Mini Deep Dish Pizzas:  Simple to make and customize for everyone in the family, with just a few basic ingredients.

One of my favorite memories growing up was being able to cook dinner for my family once a week.  My mom got me an awesome kids cookbook that I still have to this day – and I used it to make fun recipes for the family each and every week.

Now that my daughter is 6 she’s very interested in cooking and baking, so it’s definitely the right time for her to start this tradition that my mom started with me.  She’s really into taking people’s orders and pretending to serve them – so she had a great idea to make mini deep dish pizzas so that everyone could order the type of pizza they wanted

Mini Deep Dish Pizzas are the perfect thing for the whole family to help make!

First, you’ll want to cut your pizza dough into 12 squares.  Place one square into each muffin tin hole.  I use my Flexipan® because you don’t need to use grease, oils, or cooking sprays with Flexipan®.

Once you have your pizza crusts in the muffin tin, put one spoonful of pizza sauce into each cup.  Add one pinch of shredded cheese and your toppings.  Then, add one more spoonful of sauce and another pinch of cheese.

Bake the mini deep dish pizzas for 13-15 minutes until tops are melted and crispy.

We love that you can make each pizza different and unique!  It’s a fun family dinner that the kids can make themselves.

I love baking with my Flexipan® that is made from silicone and woven glass. This unique blend ensures your food will be evenly cooked and nothing will stick, making clean-up a breeze.  I have always had things come out of the oven baked unevenly, with burned bottoms, but with the Flexipan® I no longer have this problem.

I use it on top of the Perforated Baking Sheet, Demarle’s  foundation piece.  This piece supports the Flexipan® and allows you to easily transport your it from your oven to cooling rack.
