My Summer of Pinterest: Cupcake Pizzas

My summer got off to a bit of a slower start than I would have liked, but now that I’m starting to feel better and my days are more than pain killers and naps, I’ve decided to dedicate the remainder of this summer to Pinterest.  I work from home in July and August and with the exception of two conferences I have to travel to and hopefully a trip to Oregon, I’ll be home and that gives me time to cook.

For about a year now I’ve been “pinning” recipe after recipe of food that looks delicious on Pinterest and up until Sunday, I’ve not even attempted a single one of them.  Well, now its on Pinterest…I’m gonna cook every single one of the recipes currently on my “Recipes to Try” board.  That’s 212 recipes…so ok, maybe not “every” single one of them, but I’m gonna make an attempt.  The recipes that work and are delicious will stay, the ones that don’t, won’t.  I’ve already eliminated an incredibly disgusting “worlds best macaroni and cheese” pin (I won’t be blogging about that disaster).

So here we go.  Tonite’s pin of choice: “Cupcake Pizzas”

You can find the original blog post from Pinterest here. This person made them in a muffin tin so they were larger.  I used a cupcake tin and the recipe made 9, but probably could have stretched to 12.  I think these are the perfect size for a fun party, kids, or just for a snack.

What you need:
Cupcake Tin
Pillsbury Refrigerated Pizza Dough
Pizza Sauce
Pizza Toppings of Choice (I used mini-pepperoni and sausage)
Shredded Cheese

Preheat oven to 425.  Grease the tin.  Smush the pizza dough into the tin, leaving an indent with the dough up the sides a bit. Put in a spoonful or more (to your liking) of Pizza Sauce.  Note: I imagine this would be delish with a white sauce and veggies too.
