These are easy and fun to make and they are also adorable. Of course any topping desired can be added to them, but I find that kids rarely want anything on their pizza besides pepperoni…some husbands too.
I package GF pizza dough (I use Bob’s Red Mill.)
Extra Olive oil
1 jar thick spaghetti sauce, or pizza sauce
2 packages shredded cheese
1 package pepperoni
We are gluten free; so we use gluten free pizza dough. If this isn’t a necessity for you any sort of dough can be used. If you are lucky enough to have a Publix nearby, they carry excellent fresh pizza dough in their bakery.
Make your dough according to the directions. Grease two muffin pans with a generous layer of olive oil. Spoon in the pizza dough to fill each muffin cup half way. Spoon a layer of sauce into each cup, and then top each cupcake with cheese and pepperoni.
Bob’s Red Mill dough requires that you bake it without toppings for seven to nine minutes before adding the toppings and then returning it to the oven for about eighteen minutes. This is a good idea with any sort of dough; it ensures that the dough will not be soggy. This recipe makes twenty-four pizza cupcakes. Enjoy!
