RECIPE | Simple Mills Pizza Cups

For the month of January, I’m featuring some delicious recipes using my favorite olive oils!

These aren’t your regular olive oils, they’re cool olive oils from Mountain Town Olive Oil Co. A wonderful company I stumbled upon last summer when visiting Park City Utah! If you ever get the chance to visit, go check them out on Main Street. They host classes and sell a HUGE selection of olive oils and other flavored oils. You can even taste test them all with little pieces of French bread.

So for this first recipe, I used a flavor I picked up last summer called Gremolata. Gremolata is a zesty Italian herb sauce used in a variety of dishes to brighten and freshen up the flavors of the dish. But flavored as an olive oil it gives dishes that extra somethin’ somethin’ that really kicks things up a notch!

Pizza cups are a fun way to switch things up from the average pizza night. Using a muffin pan, Simple Mills gluten-free pizza dough and your favorite toppings, these cups are easy to prep ahead of time so you can easily throw them together any busy weeknight!

And as a special treat, Mountain Town Olive Oil Co. is giving Cook It Healthy readers a 10% discount on any orders in January. Just us the code “cookithealthy” at checkout! Yay.

Yields1 Serving

 1 Box of Simple Mills Pizza Dough Mix
 2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
 2 tbsp Mountain Town Olive Oil - Gremolata Flavor
 6 tbsp water
 1 small jar pizza sauce
 1 bag mini assorted peppers
 1 package spicy soppressata
 1 lb mild Italian chicken sausage
 8 oz mini mozzarella balls (or shredded mozzarella works too)

1

Pre-heat your oven at 350 degrees.

2

Mix up the Simple Mills dough according to package instructions, then place it in the fridge for about 10 minutes while you chop up the other ingredients.

3

Cook your chicken sausage, drain and place in a bowl to be ready to spoon into the cups.
*NOTE: for one box of Simple Mills dough mix, you will likely need about half the package of sausage, but you can cook up the whole package if you decide to double the recipe!

4

While the chicken sausage cooks, chop up whatever veggies you want to place in the cups. I chopped up about 8 mini peppers and some onion. About a quarter cup of each is all you will need.

5

After chilling the dough for 10 minutes, get it out of the fridge. You should be able to divide up the dough into 12 - 15 little balls. Then you will want to grease a regular muffin pan with oil, place one of the dough balls in each of the muffin cups and press it into form the cup. (PRO TIP: this dough puffs up, so the thinner you can get the dough pressed into the muffin tin cup sides, the better)

(For photo purposes, I placed mine on a cookie sheet just so I could snap a picture for y'all to reference)

6

Once all your cups are pressed into the muffin tin, pop them in the oven to bake for 4 - 5 minutes before putting in the toppings.

Once you have them back out of the oven, you're ready to load in the toppings. I did a layer of the spicy soppressata, some pizza sauce, half a mini cheese ball, veggies, sausage and topped with a halved mini mozzarella ball.
(PRO TIP: I sliced the mini mozzarella balls in half so they would stay in place better.)
Then you will bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and the crust is crispy!
