I really tried hard to mess this recipe up. I mean, you know, not on purpose. But there were several things that could have gone awry.
Let me back up. I attempted this:
You guys know how things in muffin tins tend to go for me, and if you don’t, let me present evidence:
So you can understand my trepidation, right?
There were other things I was worried about, too.
1. Expired baking powder.
2. Not-so-fresh Parmesan cheese. (But hey, it’s naturally aged, so that’s something.)
3. Inability to find cubed pepperoni. I found regular pepperoni and chopped it up myself.
(Note dog in bottom right corner making extra sure I didn’t drop any pepperonis by accident.)
With all of these factors combined, plus the fact that I’ve never successfully unstuck a thing in a muffin tin (besides an actual muffin), my expectations were quite low.
I did use Bakers Joy instead of Pam to spray the muffin tins… So maybe, just maybe…
And they came out looking pretty damn delicious, so when the moment of truth came, I was really, really hoping they would come out of the tin without much of a fight.
Are you in suspense yet?
Holy shitballs! It worked!
I’d like to thank Bakers Joy, my mini muffin tins, the fork that was the implement of removal, and, of course, last but not least, pepperoni grease. I couldn’t have done it alone! Thank you, thank you.
Also, they were quite delicious, but how could a pizza biscuit not be delicious, really?
