It's Meat Raffle season!!! This is the best time of year and I'm here to help! Our WYRK Meat Raffle to Benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is on Saturday night and I can't wait to see what food people are bringing in! Aside from the meat, the best thing about a meat raffle is all the goodies everyone brings for the table and I think I have one that will wow your tablemates!

I went super easy to make and super easy to eat for this recipe! The idea was from Plain Chicken, they proved thy base recipe and I just tweaked a few things! I hope you enjoy!

Deep Dish Pizza Cups

  • 1 can refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • pizza toppings of your choice, I used a pepperoni stick.

Preheat oven to 375 and spray your muffin tins!

 

 

Take your stick of pepperoni or other choice pizza topping and dice them up.
Cut crescent roll dough into 8 squares.  Press into muffin cups. I had the crescent rolls with seems in them in my fridge so I just pinched the seems and then rolled them out.
Sprinkle some of the cheese (about 1 Tbsp) in the bottom of each muffin cup.  THen sprinkle a few pepperonis over that. Next, top with 1 Tbsp of pizza sauce.  Add a few more pepperonis and then more cheese and then top off with the remaining pizza toppings. And then sprinkle garlic powder over toppings.

Bake 15-18 minutes. Remove from pan and you can serve immediately. However, I found letting them sit for a few minutes formed them up a little bit and kept them a little less messy. So your transport time to the raffle should be perfect!

These are tasty and easy and perfect for your meat raffle or any other get together! This recipe makes 8 and it's all about how many tubes of crescent roll your purchase! Enjoy!
