Deep Dish Pizza Cupcakes


Pizza is my all-time favorite food.  I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  The other day I was in the mood for deep dish pizza.  I wanted something quick, so a traditional deep dish pizza was out of the question.  I had a can of crescent rolls in the fridge, so I made these deep dish pizza cupcakes.  They were SO good.  They took about 20 minutes from start to finish.  We had them for lunch, but they would be great for a quick dinner.  These can be customized for every family members personal preference.  You might want to double the recipe, these don't last long!



Deep Dish Pizza Cupcakes
(Printable Recipe)


1 can refrigerated crescent rolls (I used the seamless sheet)
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 tsp garlic powder
pizza toppings - pepperoni, ham, sausage, peppers, onions, mushrooms

Preheat oven to 375.

Spray 8 regular muffin cups with cooking spray.  Cut crescent roll dough into 8 squares.  Press into muffin cups.

Sprinkle some of cheese (about 1 Tbsp) in the bottom of each muffin cup.  Top with 1 Tbsp of pizza sauce.  Add remaining cheese and top with pizza toppings.  Sprinkle garlic powder over toppings.

Bake 15-18 minutes. Remove from pan and serve immediately.

  7. This is a great idea for a party. I am hosting one next week and was wondering about making them and then freezing them? Has anyone tried this?

    1. I am a freezer cook and I am pretty sure these will freeze beautifully. You could then microwave them, but I will probably bake them for 10 minutes after they are thawed.

  8. Dee - I haven't frozen them. If you do freeze them, make sure to bake them first. They won't rise properly if you freeze them without baking them first. Let us know if you try it!

    1. I have never seen them in Australia (from US moved over 4 years ago). I think maybe something like puff pastry could work as a replacement.. But it wouldn't be exactly the same.
