Perfect for freezing, so why not make a few dozen at a time. Perfect snack for when the kiddies come home from school or for us as a quick lunch. Also the kiddies might like to add their own toppings. These are so simple & only need a few ingredients.
Pizza sauce or Tomato Puree or BBQ sauce
Assortment of cooked meats (I used cooked ham but you could also use cooked sausage or pepperoni)
Assortment of vegetables (I used mixed red/green/yellow peppers & diced onion but feel free to add any veggies you & your kiddies like)
Chilli flakes (optional)
Line a few baking sheets with parchment paper. Slice open the muffins and line them up on the baking sheets with cut sides facing up.
Spread about 1 Tbsp pizza sauce over the surface of each muffin, then add about 1 Tbsp grated mozzarella.
Chop the vegetables & meats into very small pieces, then divide them evenly among the pizzas then add another Tbsp mozzarella. Press down lightly on top of each pizza to help compact the toppings and keep them in place as they freeze. Freeze for about 8 hours, or until the pizzas are solid.
Once the pizzas are frozen solid, carefully transfer them to freezer bags for long-term storage. For the best results, the pizzas should be cooked and eaten within 3 months (not a problem in my house 🙂 )
To bake the pizzas, take out the number you wish to bake, place them on a baking sheet, and let them partially thaw as you preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6 (about 7 minutes). Once the oven is fully preheated, bake the pizzas for about 15- 17 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the cheese is melted. Baking time will vary depending on your oven and the amount of toppings on the pizzas.
