As a live-alone with company some times, I really appreciate when you say they may be frozen. I will make these with turkey pepperoni. Yum!
Thanks, Margaret! I made sure to test these for freezing, since I didn’t want to send 6 at a time with my kids. 😉

Wow….. these sound fantastic and we’re always looking for new picnic ideas! Have bookmarked it already. Can’t wait to try them…. thanks!

Thanks, Kate! These are great for any take-along meal or snack, or even just a quick one while staying home. 😉

This look yummy.
What does the sour cream function in this recipe? I am lactose free and need to find a way to do this recipe without the sour cream or work with its replacement (Lactose Free yougurt or cream).
September 4, 2013 at 3:02 pm
The sour cream helps to keep them moist – if you were going for a dairy free, I would mix 1 Tbsp lemon juice plus enough dairy free milk to make 3/4 cup, since it isn’t quite as thick as sour cream. (let it sit for 5 minutes before using)

Thanks Jeanine. I will try it tonight, along with your tomato soup.

I made these today for an after school snack. My teenagers loved them, I don’t think there will be enough left to test if they freeze well 😉 I used greek yogurt, and they turned out perfect.
September 6, 2013 at 1:54 pm
Ah, Martine, I LOVE that! If it passes the teenager test, it’s a keeper! 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!

YOU ARE AMAZING!! Made these tonight and I am now plotting how I can make them again. They were out of this world amazing! My gluten eating family could not eat them fast enough. I did make some changes, I used two cups of a GF flour mix in place of the different flours, I also used grated parm cheese in place of the shredded.Then I realized that I didn’t have any cupcake liners so I greased the cups and they came out nice and crispy around the edges. Just the way I like my pizza!! Thanks for the great recipe.
September 6, 2013 at 8:54 pm
Yeah! Thanks for reporting back, Beth! I told ya they were good, didn’t I? 😉
August 17, 2014 at 3:35 pm
I was going to ask if all the flours coukd be replaced with a gluten free flour.
How much do u use instead?
I’m going to give these a go, they sound yummy!
…but what is the pizza tomato sauce? Is it tomato puree? Or another recipe?
Thanks in advance, sorry for all the questions.

These look great, Jeanine! My boys LOVE when I make muffins and freeze them and include them in their lunches. They both love pizza, so I think they’d really like these. I’m printing off to make these soon! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
September 13, 2013 at 10:27 am
Thanks, Michelle! It is nice to have the freezer stocked with a variety of muffins, sweet & savoury, makes packing lunches much easier, and allows for variety too. You don’t have to eat one kind until they are gone. 😉

AWESOME!! Great recipe, thankyou!!! Jeanine, do you know how much of your gf A/P flour equals one cup
of gluten flour? I am trying to convert one of my gram’s recipes to gluten free.
September 13, 2013 at 10:28 am
I’m sorry, Susan. I don’t use a blend anymore, so I don’t have any on hand to weigh. I measure all my ingredients separately now, I find I have better success with that.
September 15, 2013 at 1:08 pm
I just made these for my daughter to bring back to college….not only are they the perfect grab and go lunch, they are really delicious!!! I wish you could have seen her eyes twinkle when she tried one! Thanks for the great recipe!
September 20, 2013 at 12:30 pm
Aw, thanks so much for sharing, Diana! 🙂 Maybe she’ll be home for a container-refill soon. 😉

These are a hit! They do freeze well. I pack them frozen in my kids lunch and they are defrosted by lunch. Apparently the muffins are so delicious that a few of my son’s friends asked for the recipe even though they don’t need to eat GF. I made them dairy free as well by substituting more jarred pasta sauce for the sour cream, a box of silken tofu plus 1/4 cup nutritional yeast for all the diced cheese, then also sprinkled the top with nutritional yeast. Delicious GF and DF!! Also higher protein with the addition of the tofu to help satisfy constantly hungry growing teenage boys!!
October 9, 2013 at 2:07 pm
Haha, that’s awesome, Sara! Glad to hear that the substitutions worked so well for you too, that’s awesome! Thanks for the tips!
October 19, 2013 at 9:09 pm
Thank you for this recipe. I love having them in the freezer for lunches!
October 29, 2013 at 6:56 am
Me too, Amy. 🙂 Sure makes lunches a lot easier!
November 11, 2013 at 6:22 pm
I’ve made these a couple times. They are a favorite for all my kids. My oldest is a bigger eater, and one muffin isn’t enough, and two are almost too much. So today, I made these little jems in one of those little instant pie cookers that bakes 4 at a time in 4-5 minutes. They are like little personal pizza pies 😀
November 11, 2013 at 7:28 pm
Amy – do you mean one of these types of things?
That’s a great idea! I’m glad that you shared!
March 30, 2014 at 11:39 am
Just made these and gave them fresh out of the oven to the kids! Yummy! They are looking forward to having them in their lunch boxes tomorrow! Great alternative to the boring sandwich! Added sliced black olives to some of them… Delicious!
July 15, 2014 at 3:14 pm
Jeanine, these are delish!!!! My 8 yr old celiac and 15 yr old (no dietary restrictions) loved them. I wanted to test them for school lunches to add some variety for my 8 yr old. They were a complete winner. I am hoping to convince my 5 yr picky eater to try them, I know he’ll love them once he tries them. Thanks so much for a fabulous recipe, it’s a definite keeper for the freezer!!! Love your site!

This look delicious, do you think the Ener G egg replacer will work in the recipe?
September 4, 2014 at 9:49 am
No idea, Geneva, but worth a try!
August 17, 2014 at 3:54 pm
Sidone, 2 cups of flour, omit the xanthan if your mix already has it in it. I don’t know if it’ll work though, since some blends are so high in starches. Just canned pizza sauce is what I use.
August 30, 2014 at 9:24 pm
Any chance you could add the weight of your ingredients to this recipe? I seem to have far more success with your recipes when I can weigh ingredients. I made Cinnamon Buns this morning. Yummy! We love all your recipes (that we’ve tried)
September 3, 2014 at 6:05 am
Wow!! What a hit! Made these yesterday for after school snacks. We all loved them. My 11 & 9yr olds were devouring them. Delicious!!
I would like to experiment with a dairy free soy free nut free option for the sour cream though. Any suggestions?
September 4, 2014 at 9:48 am
So glad to hear that, Natalie! Good question on the sour cream replacement… I wonder if it wouldn’t work to take 1 tablespoon vinegar, plus enough dairy-free, soy free, nut free milk to make 3/4 cup. Stir that together and let it sit so it gets a little thick, it will be like a buttermilk. Now, keep in mind, I haven’t tried it… but I ‘think’ that should work. 😉
October 25, 2014 at 8:59 pm
I used lactose free milk with a tbsp of vinegar to make ‘buttermilk’… Worked beautifully!!! I’ve done the same with dairy free milks too.
October 25, 2014 at 8:57 pm
Such a delicious switch up for a lunch time meal for my little miss almost 4yo daughter who has Ceoliacs Disease!! Great recipe- thank you!!!
You’re very welcome, Fleur!

These are the best pizza muffins I have ever made!
I had to be at figure skating lessons for my daughter and then right to football practice for my son. Dinner in the car with pizza muffins and veggies.
June 12, 2015 at 10:19 am
Thanks, Bridy, glad to hear that they are a hit with your family too. Mine love them – hard to keep them on hand, actually. 🙂
