Easy Crescent Roll Pepperoni Pizza Cups
Don’t you just love crescent rolls? You can make so many recipes with them. And let’s not forget how buttery and delicious they are all by themselves.
For these pepperoni pizza cups, you simply unroll the dough and press each triangle into the bottom of a muffin pan. This will make a tender and flaky crust perfect to hold our yummy pizza fillings.
Spoon a little (or a lot) of pizza sauce into each crescent lined muffin tin. We used about one tablespoon for each serving.
We used a standard sized muffin tin like this one for this recipe. You could also tear the crescent dough into smaller portions and use a mini muffin tin. Tiny little baby pepperoni pizza cups!
Target has a great selection of muffin tins, from jumbo to mini. Plus, you get free shipping on most orders.
Now, the fun stuff. Tiny pepperoni and shredded cheese. You can use any meat or vegetable topping you prefer. We went with the classic pepperoni. (My kids are nuts about pepperoni.)
These would be great with leftover taco beef, shredded chicken, or some chopped sweet peppers.
Once you have layered your pepperoni pizza cups with pepperoni and cheese, it is time to bake. In just 12 minutes, these savory little snacks are ready to eat!
(Be sure to let the pepperoni pizza cups cool in the pan for a couple of minutes. To make removal easier, simply slide a thin knife around the muffin tin to release the dough from the pan.)
This recipe makes 8 pepperoni pizza cups. You can easily double the recipe for a crowd.
Perfect for little hands. These Pepperoni Pizza Cups were a fast and easy hit!
