Pepperoni Pizza Muffins & happy birthday michelle

I saw an infographic on pinterest for these Pepperoni Pizza Muffins, or whatever they called them.  The link did not go to an actual recipe…I hate that!  So I basically just followed the pictures and this is what I ended up with…..

Okay I have to admit, it was not rocket science!  I made some pizza dough, basically made a pizza…rolled it up like cinnamon rolls, sliced it, let it rise…and baked it like muffins.  Voila!

If you’re wondering what that white plastic looking square is on the fourth picture, it is mozzarella cheese!  I grabbed the wrong package at the store, and ended up with a “sheet” of mozzarella cheese.  I had no idea that they sold it that way!  It was a bit too thick and didn’t roll up very well, so I do not recommend buying it to make these muffins. 🙂

Some of you might recognize this collage and recipe… was a guest post over at Mom’s Test Kitchen last summer.  Anything that could possibly go wrong while making these, did!  I bought the wrong cheese.  I bought the packed/roll of pizza dough to make them even easier.  When I got home, it was nowhere to be found… I had to make pizza dough really quick to put these together.  That is how easy these are to make!  I faked my way through the entire process 😉

Even with all of the chaos, they were delicious!  The kids absolutely loved them.  I might even try some other flavors in the future…just for fun!

Speaking of pizza, one of the highlights of my trip to California last month…..was this Me-N-Ed’s Pizza…..

Me N Eds Pizza

You may have seen this picture on Instagram 🙂  I grew up eating at Me-N-Ed’s, so it is always on my list of things to do when I go back home…I just love it! 🙂  Now if I could just recreate that crust at home!!!

If you have a Trader Joe’s where you live (I do not), pizza pairs perfectly with this wine…..

Dearly Beloved Wine

“Dearly Beloved… I Thee Red”.  Yes, I pick my wines by the pretty designs on the bottle.  The fact that it was so incredibly cheap, made it even better! 🙂  Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Michelle! 🙂

    Your pepperoni pizza rolls are really cute – they would make a great appetizer for a party and they seem easy to boot! I didn’t know they made sheets of cheese either which is really interesting.

    Can one use the canned pizza dough, like Pillsbury makes? Also, dumb question: What do you mean by the “narrow end” of a circle? Thanks. I want to try these! 🙂
