We are big fans of easy simple savoury recipes. The basic cheese muffin recipe I use here is the base of so many lovely versions, we enjoy it as is, we also use it to hide lots of veges in for the kids lunch boxes.
Now I would love to share another fun way we enjoy them, as Pizza Muffins! There are so many versions of this recipe out there, this is our favourite.
I have partnered with NZ Pork to bring you this recipe as they want us to let you know that while we want to shop local right now, we also need to support our New Zealand farmers by purchasing locally grown New Zealand Pork
It can be tricky to know if the ham you are buying is from New Zealand. There are a couple of things you can keep an eye out for – the Born & Raised in New Zealand (PigCare) or 100% New Zealand Ham on pack labels.
Or you can check the ingredients list on the back of the packet – if it says made from local (and not imported ingredients) you will know the pork used is from New Zealand. Buying New Zealand means you are supporting our local farmers, and helping our wider economy.
The ingredients for this one are lovely simple pantry staples, and the flavours are based on our families favourite pizza, the Hawaiian – so that means, cheese, New Zealand ham, pineapple, oregano and even the tomato paste. All in one delicious muffin that takes such little time to prepare.
As with many muffin recipes it is super simple, there is no butter or oil required, just one egg with milk, and makes 12 lovely sized muffins. Simply a matter of adding the wet ingredients to the dry, gently combining and baking.
These freeze beautifully as well, which makes them ideal to have on hand for lunch boxes or for unexpected muffin cravings or visitors. They are lovely cold or warm, but I do recommend trying at least one fresh from the oven.
These would also be just as delicious with New Zealand bacon, crispy bacon crumbled into the dry ingredients, the crunch would be lovely! If a Hawaiian pizza isn’t your favourite feel free to mix up the ingredients, but it is just lovely as is.

There is some debate as to whether pineapple belongs on a pizza, let me just say it definitely belongs in this muffin! But I will leave that up to you, however the key is ensuring there is not too much moisture added so any vegetables or pineapple need to be drained of their juices.
Try finely grating some zucchini (squeezed of juice) or carrot for some added hidden vege and flavour.
Onto the recipe, I hope you enjoy these fun savoury muffins, perfect for a weekend lunch or lunch boxes

Do you think these would work with wholemeal flour?
Yes I am sure they would.

Do you remove them from the muffin tin while still warm or completely cold? Mine stuck both ways.
I usually allow them to cool for five minutes before removing. It’s important you grease them well before cooking.
Made these today for lunch… huge hit! So easy and really tasty
Thank you for the feedback. Glad you enjoyed them ☺️
Oh my goodness me, these are awesome! What a superb idea! We had made pizza’s for dinner this week so I had some left over mozzarella cheese and pizza sauce which I used but I left out the pineapple. As always Anna, simple to make and simply delish!
So pleased to hear!! ☺️ thank you for the lovely feedback ☺️
