Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Let dough stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375°F. Grease twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin cups; coat cups lightly with cornmeal. Set aside.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 16x12-inch rectangle. If dough is difficult to roll, let it rest for a few minutes as necessary during rolling. Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut into twelve 4-inch squares. Lightly press dough squares into the prepared muffin cups, allowing edges to extend over rims of cups.

  • In a small bowl combine pasta sauce and dried oregano. Spread some of the sauce mixture inside dough-lined cups. Fill with mozzarella cheese and pepperoni. Top with the remaining sauce mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until crusts are golden. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups. If desired, sprinkle pizza cups with fresh oregano and/or olives and crushed red pepper.


Another time substitute cooked Italian sausage or chopped mushrooms and green sweet peppers for the pepperoni.
