These meaty, cheesy muffin-tin pizza cups are small enough to serve at a party but are great for lunch as well.
Updated Sep 20, 2016

Ingredients

  • 1 can (11 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Thin Crust Pizza Crust
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 lb mild Italian sausage
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (8 oz) sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup Muir Glen™ organic pizza sauce (from 15-oz can)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Spray 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray. Do not unroll dough; cut rolled dough into 12 pieces; place in muffin cups. Let rest 15 minutes.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add sausage; cook 5 to 6 minutes or until no longer pink. Using slotted spoon, transfer to small bowl.
  • 3
    Add onion and salt to oil in skillet; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until softened. Add mushrooms; increase heat to medium-high, and cook 4 to 6 minutes longer or until mushrooms release liquid and brown. Remove from heat.
  • 4
    Stir in cooked sausage and 1/2 cup of the pizza sauce. Cool 5 minutes. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the cheese.
  • 5
    Meanwhile, press pizza dough into cups, pressing firmly up sides. Divide sausage mixture evenly among cups.
  • 6
    Bake 11 to 14 minutes or until crusts are browned and cooked through. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Let stand 1 minute. Run knife around outside of each cup. Warm remaining 1/2 cup pizza sauce, and serve with cups. Top with basil.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Like it hot? Sprinkle pizza cups with crushed red pepper flakes, or use hot Italian sausage.
  • tip 2
    If mushrooms are quite large, break up with spatula while cooking to ensure they fit in the muffin cups.
