Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly brush 6 standard muffin cups with oil. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out each dough piece to a 6-inch round. Fill each cup with 1 round, gently pressing dough into bottom and sides of cup. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Sprinkle each dough cup with 1 tablespoon each cheese and tomato. Add desired toppings and another tablespoon each cheese and tomato. Bake until dough is golden brown and crisp, 12 minutes. Let cool 2 minutes before removing from cups.

Cook's Notes

Standard muffin pans come in 6- or 12-cup size; if baking 6 items in a 12-cup pan, leave empty space in between. Nonstick pans are nice but not essential. Beware of very thin pans, which often lead to burning. Place pans on a baking sheet to make them easier to get in and out of the oven.

Be sure to not have too much dough (Remember, it rises!) These cute little pizza-muffins are so easy to make and are a great way to be creative in the kitchen. I used italian sausage and zuchini, and they turned out delicious!

Just made these in a 12-muffin tin. They came out great. Topped with marinara & mozzarella. Some even got spinach or left over salmon filet. Very good and super easy.

Very yummy. I also substituted for store bought dough. I made two versions, mixed veggie and turkey pepperoni. Both were tasty. I will definitely be making these again!

I made these and they were delicious. I used store bought dough to save time. I had mushrooms, onions, ground beef, and pepperoni as choice fillings. I sauted the mushrooms and onions and browned the meat first. I chose to use chopped tomatoes flavored with basil and garlic from a can. I drained the tomatoes first. Once evreyone chose thier fillings we topped with cheese and baked. Yummy!
