Pizza Cups

Pizza Cups are not my invention! The wonderful world of Google and Pinterest are choc-a-bloc full with ideas on how to makes these delicious treats.

Pizza Cups saved a heap of teenagers from utter boredom this week! I have teenagers in my house and that says a lot!

Pizza Cups

Teenager means:

– lots of noise

– abundant laughter ( at the silliest jokes)

– loads of fun

– alarmingly amounts of movement, bumping, tripping and hopping on music

– eating, snacking, munching and devouring copious amounts of food!

…..but, I love having the buzz in my house, I love feeding them, listening to them and all the happy faces, makes me a very happy mom! My children’s friends obviously know by now that if they come for a visit, they will cook or make their own food, my own children of course were horrified at first until they found out that it is “pretty cool”! So these days, I am a pretty cool mom!

The idea with the pizza cups are that you have everything ready, shop-bought meatballs, shop-bought pizza sauce, pastry and cheese. I made my own meatballs, simply because I refuse to pay R60+ for a few meatballs. You are welcome to make your own meatballs with this simple recipe!!

Place the dough circles in the bottom of the muffin pan and top with a little sauce. Place the meatball on the sauce, top with a little extra sauce and lastly sprinkle some grated cheese on top. bake for about 20 minutes and serve with chopped herbs.
