Greek pizza muffins

Yields 12

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup diced tomatoes with juice (or use your favorite pizza sauce)
  • 1/4 cup diced Greek olives, pits removed
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper, seeds and membrane removed
  • 2 diced green onions, white and green parts
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray a regular-sized muffin tin with the nonstick cooking spray (you could also use paper or silicone baking liners) and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add the flour, baking powder, oregano, salt and black pepper. Whisk to combine. Make a well in the center of the mixture and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and add the milk, tomatoes, olives, bell pepper, green onion and feta cheese. Mix to combine.
  4. Add the wet mixture to the well of the dry mixture and stir until combined.
  5. Add the batter to the muffin tin, filling each well about 3/4 full.
  6. Bake for 20 to 24 minutes, or until the tops of the muffins turn golden. Allow to cool slightly before serving, either warm or at room temperature.
