post no. 27 -- Cupcake Pizzas

Well this has just been the longest post to get out. From my internet dying, to pictures not loading correctly. Holy Cow! Anywhoo, finally up and running!! 


Last night I decided to get a little creative with our homemade pizzas that I usually make for Kris and I. Instead making them quite a bit smaller. I loved the result! These little morsels are perfect for parties or just a night of movies and snack dinner. 

Before we begin, here's what you guys are going to need: 

Cupcake Pan

Crescent Dough (One solid roll, no precut lines)

Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup Colby Jack Cheese
1/4 cups prepared marinara sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella 

**Makes about 8 Mini-Pizzas (enough for 2 grown adults) Use more ingredients as desired. 

Preheat oven to 375°F. Meanwhile, unroll dough onto a cutting board or flat work surface. 

Cut the dough into 8 squares. Make sure that the squares are large enough to fit the cupcake holes. They will sink in there once they start to back to form little pockets.

Go ahead and place the dough into the cupcakes slots, and spread 1 tsp.  of marinara sauce in each. Don't lather it on too thick in one spot, just spread around as desired. 

Sprinkle with about 1 1/2 tbsp. of cheese per cupcake pizza and slide them into the oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. (Like I have mentioned in previous posts, Kristopher likes all of his food crunchy so I like to keep things in the oven a little bit longer. Once they are golden and crunchily melted go ahead and pull them out and allow them to cool for about 5 minutes before serving. 

Your Cupcake Pizzas should look a little something like this. 

Last night I paired them with a small salad with carrots, oranges, and raspberries, but these honestly can be paired with anything.

Let me know if you liked the recipe!
