Mini Pizzas


- One Jar of Tomato Sauce
- Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- Minced Garlic
- Sliced Pepperoni -or- preferred toppings
- Half of an Onion, Diced
- Pillsbury Simply French Bread
- Olive Oil Spray

Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit. Spray your muffin pan with olive oil (may also use canola oil or vegetable oil).

Remove the Pillsbury Simply French Bread Dough from the packaging & cut the dough into twelve rounds. Form the dough in each of the muffin molds by pressing it from the middle up onto the sides of the pan. Once finished, place the dough alone in the oven for about five minutes or so.

While the dough is prepping in the oven, pour your tomato sauce into a small saucepan on your stove with low to medium heat. Add desirable amount of minced garlic & diced onion to the sauce & stir occasionally.

Pull the warmed dough out of the oven to add the sauce, cheese, and toppings. I used one & a half tablespoons of sauce per each dough cup before sprinkling a handful of cheese atop, & then added one pepperoni to each. Remove the saucepan from the heat, so the remaining sauce may cool & be stored for later use. 

Return the muffin pan to the oven for about fifteen to twenty minutes or until the cheese is melted & browned to your liking. Let the mini pizzas cool slightly before serving. They are great with a side salad for an easy dinner & the leftovers reheat well for lunch the next day.
