Pizza Muffins

(Adapted from My Little Gourmet)


1 Pizza Dough 13.8 oz (I used a Pillsbury whole grain version) or homemade dough
1 cup Pizza Sauce
3/4 cup Mini Pepperoni (or any pizza toppings your kids love)
1 cup Mozzarella Cheese

How to make pizza muffins Hip2Save


Unroll dough on a cutting board or baking sheet. Spoon sauce over the top of dough and then sprinkle cheese and pepperoni (or any other toppings) on top. Cut dough in half, and roll up each side. Then cut each long roll in six slices. Put the slices in a well greased muffin pan with the pinwheel side facing up. Sprinkle with a little additional cheese and pepperoni if desired. Bake at 400 degrees according to dough instructions for about 15-20 minutes (mine took about 18 minutes). When done, let cool and then use a knife to cut around the edges and remove from pan. Makes 12 muffins.

Serve when cool or freeze for later in an airtight container or bag. I pack lunches the night before, so I’ll just take a couple from the freezer, place in the fridge with rest of the lunch items and they will be all ready to go in the morning.

Pair one or two pizza muffins with your kiddo’s favorite fruits or veggies and you have a quick and fun lunch.  Keep this recipe in mind for a great, simple party appetizer as well – perfect football watching food.

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
