I created this Muffin Tin Pizza Recipe when one of the editors for Taste of Home Magazine asked me to get creative with muffin tins. That week I made a chicken pot pie in a muffin tin, tacos in  a muffin tin and these pizzas in a muffin tin. The pizzas were a shoe in and were published. The tacos were a runner up, but they didn’t have room in the issue. I didn’t hear any feedback about the pot pies, so I’m guessing they weren’t impressed. πŸ™‚ I’ll have to find that recipe and publish it hear. I swear, they were yummy too.

These would make such amazing finger foods, and a great meal for the kids. My kids like to create their own. This is a great recipe to let them get creative in the kitchen with you.
