A must-try for pizza lovers, this lunchtime treat has all the taste of a Hawaiian pizza in the form of a lunch box-friendly savoury muffin. I give you the pizza muffin. Oh, yes I do.

An awesome shake up to the sandwich scene, muffins are a great lunch box option. This pizza muffin recipe is a basic building block – top it up with extras like diced capsicum and pepperoni and you could almost convince yourself your muffin is actually pizza. Yum!
