Dive into our easy-to-follow recipe for Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Muffins, a perfect blend of pizza flavors in a muffin form. Ideal for snack time or parties!


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 Tsp garlic salt
  • 2 Tsp onion powder
  • 1 Tsp oregano
  • 2 Tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp salted butter, melted
  • 1 5-ounce package mini pepperoni, divided
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • 4 Tbsp pizza sauce


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Chop 3/4 of the mini pepperoni into 1/4″ pieces and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, garlic salt, onion powder, oregano, baking powder, and grated Parmesan cheese.
  4. Stir in milk, eggs, melted butter, and half the package of chopped pepperoni until the batter is well combined. It will be slightly runny.
  5. Spray a 6-serving muffin tin with cooking spray. (The recipe can be doubled for a 12-muffin tin.)
  6. Fill each muffin cup ¼ way full with batter, add 1 Tbsp shredded cheddar in the middle, then cover with more batter until ¾ full.
  7. Top with a dollop of pizza sauce, more cheddar, and mini pepperoni pieces. Press the toppings slightly into the batter.
  8. Bake for 20-22 minutes, until the muffins form a dome and are cooked through.
  9. Let the muffins rest in the tin for 5 minutes before removing.


For best results, ensure your ingredients are at room temperature before starting. This helps the batter mix more evenly, resulting in fluffier muffins. When filling the muffin cups, be sure to distribute the batter and fillings evenly to ensure each muffin is perfectly sized and has an equal amount of the delicious fillings.
