Deep Dish Pizza Cupcakes


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.
