Ghoulishly Good Pizza Snacking Muffins
All the great flavors of pizza and NO kneading. Make a standard size roll to serve with soups or make a mini size for appetizers!
12 muffins or 36 minis
35 to 45 minutes
17 to 25 minutes
2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour (OR substitute 1 cup whole wheat flour for 1 cup all-purpose)
1 (2-1/4 tsp.) envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoons leaf oregano
1-1/4 cups very warm water (120º to 130ºF)
1 tablespoon corn oil
3/4 cup finely chopped OR mini pepperoni
1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup 1/2-inch cubed mozzarella cheese OR shredded if making minis
For Dipping (optional):
Combine 1-1/2 cups flour, undissolved yeast, sugar, salt and oregano in large mixer bowl. Add water and oil; beat 2 minutes on medium speed. Gradually add remaining 1-1/4 cups flour to make a stiff yet sticky dough. Stir in pepperoni, green bell pepper, onion and cheese. Cover bowl and let rest 10 minutes.
Portion dough into 12 (2-1/2 inch) generously greased muffin cups OR 36 mini muffin cups using a scoop or 2 tablespoons (do not use paper liners). Cover and let rise 35 to 45 minutes. Dough will rise, but not double in size.
Bake in preheated 375ºF oven for 20 to 25 minutes (17 to 20 minutes for minis) until well browned. Let cool on wire rack for 2 minutes. Run a knife around each roll to remove from pan. Serve warm with pizza sauce for dipping, if desired. Refrigerate any leftovers.
Freezer Instructions: Completely cool muffins and place in an airtight container to freeze. Thaw in the refrigerator. Microwave for 15 to 20 seconds and serve immediately.
