~Mini Deep-Dish Pizzas~

I saw this idea on a blog post somewhere last week. The recipe wasn't included with the post, and I didn't bookmark the post either. But I really wanted to make them, so this is what I came up with!

You'll need:
muffin tin
pizza dough (one pizza's worth)
pizza sauce
your choice of toppings

I made my pizza dough, then rolled it out in a rectangle and cut it in 12 equal pieces.

Grease muffin tin, and put each square of dough in the muffin tin, working it in so it makes a well and covers the sides:

Put a spoonful of pizza sauce in each pizza, then use a pastry brush to spread it around:

Put your favorite toppings in the pizza. I chose olives and turkey sausage.

Top with cheese:

Bake at 450* for 10 minutes.

These would be fun in a lunch box, as appetizers, at a potluck, or really anytime! Pizza is always good!

I haven't done them yet, but I still plan on it. :) We'll put mushrooms, olives, and turkey pepperoni in ours I think. My hubby thinks I should make them in mini muffin tins for bite-sized ones!

I made these today, Tammy! They turned out perfectly! So much fun. Can't wait to serve them to the dozen teens we're having over on Friday for a game night. Thanks for the inspiration! :)
