What’s better than pizza? Pizza breakfast muffins! Ok it’s probably not better because I mean….#pizzaislife. BUT it’s for sure healthier and still pretty darn tasty if I do say so myself. During my usual meal prep day, I wanted to make a little twist on the other breakfast muffins recipe I have here so these pizza breakfast muffins were born.
I know I’ve said this a billion times here but I just can’t stress enough how much time meal prepping saves me during the week. It helped me get through my first Whole30 without running for the nearest drive thru and it has played a major role in my weight loss over the years. Once you have your meal prep routine down, it’s really not so bad to spend an hour or 2 on a Sunday getting ready for a healthy week! I know some people are a little put off by re-heating eggs but my husband and I usually polish these off within 3 days and I haven’t had an issue at all.
A couple of my other favorite meal prep breakfasts:
The finishing touch to this is the marinara. Also what makes it so pizza-y. That’s totally a word. I LOVE marinara sauce. My favorite two Whole30 compliant brands are Victoria’s and Rao’s Homemade. So good! They are definitely Whole30 staples for me. They even sell Victoria’s at Costco so I get to buy like 2 gallons worth which is pretty awesome if ya ask me 😉
P.S – You can check out my Whole30 Costco Finds post for more compliant items I love!
Ok back to these sausage pizza breakfast muffins. My favorite pizza toppings are olives, pepperoni and jalapeño’s but since I didn’t have compliant pepperoni on hand, I went with sausage, peppers and olives. Still a great combo! Overall it was the perfect pizza flavor packed into a little muffin.
