As you may or may not know, I like to have fun with pizza dough. Today, I will be showing you how to make deep-dish pizza muffins. They are easy finger foods and no pizza cutter is required!
So… confession time.
When I was younger, I would watch Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee. And I don’t know why I watched it because every time I did, I would get angry that she wasn’t making everything by hand!
I mean, if I wasn’t watching Nickelodeon or the Disney Channel, I was on Food Network. Yep, I was a weird kid. I grew up with Alton Brown and Emeril Lagasse. (BAM!)
Anyway, I was irritated. But then I grew up. Funny how that works, right?
But seeing a lump of pizza dough in the grocery store inspires me like few other things can. What can I do with this? What can’t I do with this? (Steam it. You can’t steam it. So don’t try it!)
And with this, I play with pizza dough. And then I get back to you about recipes that work.
Today’s recipe that worked: deep-dish pizza muffins
My inspiration behind this recipe is that I wanted something quick and something I could eat with my hands. But most of all, I wanted this to be completely customizable to everyone’s pizza topping desires.
If someone wants plain cheese, go ahead. If you want mushrooms, pepperoni, sausage, peppers, onions, anchovies… everyone can customize their muffins the way they want to!
But you can’t put pineapple on the pizza muffins. It’s not just because I can’t eat pineapple. It just doesn’t belong on a pizza.
Hey! Just kidding! You can put pineapple and ham in your little pizza muffins. I’ll just judge you. Silently. From afar. 🙂
What kind of toppings do you like on your pizza? Is pineapple seriously a choice for you? (Really??) Use #FDLFoods on Twitter or Instagram (I’ve been working on my insta-game!). I always want to see what you lovely folks are cookin’.
Also, I’m testing out metric measurements in my recipes. If it helps, let me know in the comments below!
