    These are delicious! I made them with pepperoni and black olives, I left out the tomatoes because I do not like them, and it turned out great! We also have a large muffin pan, that makes oversized muffiins, so I made it in that, and they turned out perfectly. Mine turned out moist, possibly because I was watching it so closely after using a larger tin, but I do not beleive these would be good if they were dry, so moniter them closely. They also reheat well, and make for good lunches.  -  28 May 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Excellent muffins - wonderful flavor - everyone loved them at my dinner party (served them with vegetable lasagne).  -  02 Apr 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These are very adaptable to changes, just like pizza. Add your favorite toppings. I substitued part of the flour with 1/2 c whole wheat and 1/2 cup corn meal. I used less cheese and added green pepper and pepperoni. Very quick, adds a flavorful side to a simple meal. I also used soured milk (milk and vinegar) in place of the buttermilk with no problems, and I like that there is no fat other than the pizza toppings.  -  20 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
