It is a gorgeous day here. I've been folding laundry and washing dishes. I took a break to make pizza cups for Tigger's advisory, and deliver them, and now I'm up for more dishes.

Pizza Cups

8 rolls of Pillsbury Garlic Butter crescent rolls
6-12 oz spaghetti sauce
4-8 cups shredded cheese
toppings

The tricky part is lining the cupcake pans with the crescent rolls. The spoon spaghetti sauce into each cup. For cheese cups, just fill the rest of the way with cheese. For pepperoni, layer slices and cheese - I generally start and end with pepperoni, since I make some cheese and some pepperoni.

Bake at 375°F for about 15 minutes, or until the cups are golden and the cheese is bubbly.

One cannot make too many pizza cups for teenagers. Tigger's advisory has 8 or 9 kids, and they eat 24 cups in about 3 minutes.

Flar just got home. Looks like time for an early lunch today.

oh these sound good, I might have to try finding fat free stuff to do it with. :)

When you look for a substitute for the crescent rolls, remember that these create the structure that makes pizza cups a finger food.

I use turkey pepperoni, which tastes enough like pepperoni to raise no complaints from the kids or my hubby. That helps a little with the fat.

For cheese, use low-fat mozzarella, or 2%, but rather than try non-fat cheese (it doesn't melt well), try putting a spoonful of low-fat ricotta, topped with real cheese for favor. That cuts the fat and keeps a lot of flavor.

Also, the more veggie fillings you add, the less cheese you need. That's a great way to make it healthier.

Yum, thanks for sharing this recipe. I will have to try it some time.
