Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
- 1 lb your favorite pizza dough
- 3/4 cup “pizza sauce
- 1 cup mixed veggies i used corn, green pepper, green onion, carrot, mushrooms
- 6 olives thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
- 1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese shredded
- 1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
Preheat the oven to 180° or 350°F.
Grease you muffin tin and set aside.
Chop your veggies toppings ( the smaller they are, the easier they are to fit into the pizza cups). Here I used green pepper, green onion, corn, carrot, corn, mushrooms and olives.
Feel free to experiment and use different veggies, broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, pineapple, etc.
Next you need to flatten out your dough, and then cut out large circles of dough to place in your muffin tray.
Gently press the circles into the greased muffin tin cups. Make sure there is just enough dough popping up over the edges of each cup.
Now for the fun part: stuff your pizza cups! I put a bit of basil olive oil on the bottom of each cup, followed by a teaspoon of pizza sauce, a pinch of cheese, all the veggie toppings I could fit, then topped again with another pinch of cheese and a sprinkle of Italian seasoning.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes or until they are golden brown (mine took 13 minutes for the dough to start to turn golden brown and for the cheese to bubble).
Remove from the oven and Serve almost immediately. Enjoy!!
