Mini muffin pizzas . A recipe I first came across in a foodie group in Facebook , home bakers guild . Rajashri Manoj had posted it and i just went head over heels seeing her haute make over post . Book marked the recipe but time didn’t permit me to give a try . Finally gave it a try with a home made pizza sauce from scratch . The beauty of this recipe is that it comes together very quickly . Thinking I had pizza sauce in stock went ahead giving this recipe a try , only after I baked my pizza muffins did I note I didn’t have it in my pantry . Immediately just made a sauce with what ever came to my mind with my trimmings and was surprised with the out come .this poshed  – up version of pizza sauce from scratch was delicious .  Hubby dear hates pizza  in spite of the global craze it has  so with fingers crossed served it to him on the Iftar table . ( Iftar table made me cross my fingers double the more ) . Thank fully he liked it as the muffins were soft , moist and packed with flavour , not chewy like normal pizza ‘S . The chewy part is what hubby hates about pizza’s . The pizza muffins bursted with a satisfying plop on hubby’s plate . So  Folks , sure can’t escape this must have casual bites .
