1-1/2 cups (375 mL) all-purpose flour
2 tsp (10 mL) baking powder
1/2 tsp (2 mL) dried Italian herb seasoning
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
1/2 cup (125 mL) vegetable oil

In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning and salt; make well in centre. Whisk together oil, milk and eggs; pour into well and stir just until moistened.
Stir in Cheddar cheese, red pepper and pepperoni. Divide among 12 large paper-lined muffin cups.
Toppings: Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over muffins. Top each with 3 pepperoni slices and 1 cherry tomato half, cut side up or any combination the kids can think of!
Bake in 375ºF (190ºC) oven until tops are firm to the touch, about 25 minutes.
