You will enjoy making these little snacks packed with tasty ingredients. Making them is easy once you have the dough ready.

MAKING THE PIZZA DOUGH: For the start, you need to make the simple pizza dough. Combine all dry ingredients in one bowl, add oil and warm milk and knead a soft pizza dough. Leave to rest for 20 minutes.

PREPARE THE FILLING: In the meantime, prepare filling and sauce for the pizza muffins. For this recipe you can use homemade tomato sauce or bottled one from the store. For the topping we used smoked bacon and mozzarella cheese. 

ASSEMBLING PIZZA MUFFINS: Once the dough is ready, roll out with a rolling pin to about 5mm thickness. Using 7cm cutter, cut rounds from the dough and line oiled muffin cases. Spread pizza sauce over base and sides, then fill with cutted mozzarella and slices of smoked bacon. Sprinkle with some oregano and bake until golden. They are the best while still warm but can be heated in the oven or microwave if served later.
