To make the Deep Dish Pizza Cups, start by preheating your oven and spraying a 12-cup muffin pan lightly with nonstick cooking spray or olive oil. Then, take your pizza dough and divide it into 12 equal pieces. For the pizza dough, while I love to use my homemade pizza dough, you can easily use store-bought as well.

Once you have your pizza dough portioned, press a piece of the dough into each of the individual muffin pan cups.

Now is the time to customize your Deep Dish Pizza Cups. I love to make at least two or three different types of deep dish pizza cups so that everyone has options. 🙂 For some, I’ll add in pizza sauce on top of the pizza dough and for others I’ll add ricotta cheese.

Then, I top them with the cheeses.

And for some, I add pepperoni and bake.

Once they have cooked, I remove them from the oven and allow them to cool enough so that they can be safely eaten, about 5 minutes and serve.

They also make a great make-ahead meal or snack!

Once they have cooled completely, place them onto a sheet pan and allow them to flash freeze for about 30 minutes. Then, package them in freezer-safe zip top bags or containers for up to 3 months. To serve from frozen, just thaw overnight in the refrigerator and then reheat in the oven for about 10 minutes until heated throughout.

  1. I’m having a difficult time imagining ricotta in the pizza cups.  Could I just use more mozzarella instead of the ricotta?  

    1. Hi Bonnie,
      You don’t have to use the ricotta cheese in some of the varieties of pizza cups that I give – only the White Cheese Pizza Cups.
      I hope you enjoy them! Thanks!

      1. First of all, thank you so much for replying, Robyn!  Secondly, so quickly too!  I really appreciate it!   I’m anxious to make these!
