Bake Pizza Muffins

What You Need:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon each of dried basil and oregano
  • ¾ cup pasta sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella or provolone cheese
  • Additional toppings, such as diced olives, green onions, or mushrooms
  • Mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Spatula
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Muffin tins
  • Vegetable oil for greasing the tins
  • Paper towel

What You Do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Invite your child to practice healthy habits and wash her hands before handling food. Then show him how to whisk together the egg, milk, and vegetable oil in a bowl.
  3. Now he can get out the measuring spoons and add the basil, oregano, salt, sugar, baking soda, and baking powder – that’s a lot of measuring, which encourages your child’s math skills and culinary abilities! He can use the whisk to incorporate all the ingredients.
  4. Next, he can add the flour and give everything a good stir using the spatula.
  5. Now he can gently fold in ½ cup of the pasta sauce, leaving ¼ cup for topping her pizza muffins. He can also carefully fold in ¾ cup of the shredded cheese, leaving ¼ cup for the topping.
  6. Invite your child to ready the muffin tins by coating them with a drizzle of oil. He can use a paper towel to evenly distribute the oil in the muffin tins.
  7. Now he can scoop some muffin dough into each of the muffin tins, leaving a bit of room at the top for her additional toppings.
  8. Along with adding a dollop more of pasta sauce and some shredded cheese for each pizza muffin, your child can also chop and add a sprinkling of olives, green onion, or mushrooms – whatever he likes!
  9. Bake the muffins for 20 minutes or until they are golden brown.
