muffin pizzas

Breakfast muffins can go a long way

Most people I know find comfort in pizza. It's the easiest thing to get when your experimental pot roast dinner goes wrong, or when the romantic steak dinner you planned on impressing a date with gets as tough as a brick.

I love me a good pizza, especially when it's homemade. I know someone who makes really good homemade pizzas. His pizza base is my idea of perfect: thin but strong enough to hold generous toppings, crispy/crunchy on the outside but still chewy enough to not give you a toothache. He also introduced me to muffin pizzas which are possibly the best snack things in the world.

What you'll need:

  • 2 breakfast muffins
  • Tomato/pasta sauce
  • Grated mature cheddar or you can choose a soft cheese like boursin or marscapone
  • Your choice of toppings.

Slice each muffin in three parts. Slather each slice with tomato/pasta sauce. If you're using a soft cheese, mix it first with the sauce before spreading on to the muffin. Add your toppings. Place slices on a greaseproof flat tray and place in a preheated oven (Gas Mark 5) for three to five minutes, depending on how crunchy you want the base. If you want to put more cheese on top, make sure you add the cheese a minute before the muffins are done.

See? So easy to make! And when you can't be bothered to call delivery or when you don't have enough cash in your stash this is the next best thing.. possibly even better than the best as it's less greasy! Try it with your favourite toppings. Mine are shrimp, chopped garlic, mushrooms and crabstick.
