food blog I stumbled upon a while back had inspired me to experiment and create my own version of Mini-Pizza Bites.
All done within 40 minutes, I adapted the recipe a little. I have since made a few versions of this which had included a batch with tuna, another batch with smoked turkey as well as an all-vegetarian pizza bites.
Here’s a warning: These can be quite addictive!
Pizza Bites in a mini-muffin tray before going into the over
3/4 cup flour 3/4 tspn baking powder 2 tbsp Italian seasoning (the original version used 1) A pinch of salt 3/4 cup whole milk 1 egg, lightly beaten 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese Half a cup grated Parmesan cheese 1 cup cubed smoked turkey (or canned tuna or leave out any meat if you are going for vegetarian version) 1 jar of store-bought salsa sauce(I couldn’t find pizza sauce!)
Pre-heat oven to 180 degree celsius. Grease the mini-muffin pan. In a large bowl, mix (sifted) flour, baking powder. Italian seasoning and salt together. Whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella, Parmesan, cubed smoked turkey and about 4-5 tablespoon of Salsa sauce Let stand for 10 minutes. Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin tray. Top about a teaspoon of the leftover salsa sauce on top of each batter on the mini-muffin tray. Then top it up again with mozzarella and Parmesan (if desired) Bake till puffed, golden and a little crispy, 20-25 minutes Serve when ready.
