batter on the top of each pizza cupcake
  • Top each pizza cupcake with as much additional cheese and pepperoni as you'd like
  • Bake until lightly browned and puffed, about 20-25 minutes. Enjoy immediately!

This looks great! I am planning to freeze these. At what temperature and how long do I reheat them in the oven? Thank you!

This was dubbed a “Keeper recipe” by my kids and several neighbors asked for a copy of the recipe. I have enjoyed all of your recipes and they are so easy to follow! Thank yoy.

Hello Gemma!

These turned out great! Thank you for the recipe. However, since I have friends who are allergic to egg, will it be alright if I use Yogurt instead (as you have shared on your website)? Furthermore, if so, may I use Greek Yogurt instead of the regular Yogurt? Thank you so much for your time and have a great day ahead!
