In-a-hurry School Lunch :)

Forgot to get bread for today's lunchbox .. So made these pizza muffins in a rush. Alhamdolillah turned out great. Abdullah was happy and his excitement was the best reward 

Acha, so I was at a bit of a loss.. but am grateful that I had a few basics at hand.. which made the job easy..

This is what you need: 

1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
1 egg
3/4 cup cooked and diced chicken, or minced meat
( I had chicken burgers - so fried them quickly, and chopped them small)
3/4 cup shredded cheese - I had Kraft
Seasonings: salt, black and white pepper, dash of dried basil
3 tblsp melted butter
4 tblsp pizza sauce ( I usually have a jar of pizza or tomato sauce in the fridge.. but you can also just use chopped tomatoes)

Sieve the flour with baking powder
Add salt and pepper
Add all other ings and mix well.
The whole lot will look a bit watery - dont worry, it needs to be like this, otherwise they'll dry out. They get firm, worry not 
Fill in a 12 hole muffin pan..
Bake in preheated oven at 180 for 10 mins.
As soon as they're done from inside, turn on upper grill and give them some colour..
Cool on wire rack..

You can add the following to make it more versatile:
Chopped olives
Chopped paprika
Green chillies
Fresh coriander
Fresh basil
