- 4 large eggs
- ½ cup dairy-free plain yogurt (undrained; I used agave-sweetened coconut yogurt)
- 1/3 cup toasted almond flour (see directions)
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 heaping tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- 1 to 2 tsp pizza seasoning (or equivalent combined amount of herbs/seasonings such as onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, basil, and parsley)
- about ½ cup pepperoni slices (optional; precooked and cut into smaller pieces with kitchen shears; see instructions; see notes for vegetarian alternatives)
- ¾ cup Daiya mozzarella-style shreds
- About ¾ cup pizza sauce in total (or tomato sauce, amount as desired to top each muffin; see notes)
- About 1/3 cup of additional Daiya mozzarella-style shreds (amount as desired to top each muffin)
- Turn on broiler. Spread 1/3 cup almond flour on ungreased baking sheet. Broil for about a minute and a half, stirring twice, until most of the almond flour is lightly browned. (Do not walk away from the broiler during this time or almond flour will burn.) Remove baking sheet from oven and set aside momentarily to cool.
- Spread pepperoni slices on microwave-safe plate lined with two paper towels and topped with a paper towel. Microwave on HI about 30 to 45 seconds. Remove from microwave and use top paper towel to blot grease from pepperoni slices. Use kitchen shears to cut into smaller pieces; irregular pieces are fine. Set aside.
- Reduce oven temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Grease 12 muffin cups well or line with cupcake liners, spraying each lightly with non-stick spray or oil.
- Add eggs to a medium-sized bowl; whisk.
- Add in yogurt. Whisk.
- Add in almond flour (toasted and “untoasted”), coconut flour, baking powder, sea salt, pizza seasoning, Daiya cheese, and pepperoni. Whisk all to mix.
- Scoop batter into muffin tins until about ¾ full. (I use an ice cream scoop.)
- Spoon about a tablespoon of pizza sauce on top of the batter in each muffin cup. Sprinkle a few mozzarella shreds on top of the pizza sauce in each muffin cup.
- Bake about 22 minutes. Check with a toothpick for doneness.
- Serve. Store any remaining muffins covered in refrigerator.
I always use Honeyville Almond Flour. This recipe is also soy free and even refined sugar free if you use a refined sugar-free pizza sauce or substitute tomato sauce for the pizza sauce. (Blot tomato sauce with paper towel to remove extra liquid.) For a vegetarian option, pepperoni may be omitted or replaced with another ingredient like spinach or zucchini. Be sure to wring out all excess liquid before adding to batter. Really you could add just about any ingredient that you enjoy on any pizza! If you can eat dairy, feel free to use dairy yogurt and dairy mozzarella cheese.
