Wonton Pizza Cups

A great alternative to making an entire pizza is to make mini pizzas in wonton wrappers. These also make a great fast and easy appetizer for birthdays, holidays or just for snacking on during a sports game or movies at home. For us, I happened to have some leftover wrappers from another recipe I had made and thought why not fill them with pizza toppings and have a fast and easy dinner with a side salad. I quickly threw them together and a few minutes later everyone agreed…..I must make these again. So easy yet so good.

Here is what I did:

Wonton Pizza Cups

non stick cooking spray

wonton wrappers

cooked chicken, diced pepperonis, or cooked italian sausage…although, you could also go meatless if you wish

diced peppers

canned mushrooms, drained and chopped fine (squeeze as much liquid as possible from them)

diced black olives

pizza sauce with extra saved for dipping

mozzarella cheese

NOTE: depending on how many cups you plan to make, ingredient amounts could differ which is why I did not put specific amounts of anything.

Take your nonstick muffin pan and spray each cup with non stick cooking spray. Each cup will need two wonton wrappers. First, place the first wrapper in the cup and just put a few shreds of cheese to “glue” the top wonton wrapper to the bottom. Then lay the next wrapper opposite corners on top the first. Press them down so you have a nice area to fill with your preferred pizza toppings. Above is what we used but feel free to use what you like on pizza. Each wonton wrapper gets toppings, then about 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce and cheese on top.

Bake these in a 375 degree oven for about 12-15 minutes.

Remove them from the pan immediately and serve them with additional dipping pizza sauce if you wish.
