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