Pizza Muffins

Like most kids my children love pizza and I love quick and easy lunch ideas.  When I found this recipe I knew I had just found a great recipe that would satisfy all of us.  Lunch is the hardest meal for us because we have so much going on during the day, and I might be a tad lazy.  I guess saying lazy might be an exaggeration I don't think I am a lazy person, however when we get up in the morning I get the majority of my chores done so by the time lunch comes around I feel the need for a nap (which I NEVER get).  Anyway all that just to say that I like easy lunches after all it's just me and two of the kiddos at home, we don't need anything extravagant! 

1 pound pizza dough
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 cup pizza sauce
olive oil

  1. Bring dough to room temperature and preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Roll out the dough to a thin 18 x 12 rectangle and cut into squares about 3 x 3 inches.
  3. Grease mini muffin cups and place one square in each cup, making sure that the corners of the dough are sticking out.
  4. Brush edges of dough with olive oil.
  5. Pre-bake dough for 8 minutes and take tins out of oven.
  6. Pour 1 tsp of sauce in each cup and evenly distribute the cheese between the cups (you can add toppings now as well).
  7. Bake for an additional 5 minutes.
  8. Cool and serve
