Mini Muffin Pizzas

We all have those nights when we make our favorite food ...
... sit down, and enjoy our favorite TV shows.

Sunday night - is one of those nights for me.

And recently, one of my best friends (Sara Gude) passed along an
idea for a recipe I should try for my blog ...
... which I tested out on my "Sunday TV" night.

They are deep-dish pizzas made in a muffin tin!

1 roll of pizza dough
1 jar of your favorite pizza or spaghetti sauce
Mozzarella cheese
Your favorite pizza toppings
(I used ground beef, pepperoni, onions, green peppers, mushrooms, olives.)

First, cook 1/2 pound of ground beef with 1/2 a yellow onion.

Cut up your other ingredients.

Roll out the pizza dough on a FLOURED surface (otherwise it'll stick.)
Cut the dough into 8 squares.

Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray, or rub with olive oil.
Place 1 of the "dough squares" into a muffin slot.
Put 1 tablespoon of your sauce in the middle.

Fill the muffin slots with ground beef, pepperoni, green peppers, mushrooms, and olives.

Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top.
Put in a preheated 450 degree oven... for 10-12 minutes.

When you take them out, they are warm, with a golden crust.

Don't you just want to eat this right now?!

Put the remainder of the sauce in a "dipping bowl" and heat in the microwave
for 1-2 minutes.
Place on the table.
Perfect for dipping your mini muffin pizzas in.

Seriously, this is such a great TV night meal.
Feel good food, that is so easy to make!
