Deep Dish Pizza Bites
Updated February 10, 2020
can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated classic pizza crust
oz finely shredded Italian cheese blend
mini pepperoni (optional)
Preheat oven to 425°F and spray cavities of a muffin pan with cooking spray. Remove pizza dough from packaging and allow it to come to room temperature on a floured surface. Using a rolling pin or your hands, roll the dough out into a thin layer. Using either a round cookie cutter or a clean glass, cut rounds out of the dough. You want the circle to be slightly bigger than the size of the muffin cup.
Gently stretch each circle of dough (without tearing) and press into muffin cups.
Place a pepperoni at the bottom of the cup. This will help prevent it from getting soggy.
Next place about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of pizza sauce on top of the pepperoni. Add Italian cheese blend (as much or as little as you like).
Top with mini pepperonis if desired.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, depending on your oven, until cooked through, dough is golden brown, and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
