Pizza Muffin Cups

These pizza cups are a great way to enjoy pizza. Essentially you have a pizza all rolled up and baked in a muffin tin.

A great thing about these pizza cups is how customizable they are. You can use homemade pizza dough (make sure it is enough for two pizzas), like I did, or you can use the store bought kind (you will need two packages). You can also use any toppings that you like. This time I used my husbands favorite toppings.

Pizza Muffin Cups


  • pizza dough
  • pizza sauce
  • 1 cup cook crumbled turkey bacon
  • 20 ounce can pineapple chunks, drained
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • Italian seasoning


  1. Preheat oven according to either your homemade pizza dough recipe or the directions on the package of pizza dough.
  2. Spray two muffin tins with cooking spray.
  3. Roll out both pizza doughs into rectangles. Spread some pizza sauce onto each pizza dough, leaving a 1 inch border along the two long sides.
  4. Top each pizza with half of the bacon, pineapple, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese.
  5. Sprinkle each pizza with a little Italian seasoning.
  6. Starting at one of the long ends of one of the pizza, starting rolling the dough enclosing the toppings.
  7. Cut the dough into 1 inch pieces and place into prepared muffin tins. Repeat with other pizza.
  8. Bake according to either your homemade dough directions or package directions.
