Just found these okay. Did make an ammendment instead of pizza sauce I used more milk and roasted pepper pesto. The muffins were moist and not dry like other savoury muffins I have tried but I'm not sure if I will try again. Thanks for sharing.

These were great! I made 1 batch with sausage, pepperoni, mozzarella, onions and mushrooms, and another batch with spinach, ricotta and mozzarella (omitted parmesan and 1/2 pasta sauce). They both turned out great and tastey! The only problem was that they STUCK badly to the cup liners. Next time I will probably just grease the muffin pan instead. THANKS FOR THE RECIPE!
