Stuffed Pizza Cupcakes

I’ve finally started Christmas shopping. Last year I had most of it done by the very first week in December. Yeah, I was a little nuts wasn’t I? Nuts or extremely genius I’d say. This year, I’m probably going to do a lot of my shopping online. Since I’ve stopped blogging at Saving with Amy, I’m very much less in-tune with the current deals and steals across the web.

It’s a weird feeling not being on top of the latest deals.

But my sanity is currently intact so I’m not going to complain. It took a long time to make my decision to quit blogging deals and in the end, it was best for me and my family. And now I get to spend my time making yummy food and fun DIY projects to share with you!

These, my friends, might just be your family’s new favorite snack. When I made these, I had no idea how excited that my family would get about them. They have been requested over and over again. Hubby even wants me to make some for him to take for lunches.

There is nothing better than making something that is requested a second time. Well at least in my book anyways.

I made these earlier in the day and just reheated them for dinner and they were perfect. You could just make them on demand, but I needed the daylight for my pictures. But it goes to show that these are great for making ahead of time for a party or lunches.

You start by rolling out a store-bought pizza dough. Get it as long and flat as you can. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

Next, spread about 1/2 a jar of pizza sauce over the entire pizza dough, leaving about an inch around the edges.

Then sprinkle the entire thing with mini pepperonis. I was going to use the regular size, but when I came across these, I thought they might work better for this. And I was right! So glad that I used the smaller. It made it possible to get a bite of pepperoni in each bite without them trying to separate.

Then cut the dough in half.

Place about 4-5 pieces of cut up string cheese across the dough like this.

Then proceed to roll the dough up. Once rolled, cut it into 1 inch pieces doing your best to keep all the fillings inside.

Place the rolled up pieces into a greased muffin pan with the swirled part facing up.

You’ll top with a little more mini pepperonis and some shredded cheese before baking. Then bake them up and you’re done!

SO amazingly yummy! Everyone will be bound to love these. Come on, pizza dough filled with sauce, pepperoni, and cheese? I think so!

  2. Tried these and loved them! Except I didn’t use the string cheese, just shredded mozzarella. Will definitely be making again, thanks!

  3. How many does it make?

  4. Mark Horine says

    Love those mini-pepperonis – but we microwave then a little bit before using them, enough to make them crunchy. This pull the extra oils out hem before using them in pizzas.

  5. Do you use the regular or mini muffin tins?

  6. That’s an awesome idea! Thanks!

  7. Patsy Perkins says

    That looks good i need to try it

  8. Amanda Leighton says

    Have you ever frozen these? If so, what’s the best way to reheat?

  9. I haven’t tried that yet! But I would probably say that you would want to heat them for a minimal amount of time, maybe about 15 seconds. See if they are done and if not, then try 10 or 15 more seconds. That is a GREAT idea Amanda. Everybody absolutely loves these and to have them ready to pop into the microwave would be perfect. 🙂

  10. Hi Cathy! I used regular for these, but I have made them with the mini before. It’s a little messier to make, but they are more bite-size. I don’t personally like eating a ton of pizza (or pizza muffins), so I like them smaller anyways. Too much bread and carb overload! lol

    Hey is it okay if I make my own pizza dough?

  21. Hi! Yes of course! Your homemade pizza dough would probably even taste better! I would just try to get it fairly stiff and not too sticky otherwise it may be difficult to roll. But go for it! Let me know how it turns out!
