Day 4:

Pepperoni, Ham & Pineapple PIZZA MUFFINS

Ingredients: (This recipe yields 12 pizza muffins)

Pizza Muffin - Super Bowl Snack Recipe

-Pepperoni’s (18)

-Pizza Sauce (3/4 cup)

-Finely Shredded Italian Cheese Blend (3/4 cup)

-1 can of Pizza Crust (Pillsbury Refrigerated Classic Pizza Crust)

-Pineapple chunks (4 oz.)

-3 slices of deli ham

-1 Jar of Litehouse Jalapeño Ranch (Found in the cold salad section of the grocery store.)

-Circle cookie cutter or cup / rolling pin

-12 count muffin pan / cooking spray

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and spray the muffin pan with cooking spray.

2. Open the can of pizza dough and allow it to come to room temperature.  Use a rolling pin (or the palms of your hands) to roll it into a thin layer.  Using either your circle cookie cutter or the mouth of a clean cup, cut circles out of the dough. The circles should be slightly bigger than the size of the muffin cup.

3. Using your fingers, press the dough into the muffin cups.

7. Toppings: Cut the remaining 12 pieces of pepperoni in half and place 2 slices on each pizza muffin, followed by the pineapple chunks and small pieces of deli ham. Try to spread these 3 toppings out evenly on each muffin so that every bite has one of the 3 flavors.
