Meatball Pizza Cups

Instead of ordering pizza tonight, try these perfectly pleasing pizza cups with meatballs tucked inside! Great apps, light dinner or go-withs -- so simple! So delish!


tube Pillsbury™ refrigerated thin pizza crust
cup Muir Glen™ organic pizza sauce
cup cheese, shredded
frozen meatballs
cup fresh basil, chopped


  • 1 Preheat oven to 375°F. Open and unroll pizza dough. Use a small cup or biscuit cutter to cut dough into twelve 2 1/2 inch rounds.
  • 2 Press each round into one of cup of a non-stick mini muffin tin.
  • 3 Spoon pizza sauce into each cup, sprinkle with a bit of cheese, then gently press a meatball into each cup.
  • 4 Bake pizza cups for 5 minutes, then open the oven and sprinkle as much cheese atop each as the dough will hold. (Note: now that the dough is slightly puffed up, you'll be able to put more cheese on top of the meatball than you would have before the dough began baking!)
  • 5 Finish baking, another 5-10 minutes, or just until the edges of the dough are golden brown. Remove and cool slightly before removing from muffin tin. Top with a spoonful of sauce and fresh basil before serving. Enjoy!
