Recipe: Pizza Cupcakes

Pizza is a complete meal in one bite. Agree? 

This is one meal that my kids can eat every day without question even when it has vegetables as toppings. Well, except for Chloe who would only touch a pepperoni pizza. 

The sad truth about pizza though is that it is best eaten straight out of the oven. Packing them for lunchbox is a hit and miss depending on the crust, it can get soggy.

Cupcakes that taste like your favorite pizza only this one does not get soggy when packed for school lunch or road trip. PERFECT! 

One important thing to remember when you make these, use a silicon or grease proof cupcake liner because they will stick to regular ones.  Another option is to not use liners at all and just grease your cupcake pans.
