Makes 6 Pizza Muffins, Preparation time 15 mins, Cooking time 20 to 25 mins

  • 250 g Italian 00 Flour or Plain flour/All Purpose Flour, sifted
  • 130 ml water at room temperature 
  • 30 ml EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • 1 teaspoon of dried instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 Mozzarella, shredded or freshly diced
  • Tomato sauce, to taste
  • Dried oregano, to taste
  • desalted capers and pitted black olives, to taste
  • a couple of cherry tomatoes, optional


Preheat the oven to 200C / 180C Fan / Gas 6.

Put sifted flour and yeast in a bowl, add water a little at a time, start mixing with a wooden spoon, then add EVOO, mix again.
Add the teaspoon of salt, knead with your hands for 5 minutes until the dough is smooth.

Divide it into 6 portions, spread them out a little by placing them directly into the paper-lined or lightly oiled muffin tin.

Stuff with a spoonful of tomato sauce, diced mozzarella, capers and olives cut into rounds and a sprinkling of dried oregano.

Fold them over slightly as if to form a bundle to better enclose the sauce.

Bake for about 20 minutes in a static oven, allow them to cool to room temperature before serving.
