Easy Healthier Pizza Muffins
We love to make these on the fly when we want a healthier alternative to pizza. You still get all the pizza flavors but you know what’s going into it and the only regret you will have is not DOUBLING the recipe! These are perfect for lunch meal prep, eating with soup or on-the-go breakfast/snacking.
The beauty of this recipe is the simplicity. You probably have these ingredients on hand. If the mini pepperonis are missing, you can always sub in some cooked and chopped up bacon or sausage in its place. Or just leave out the meat components all together.
I’ve made these with oat flour and regular all purpose flour and both have turned out perfect. I’m definitely trying almond flour next with adding an additional egg to the recipe for extra binding.

Easy Healthier Pizza Muffins

- 1/2 tsp each garlic powder, onion powder, chili pepper flakes, dried oregano + salt
- 1½ cups milk of choice
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella
- 1/3 cup grated parmesan
- 2/3 cup breadcrumbs
- 5 oz mini pepperonis (or 6 strips bacon, cooked + chopped)
- Preheat oven to 375℉. Spray a 12 slotted muffin tray with olive oil.
- In one large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and all of the seasonings. Add in the milk and eggs and mix together until combined. Lastly fold in the mozzarella, parmesan, breadcrumbs and mini pepperonis. Scoop this into your muffin slots and bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Could I use yogurt instead of milk???
Hi LInda – I haven’t tried it with yogurt but it might work. Maybe a little water to thin out the batter if too thick in appearance…
Hi, are the bread crumbs necessary and have you tried it with almond flour yet?
Looks amazing! Could I use yogurt instead of milk???
I love your post! I’m so glad I found your instagram page! Your food is amazing! How many calories in one pizza cup? 213 calories?
Hi Valeria, thank you so much for the kind message – I’m glad you’re here too! Yes – the nutritional info listed is per muffin!
looks awesome! what can I replace the egg with?
Hi Angelica! Thanks so much – I’m thinking a couple of flax eggs will work here!
Looks so delicious!!!! Can I sub with almond flour?
Hi Dana, maybe partial sub with almond flour and some coconut flour and also add an additional egg in too – I haven’t tried it so I cannot say for sure, but this is what I would do
Can oat fiber be substituted for the oat flour? I really want to try this recipe but eat a low carb diet. All your recipes look so delish that I can’t wait to try them.
HI DD, thanks so much, I haven’t used oat fiber so I can’t say for sure. If you have used it in other baking recipes and it can be subbed for all purpose flour, then it should work here too….
Hi! The nutrition chart is for un muffin or how is the serving counted??
