Mini Pizza Cups

Served hot or cold, these little pizzas are wonderful. Their small size makes them ideal for an after-school snack or kid-friendly party. Plus, they’re so easy to make, little ones can help you in the kitchen! —Jane Jones, Cedar, Minnesota

    Phyllis, Pillsbury DOES make crescent rounds as well as a seamless sheet. And the photo is of a mini cupcake pan. Wow someone's in the mood to argue. lol

    Whoever wrote this recipe recipe is either incredibly stupid, high on something. Crescent rolls are NOT ROUND!!! The picture shows a regular cupcake pan , NOT a mini- . This recipe may be good if the directions were correct!

    What a great recipe. Next time I think I'll make them in full-sized muffin cups, instead of as mini-muffins. YUM!!! Pizza on the go!!!

    My son loves pizza in any form, and I thought these would be fun for him to help me make. We made them "full" size, 8 rolls= 8 pizza cups, since they were dinner :) We also added a sprinkle of parm cheese to each one before topping with mozzarella. Definitely lots of ways to go with this one!

    These are so easy and delicious! I plan on trying different veggies next time. Plan on needing a second batch because they'll be gone before you know it!

    I just made these today with my daughters. This is a great kid-friendly recipe - my girls are 1.5 & 3 yrs old, they "helped" put the toppings on! I'm sure older kids could help more, or even do it themselves.I think my muffin tin is smaller than what is shown in the picture, so I only baked mine for 12 mins and they came out perfect.Both my girls liked these - they enjoyed their lunch, and now we have snacks for the next few days too! I will be making this again for sure.

    My store doesn't carry the dinner rolls in a tube, so I used frozen dinner rolls, cut in quarters. I was making these for picky kids, so they just had sauce and cheese and were fantastic! Easy and tasty.
