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 member’s personal preference.  You might want to double the recipe, these don’t last long!

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. These are genius…can't wait to make them…I am about to do a post on the many uses of crescent rolls and will put this recipe in, linking back to you.

  4. Great idea and they sound so delicious. If you get a chance stop by my blog. I am having a giveaway for my new cookie cookbook.
