What you’ll need:
One can crescent rolls
2 cups of shredded cheese (I used a mozzarella cheddar blend)
8 oz of spaghetti sauce
One TB butter
one non-stick muffin pan
Servings 4 (2 pizza muffins per person)
Step 1: Heat Oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Remove crescent rolls from package and cut each triangle (there are 8 per package) into about 12 pieces. Each triangle cut up will make one muffin. Set these aside.
Step 3: Time to start assembling your muffin. Put about six pieces (half) of your cutup crescent triangle into one of your muffin cups. (Don’t do what I did and use paper muffin liners. Even though crescent rolls are very buttery, they will still partially stick to the liners. Use a non-stick muffin pan or grease the cups with cooking spray or butter). When placing the crescent pieces, make sure they cover the bottom and part of the sides. You are basically creating the bottom cup.
Step 4: Put about a tablespoon of cheese on top of the crescent pieces in the cup.
Step 5: Place about a teaspoon of sauce on top of the cheese you just placed in the cup. (If you want to add any pre-cooked meat or vegetables to your pizza muffin, do that here as well)
Step 6: Place one additional tablespoon of cheese over your sauce (and meat and/or vegetables if you added them). Having the cheese on both sides helps adhere the dough from your crescent pieces in place.
Step 7: Finally, top your muffin by placing the remaining pieces of cut up crescent from one triangle on the cheese you just placed in your muffin cup.
Step 8: Repeat this until you have made 8 pizza muffin cups with crescent pieces, cheese, and sauce.
Step 9: Melt your tablespoon of butter and lightly brush it over the tops of your muffins. You can add a sprinkle of parmesan cheese, garlic powder, or other desired seasonings at this time if you would like.
Step 10: Bake for 30 minutes.
Now, you have a super tasty pizza muffin that is fun for parties, kids, or the kid in you 🙂
