Pizza Cupcakes for Kids

Pizza Cupcakes for Kids

It's a great challenge to please the kids when it comes to food, but you can never go wrong with pizza or cupcakes. If you can combine the two, they will be even happier! At first I wanted to make mini pizzas, the same classic pizza, but a lot smaller in size. It was pretty OK, but not spectacular, so I was a bit sceptical when I started the cupcakes. The work method turned out to be very simple and the final result made both the kids and me very happy.

An important detail we all noticed is that the next day the pizza cupcakes were still very good, even cold, without heating. We took them with us on a picnic and everybody liked them. Follow closely the steps in the recipe and make your children happy with these delicious, beautiful and interesting cupcakes.

Helper recipes

1 serving


Tomatoes sauce
200 g
tomato sauce for pizza, you can find the recipe on my website
Canned corn
200 g
100 g
or other types of sausages, you can also add mushrooms, olives etc.
Yellow cheese
200 g

Step by step


First, prepare the pizza crust. I usually follow the Classic pizza dough or the Quick, no-yeast pizza dough recipe.


Knead with a bit of flour until smooth and make sure it isn't too dense. Let rest for 15 minutes.


While the dough is resting, I recommend preparing the rest of the ingredients for the pizza, especially the cheese.


Grate the cheese using the big holes side and set aside.


Now roll out the dough into a big, 3-4mm thick sheet. Dust the table with flour, it will make it easier to work.


Using a big mug, cut rounds of about 9-10cm in diameter.

This also depends on the size of the cupcake cups you have, if they are smaller, cut smaller rounds.


Press into muffin cups, greased with a bit of oil, and make sure they fit in perfectly. Gently tap with your fingers the bottom and the sides.


I made 12 cupcakes, if there is any dough left, you can either make some more muffins or a classic pizza.


Let's continue with the muffins - coat the base and the sides with your favourite tomato sauce.

I use the Classic Marinara Sauce or any Tomato Sauce for Pizza.


Add your kids' favourite toppings - mine like corn on a pizza :) So, I spooned 1 tbsp corn on top of each cupcake.


Top with a few pieces of sausage or ham, mushrooms, olives etc.


Lastly top the muffins with shredded yellow cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven at 200 degrees C for 30-40 minutes.


After this time, they will surely turn to golden brown on top, but it's important to check if they are completely cooked through. I use a knife to pull one out and see if the base is cooked as well.


Let cool for a bit before serving.

They were good either way, warm and cold.
