Easy one-bowl Savoury Pizza Muffins, perfect for the kids’ lunch boxes or as an afternoon snack!


  • 2 medium eggs
  • 150ml / 1/2 cup milk
  • 75g  / 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp red pesto
  • 150g / 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 150g / 1 & 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 75g / 2 & 1/2 oz pepperoni, chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 250g / 2 cups self raising flour


  1. Preheat the oven to 180c / 350f and line a muffin tray with 12 muffin cases.
  2. Add the egg, milk and melted butter to a large bowl. Whisk gently with a fork.
  3. Add the red pesto, grated cheese, cherry tomatoes, pepperoni, spring onion and oregano and mix again.
  4. Finally add the flour and mix just enough until all the ingredients have combined.
  5. Divide the mixture between the 12 muffin cases. I find it much easier to use an ice cream scoop to do this.
  6. Bake the muffins in the oven for 20-25 minutes until a skewer stuck in the middle comes out dry.


These muffins will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days. They can also be frozen and defrosted at room temperature.
