Have you ever had a lazy day, where you were just too tired to really make anything at all? I have had PLENTY of those! This is probably one of the first pinterest recipes that I have ever tried! It is funny, easy and definitely a great finger food dish to try! It is great for the football or basketball season when you have company over and you want to make a dish for the masses. I sometimes make it  this when I am wiped out by all the things  I had done that day, I will throw this in the oven for a quick bite.  All you need is 3 ingredients for the basic pizza muffins and any additional ingredients, is if you want to have additional toppings. Any guy, girl or kid ( with supervision and help of course) could make this easily! I always feel better about eating these because it is mini portions 😉

 

What You Need:
-Pillsbury Refrigerated Pizza Dough, (but sometimes I use Pillsbury Biscuit Dough as well)
-Pizza Sauce or Marinara Sauce
-Shredded Cheese
– Toppings -( i.e.- Pepperoni, sausage, etc… – whatever topping you choose)
-Cupcake Tin (I happen to use  muffin tin so the pizzas became bigger)

  • Non Stick Cooking Oil Spray

Directions:
1.)Preheat oven to 375 degrees  and spray the tin with non stick cooking oil spray the cupcake pan.
I separated the dough into 4 equal parts; there wasn’t enough to do more but maybe you could get 6 in cupcake pan. Push the dough into the molds; try to make the dough cover the sides.

3.)Bake for 15 minutes and you can see  around the outside edge of the crust , the dough should have turned light to medium brown when you take it out of the tins .

 

4.) Now get ready to have SOME AMAZING TREATS!

  3. When the noodles and filling are ready to go, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a glass casserole dish by spraying with non-stick spray.
  4. Lay out a few noodles at a time. Place a few tablespoons of filling on each noodle and spread to cover from edge to edge. The filling does not need to be thick because once the noodle is rolled up, it will be compounded. Make sure to spread it all the way to the edges of the noodles.image (7)
