A few Sundays ago when we were making some delicious thin crusted creations, Chloe was on the kitchen floor playing with one of the muffin tins and it gave me a genius idea: Pizza Muffins! Why, you may ask? Why not! Pizza is crunchy, cheesy, delicious, totally kid-friendly and when it's cooked in the shape of a muffin, it just adds a cool twist to the same old slice that you're used to. When I told my husband about my inspiration for this recipe, the first thing he said was, "thank goodness Chloe wasn't playing with a jello mold when you thought this one up".
