Pizza Cupcakes

Quick and easy appetizer that's perfect for last-minute potlucks or parties.

Ingredients

1
pkg Pillsbury™ refrigerated pizza crust
1/2
cup pizza sauce or chopped tomatoes
1
(8 oz) pkg mozzarella cheese
Pepperoni (optional)
Sausage (optional)

Directions

  • 1 Pre-heat your oven to 400°F. Roll out your Pillsbury™ Pizza Crust on a lightly floured surface. Cut out 6 rounds using a large, round cookie cutter.
  • 2 Lightly spray your muffin tin with cooking spray. If you're using a 6 muffin tin, fill each with one round. If you're using a 12 muffin tin be sure to fill every other tin to make space between cupcakes since the tins are closer together.
  • 3 Fill each cup with one tablespoon of pizza sauce or chopped tomatoes and a layer of mozzarella cheese. Then add any other pizza topping faves (a slice of pepperoni, a tablespoon of cooked sausage, chopped green peppers, etc.) and one final layer of sauce/tomatoes and cheese.
  • 4 Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool and serve!

Quick Fix: Pizza Cupcakes!

As prepared by tbspAngela,

Now that the holidays are over, the last thing anyone wants to think about is cooking.


I love the holidays, but the two most dreaded words that my family utters after the Thanksgiving cooking marathon are, "I'm hungry." So, I'm always on the look out for a quick food fix for starving bellies. Pillsbury pizza crust saves the day every time, and these Pizza Cupcakes are a "total win" snack that you can throw together in four easy steps!

Step 1


Roll out your Pillsbury pizza crust on a lightly floured surface. Cut out 6 rounds using a large, round cookie cutter (my stemless martini glass worked like a charm!).

Step 2


Lightly spray your muffin tin with cooking spray. If you're using a 6 muffin tin, fill each with one round. If you're using a 12 muffin tin be sure to fill every other tin to make space between cupcakes since the tins are closer together.

Step 3


Fill each cup with one tablespoon of pizza sauce or chopped tomatoes and a layer of mozzarella cheese. Then add any other pizza topping faves (a slice of pepperoni, a tablespoon of cooked sausage, chopped green peppers...you get the drift) and one final layer of sauce/tomatoes and cheese.

Step 4


Bake in a pre-heated oven (400 degrees) for about 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool and serve!
