Meet the Sullivans: Mini Deep Dish Pizzas

Mini Deep Dish Pizzas

I found this recipe on Tablespoon while I was searching for something to make for Christmas morning. They looked different, fun and super simple. They were great for dinner for the two of us, but they would also be an excellent appetizer to serve at a Super Bowl party!

Makes 8

1 tube Pillsbury french bread
1 1/4 cup crushed tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 cup cooked sausage crumbles (I cooked turkey breakfast sausage and chopped it up)
2 tablespoons bacon bits (I skipped these)
1 1/2 cups Italian cheese, grated (I used mozzarella)
8 slices pepperoni

  1. Open the Pillsbury Simply French Bread and gently unroll it until flat. Cut into 8 even squares.
  2. Press the squares of bread dough into each of 8 muffin tins, which have been lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the Muir Glen crushed tomatoes, garlic powder, onion salt, chili powder, and Italian Seasoning. Spoon evenly into each of the dough cups.
  4. Sprinkle the sausage crumbles and bacon bits over the sauce in each cup. Top with cheese. Add a single pepperoni slice on top.
  5. Bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes, or until the edges of the bread cups are golden brown and the cheese is bubbly.
