Calories 190 kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 pound frozen pizza dough or make it fresh
  • 1 cup bottled sauce or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano crushed
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella or cheddar cheese 8 ounces
  • 1/2 of a 3.5-ounce package of sliced pepperoni chopped*
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese 1 ounce

Instructions

  1. Preheat over to 375
  2. Let dough stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, grease twelve 2-1/2 inch muffin cups.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into an approximate 16x12 inch rectangle. If you find the dough is difficult to roll, let it rest for a few more minutes, as necessary.
  4. Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut into twelve 4-inch squares. Lightly press double squares into the prepared muffin cups, allowing edges to extend over rims of cups.
  5. In a small bowl combine pasta sauce and dried oregano. Spread some of the sauce mixture inside the dough-lined cups. Fill with mozzarella cheese and pepperoni*. Top with the remaining sauce mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until crusts are golden.
  7. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes, remove from muffin cups and serve.
