Italian Leek Pizza Muffins recipe

These tasty pizza muffins are a real treat and are not that difficult to make.


  • 250g leeks
  • 4 savoury muffins
  • 4 slices ham, prosciutto if you can get it, cut in half
  • 100g mozzarella
  • 4 tbsp. fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Method of Preparation:

  1. Finely chop the basil leaves. Cut the mozzarella into slices and then finely shred the leeks. Cut the muffins in half.

  2. Heat the oil in a pan and sauté the leeks over a relatively high heat for up to ten minutes with some salt and pepper until they're softened.

  3. Meanwhile, put the muffins under the grill so that they can toast.

  4. Top each muffin half with the leeks, and then divide the basil between the muffins. Top each muffin with a half of a slice of ham and some mozzarella.

  5. Put the muffins back under the grill until the cheese melts and browns, then sprinkle with some pepper before serving.

These muffins serve two or three people as a main course and four people as a starter. You could also add a slice of plum tomato to each muffin or you could use cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella.
