Easy Pizza Cups Recipe


We love eating a variety of International foods and Italian is always right at the top of the list. There are so many options and many are just so easy make right at home. From pasta to pizza, there is something that everyone likes here.  Growing up in a heavy Italian neighborhood and nearby Federal Hill in Providence, Rhode Island, you could say I've had my share of delicious Italian cuisine over the years.  Now, most nights we gather around the dinner table as a family and enjoy a meal together. It's the one time of day that we all take a minute to relax and catch up with everyone. It's a tradition that I wanted to continue from my own childhood.

While shopping at Cost Plus World Market, I found a huge selection of Italian Foods from pizza crusts, pastas to authentic sauces. To create my yummy recipe, I selected fine ingredients like SACLA Parmigiana Pasta Sauce which has a rich authentic flavor that reminded me of my mom's sauce. Pastarelli Ultra Thin & Crispy Pizza Crust which was perfect for trimming and stuffing into my muffin tin, Minasso Pomodoro Sundried Tomatoes and Mezzetta Roasted Bell Peppers to add vegetable and more flavor easily.

My favorite find was this Mozzarella Cheesemaking Kit. Yes! It comes with everything you'll need to make 4 pounds of cheese at home! You just need a gallon of milk for each pound of cheese. I am a huge fan of what I refer to as fresh mozz! So delicious and a must try if you haven't yet. This is an awesome DIY kit to do with kids too!

To make my pizza cups, I trimmed little muffin tin sized circles out of the thin pizza crust.  Using a drinking glass, I was able to trim around it with a small knife.

Last weekend we had my niece and nephews over, so I thought it would be a perfect time to serve up something extra fun.  I made these easy Pizza Cups and allowed the kids to choose their own toppings. I prepared the pizza crust and added sauce to get them started. They had a serious blast making their yummy creations!
