Back-to-School Recipe: Mini pizza cups

Posted August 16, 2012

Editor's note: Go Ask Mom always has a recipe every Friday. But we'll have even more recipes next week, featuring back-to-school ideas.

We love these cute after school snacks, which double as a great appetizer for a party.


1 tube (11.3 ounces) refrigerated dinner rolls
1 can (8 ounces) pizza sauce
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/3 cup finely chopped green pepper
2 ounces sliced turkey pepperoni, chopped
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


Separate dough into eight rolls; cut each into quarters. Press dough onto the bottom and up the sides of miniature muffin cups coated with cooking spray.

Spoon pizza sauce into each cup. Sprinkle with onion, green pepper, pepperoni and cheese. Bake at 375° for 15 to 18 minutes or until crusts are browned and cheese is melted.

Yield: 32 appetizers or snacks.
