Deep Dish Pizza Cups

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

Hey there, Hungry! You’ve got two hands – so use one to grab a mini deep-dish pizza, and the other to -- well -- grab another! These 3-meat treats are quick, tasty, and tres fabu!

When it comes to pizza, everyone's got their favorite version. There's the thin, crispy crust of a NYC pizza. A stacked, Chicago-style pizza. The sweet bite of tomato sauce and roasted veggies if you want to eat it like they do in the OC.

Whatever your favorite version of pizza is, prepare to move it on over, because these little Deep Dish Mini Tin Pizzas are so cute, they will wiggle their way right into your heart. They taste like a pizza dream: rich, hearty, and oh-so-simple to bake. You're going to love them!

To make your own batch of Deep Dish Mini Tin Pizzas, pop open a tube of Pillsbury Simply French Bread, then unroll it into a flat sheet. Cut it into 8 evenish squares. They don't have to be perfect. Kinda like my grammar in this sentence.

Simply French Bready by Pillsbury

Press that dough right into a muffin tin which has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray. You're halfway there! How easy is this recipe?!

Toss a wee bit o' homemade sauce right into each cup of dough. Yeah, that sounded Irish. Don't ask.

Pizza Sauce for Mini Pizza Cups

Fill 'er up! Sausage and bacon bits pretty much seal the deal.

Adding Sausage and Bacon to Mini Pizza Cups

Cheese, please. A good, hefty sprinkling, thank you.
Top Mini Pizzas with Cheese

Pepperoni finds its way up top. Yeah, now the deal is officially sealed. Pop it all in the oven and bake until golden brown and bubbly. Then open your mouth and feed yer face.
