One-bite pizzas made in mini muffin tins are perfect game-day appetizers or fun grab-n-go snacks!. Recipe by Baker Peabody.


  • 1 can Pillsbury™ refrigerated Pizza Crust
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 24 pieces pepperoni
  • 3/4 cup finely shredded Italian Cheese Blend
  • 60 mini pepperoni (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F and spray cavities of a muffin pan with cooking spray.
  2. 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 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.
  3. Using your fingers, stretch the dough without tearing and press into muffin cups.
  4. Place a pepperoni at the bottom of the cup. This will help prevent it from getting soggy.
  5. Next place about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of pizza sauce on top of the pepperoni.
  6. Add Italian cheese blend (as much or as little as you like).
  7. If you want more pepperoni, either chop some of the larger up or use mini ones.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes, depending on your oven, until cooked through, dough is golden brown, and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
