A slice of regular deep-dish can be a calorie disaster. But these diminutive 'n decadent deep-dish pizzas are totally innocent and totally YUM!!!
Two 10-oz. packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 tbsp. chopped garlic
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup canned crushed tomatoes
1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion power
1 package Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust refrigerated dough
1/4 cup reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, thoroughly mix spinach, shredded cheese, chopped garlic, and salt. In a medium bowl, mix crushed tomatoes with seasonings.
Roll out dough into a large rectangle of even thickness, at least 12" X 9". Evenly cut dough into 12 squares. Place each square in a muffin cup, and press it into the bottom and up along the sides.
Evenly distribute spinach-cheese mixture among the cups, about 3 tbsp. each, and firmly pack it in.
Evenly top with seasoned crushed tomatoes, about 1 tbsp. per cup, and sprinkle with Parm-style topping, 1 tsp. per cup.
Bake until dough is firm and golden brown and filling is hot, about 15 minutes. Enjoy!
