Eagle Eats: Pizza cupcakes

Are you hungry? Here is an easy recipe for pizza cupcakes!

 1 can refrigerated crescent rolls

 1/2 cup pizza sauce

 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

 1/2 tsp garlic powder

 pizza toppings – pepperoni, ham, sausage, peppers, onions, mushrooms (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 375°F

2. Spray 8 regular muffin cups with cooking spray.

3. Cut crescent roll dough into 8 squares.

4. Press into muffin cups.

5. Sprinkle some cheese (about 1 tbsp) in the bottom of each muffin cup.

6. Top with 1 tbsp of pizza sauce.

7. Add remaining cheese and top with pizza toppings.

8. Sprinkle garlic powder over toppings.

9. Bake 15-18 minutes.

10. Let cool for a couple minutes.

Regular pizza is way over done. Here’s an easy way to make a deep-dish style pizza in 20 minutes or less from start to finish. They’re great for lunch or even for a last minute dinner. They can be customized for all personal preferences. And for those looking for a healthier option, substitute the mozzarella cheese for an organic mozzarella cheese product and the crescent rolls for a gluten free brand. Think about doubling the recipe because these don’t last long. Enjoy!
