Are you guys always on the hunt for simple, quick dinner recipes that the entire family will love?? I AM!! We have our classic recipes that we make all the time, but I’m usually desperate to change things up and find new recipes the whole family will enjoy. That’s easier said than done with five kids, but we recently found a new recipe to add into the rotation that was a hit with everyone. That recipe is Deep Dish Mini Pizzas. Bite sized pizza… Do I need to say anything more? These deep dish mini pizzas were simple to put together and the perfect finger food for all! I love that you can be creative with this and change it up as you please. In place of pepperonis, you can add sausage, jalapenos, or ham and pineapple – the possibilities are endless. This recipe is also great for the kids to help out with. They love making regular pizzas, so custom mini pizzas for each kid would be great to make!!
I hope you guys enjoy making these as much as we did and can add these to the meal rotation. Here is the printable recipe for these delicious mini pizzas…
