Easy Mini Pizza Cups


Easy Mini Pizza Cups

Ingredients

1 Packet (2 x 9-inch) Refrigerated Pie Crusts, at room temperature
1 ½ Cups Shredded Mozzarella
1 Cup Thick Pasta Sauce (store-bought, any flavor)
About 4 Tbsp of Finely Shredded Parmesan Cheese
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Non-Stick Mini Muffin Pans
6 ½-inches Round Cookie Cutter

Method

Preheat the oven to 400˚F/200˚C.

Unroll the pie crust on a lightly floured work surface, cut out circles, and place the dough into the muffin pan. Lightly press the dough into the corners of the pan.

Fill about ½ tsp of mozzarella cheese in each dough, pasta sauce (about 1 Tbsp), top-up with mozzarella cheese, (as much as you like), some Parmesan cheese, and freshly ground black pepper.

Place the muffin pan on a baking sheet (to prevent spillage), and bake for about 15 to 16 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the pastry is golden in color. Let the pizza cups cool for about 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

  12. I just made a variation on these for a party last weekend! I used crescent roll dough instead of pie crusts and filled them with finely chopped bbq chicken mixed with finely diced red onion and topped with grated pepper jack. Mini bbq chicken pizzas! These are fab for a party -- easy to eat while mingling.

  14. These look kinda fun... I've been playing with making mini quiches for bento meals a lot lately... One trick I like to use to make them quickly but still amazingly delicious is to simply use round dumpling wrappers, generally you can find them in random Japanese/Chinese grocery stores in the freezers... Just a small time saving tip.
