You all know I couldn’t go too long without posting another recipe with wonton wrappers. (For you newbies, they happen to be one of my favorite ingredients!)
In honor of football season and fun gametime apps, I decided to turn everyone’s favorite pizza ingredients into cute little “Easy Pizza Cups”! These couldn’t be more simple. Bake up some wonton shells, fill them with your favorite pizza toppings, pop them back in the oven for a bit to melt the cheese, and voila! These adorable little pizza cups are yours to enjoy. And let me tell ya – they will easily disappear before halftime if you’re watching the game!!
The fun thing is that they are completely customizable. And if you have kids around, or want to get friends involved in customizing their own, these are a great idea for a make-your-own-appetizer set up. Everyone will love tossing in their favorite toppings, and then crunching into them once they are cooked to perfection.
Definitely a fun twist on serving pizza. And in my opinion, much cuter — which is of course the bigger issue. ;)
These easy pizza cups are a great way to serve pizza for appetizers…with a crunch!
24 wonton wrappers
1 cup pizza or marinara sauce
your favorite pizza toppings (I used pepperoni, chopped green and yellow peppers, onions and mushrooms)
2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Press the wonton wrappers into the bottom of a mini-muffin tin, making sure that the edges do not curl in to block the opening of the “cups”. Bake for 7 minutes until the cups are firm.
Fill with 1 teaspoon of marinara sauce, then fill with your pizza toppings. Top with a generous pinch of shredded cheese, and a sprinkle of Italian seasonings. Repeat with remaining pizza cups. Then bake for an additional 7-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
