Little morsels of pleasure… the video recipe for pizza muffins!

Pizza Muffins

Pizza muffins are an inviting appetizer that marries a classic of Italian cuisine with one of Anglo-Saxon cuisine.

These pizza muffins are not only delicious, but thanks to the use of instant yeast, they don't even require waiting for leavening. Mozzarella contains a lot of liquids, so we recommend letting it drain for a few minutes and squeezing it well (or using a more practical mozzarella for pizza ).

Furthermore, you can also fill the muffins with other cheeses, for example you can use provola, and add salami to your taste. Are you ready to cook? In addition to all the steps we also have our video recipe that will help you prepare.

Preparation of pizza muffins

1. Start by cutting the mozzarella into small cubes and set it aside (if you use the fresh one, put it to drain in a colander so that it loses some of its liquids).

Season tomato

2. Pour the peeled tomatoes into a bowl and break them up, alternatively give them a few very light strokes with the hand blender. Season them with 15 g of oil, salt, pepper and oregano. Mix well.
3. Preheat the oven to 180°C .

Create dough

4. In a bowl, sift the flour and instant yeast for savory pies very well . Add 200 ml of water, 20 g of EVO oil and a pinch of sugar
5. Knead first in the bowl, and when the dough takes consistency pour it on the work surface. Add a teaspoon of salt and work with your hands until you have a soft and elastic dough .

Cut dough into 8 equal parts

6. Divide the dough into eight equal parts , you can help yourself using a scale.

Stuff the dough and close it

7. With your hands, roll out each ball to form a small pizza and stuff it in the center with a little of the previously seasoned tomato and a few cubes of mozzarella. Reform the ball making sure that the filling remains inside

8. Take a muffin mold and put a paper cup in each mold. Place each filled ball in a pirotino. To get the explosion effect, place the part of the ball with the closure facing up . Garnish the top of each ball of dough with a dash of tomato and a few more cubes of mozzarella.
9. Put the muffin mold in the oven and cook for 30 minutes (there may be some variations in the times but it depends a lot on the power of your oven). Remove from the oven, let it cool slightly and serve while still hot.

We recommend keeping these bites for a maximum of 2 days in a cool, dry place and putting them in the oven for a few minutes so that the cheese melts well (inside and out). We do not recommend freezing in the freezer.
