How to Make Deep Dish Pizza Cups Recipe

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. These look as easy as they look delicious! Where did you get the tiny pepperoni, in such small round lsices?

  2. i just made pizza the other night, but will definitely try this. They look so cute!!

  3. What a fun idea, perfect for game day! Pinned!

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