Course: Dinner, Lunch
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12 cupcakes
Author: Gemma Stafford
  • 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
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F (190oC) and liberally grease a muffin time with olive oil.
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, herbs and salt
  3. Next whisk in the milk and eggs until combined

  4. 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.
  5. Lastly top with a few mini pepperonis. Repeat the process until you've filled all 12 cupcakes
  6. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the remaining batter on the top of each pizza cupcake
  7. Top each pizza cupcake with as much additional cheese and pepperoni as you'd like
  8. Bake until lightly browned and puffed, about 20-25 minutes. Enjoy immediately!
