  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated thin pizza crust
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Pepperoni, olives, sausage, onion, green pepper, Canadian bacon, pineapple, tomatoes, fresh basil and crushed red pepper flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a small bowl, mix first 6 ingredients.
  2. Unroll pizza dough; cut into 16 squares. Press squares onto bottoms and up sides of 16 ungreased muffin cups, allowing corners to hang over edges.
  3. Spoon 1 tablespoon sauce mixture into each cup. Top with cheese; add optional toppings as desired. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Serve pizzas with remaining sauce mixture.
