  • You have a lot of freedom with these! Feel free to add veggies or other favorite pizza toppings to the muffin batter to make your favorite pizza flavor.
  • These store great in the fridge for up to 5 days and they reheat well. My kids also didn't mind them cold with their packed lunches.
  • These make a great side for soups as you would grilled cheese.
