Roll out your pizza crust onto a floured surface. Take a cup and use the rim to make 12 circles. Lay those circles into your muffin pan, pulling up the sides to cover the edges of each muffin.
Sprinkle cheese into the center and any desired toppings you might like (We used sauteed mushrooms), then ladle one spoonful of sauce onto each!
Bake for 20 or so minutes at 400 degrees and you’re done!
Serve at your next game watching party!
