Vegetarian Savoury Muffins, made with semolina, vegetables and cheese are perfect to have in breakfast or any other time of the day,

I love calling them Pizza cupcakes because of two reasons. The first is that it has everything that is there in a pizza (except yeast). It is an easy and healthy variant of regular or even whole wheat Pizza as the use of cheese is minimum and the other is that the name itself arouses enthusiasm whoever eats them. 

Savoury Muffin Recipe

Pizza cups recipe

Baking muffins has no novelty value for me as I started my baking journey with muffins only. But all these years I baked only sweet muffins be it Chocolate muffins or Banana Walnut or Breakfast muffins or any other.

This is the first time that I baked savoury muffins. But I am glad I did as the result was pretty good.

These Pizza Muffins are something you must try. Make these with whatever veggies you have in the refrigerator. Though I made with some exotic ones like bell peppers, corns, etc as I had to prepare my post as well with some good pics (otherwise, you know what I mean) but you are free, so go ahead. 

 

A Quick Breakfast 

Okay, imagine this. You got late in the night, so no preparations for morning breakfast/lunch. And when wake up early morning, just couldn't understand whether to prepare breakfast or lunch box in the limited time you have. Tell me one thing, does this happen with you also or am I the only one? Then, simply mix up the batter for Pizza Muffins, with just onions and capsicum and some handy pizza seasonings. Put them in the oven and you have time to prepare the lunch box. The oven will bake your breakfast and you make your lunch box.

If you are looking for some other breakfast options then have a look at these:

 

Savoury Muffins With Semolina

And another change is of flour. Impressed with my Mango cake (excuse me for self-boasting), I tried these Pizza Muffins with semolina this time. Another reason for using semolina was that my son, Siddharth is a huge fan of Utthapam (the ones made with semolina). Half the time his breakfast is Utthapam or Appe (again with semolina). So, no second thoughts for using semolina and I just went ahead. And the result was a super-duper hit. I tell you, semolina is a very good substitute for wheat flour. Try using it and share your views on this.

 

Yeast-Free Pizza Muffins

Do you know what is the best thing about these Pizza Muffins? That is that these are yeast-free. So, if you have inhibitions about using yeast then don't worry. This one is a simple recipe. No yeast means No Proofing time. And no proofing time means no delay. Just mix and bake. To leaven the batter, we use baking powder.

 No Or Very Little Cheese

Another good thing is that you can easily cut off the cheese. So, these are full-on healthy bites for your darlings. Semolina, veggies and baked. What more can you ask for ? Give them in breakfast or in a lunch box or in the evening or basically any time. They won't say No and you wouldn't mind either. So, a win-win situation for both. Isn't it?
