Pizza Never Looked So Scrumptious

This recipe will make up to 18 tasty pizza bites, leaving you to choose whether to portion them throughout the workweek or share with the roomies. Whichever you decide, these little delights are bound to make a monthly, if not, weekly reappearance.

Each mouthful of these unique morsels will be flavor-packed. Thanks to savory mozzarella cheese, minced garlic, chopped pepperoni, and a bit of crushed red pepper flakes – it just isn’t pizza without the crushed red pepper. All of these ingredients get bound together with three large eggs and mixed into a thick batter. After, you divide them into muffin cups and bake them off until their tops are golden brown.

Enjoy them right out of the oven or wait till they’ve cooled down. Serve with hot marinara sauce and you’re good to go! We’ll warn you though, these pizza bites will smell so good coming out of the oven, that waiting will be a challenge.
