Now we know that pizza is a baked pie-like crust covered with seasoned tomato sauce, cheese, and often other toppings such as sausage or olive. But as adaptable as it is already, why not try to make it portable in the form of pizza cups?! That's exactly what I did. It was really a nice lunch packed with the goodness of turkey, all the veggies that went in there. In any shape, it will still be a much loved food!
Basic Pizza Dough
1 pkg. dry yeast
3/4 c. warm water
1/4 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. oil
1 tsp. sugar
2 cup flour
Mix ingredients together, adding flour last. Cover and let rise 1/2 hr. Top with whatever ingredients you like!
For pizza cups, roll out thin discs from the dough. Place them in the muffin cups and bake till the cups are done. Put some homemade marinara sauce. Then make layers of browned turkey sausage, a slice or two of green & red pepper, a tbsp or two of caremalized onions, a pinch of dried oregano and lots of shredded mozzarella cheese. Let it cook in the hot oven till the cheese melts. And get ready to enjoy the hot pizza cups with warm marinara sauce!
