I found this recipe quite some time back on a site called Recipe by Photo. I have tried this recipe and a few of my family members. All of us said that we would continue making these pretty simple to make mini pizza cups... especially if you love pizza as we do. Deep dish pizza ain't got nuthin' on these babies. Dive into these savory pizza bites and let all your dreams come true!
