Reviews for Mini Pizza Cups
"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."
"What a great looking recipe. I would definitely make these, but I think I'll make them in full-sized muffin cups, instead of as mini-muffins. You could put any toppings inside of these. I might even try this with refrigerated pizza dough. YUM!!! Pizza on the go!!!"
"Made these in the regular tins and they are fantastic!"
"These are great and can be made with different toppings of course to suit everyones likeing. We love em!"
"I usually use the biscuits instead of the dinner rolls and yes, I have frozen them. They are great!"
"I don't see why they can't be frozen! I freeze a lot of things for quick convenience on those busy weeknights! I would probably freeze them in a ziploc bag so you can grab the number you need each time. I think it would be great for school-age kids... they can grab a few from the freezer and pop in microwave for 30-45 seconds for a super yummy after school snack! I would put the microwave directions on the bag with a permanent marker so they don't have to try and remember how long!"
"That sounds good. (freezing them) Have you had any replies? email@example.com"
"These sound great, can they be frozen so they can be pulled out, zapped for a quick snack?"
