Have "cupcakes" for dinner with these kid approved Pepperoni Pizza "Cupcakes".
This is an easy recipe the whole family will love . Loaded with flavor but light on calories these healthy pizza cups are a great quick lunch or dinner.
I am a big fan of cupcake meals because they're perfectly portioned and let's be honest - they're cute! My toddler especially loves these and thinks it's so fun to have cupcakes for dinner. I like to make up a large batch of these to have in the fridge for a quick grab and go lunch or dinner.

The base of this recipe is really simple and can be customized with different toppings. A few of my favorites are:
- Ground chicken sausage
- Turkey Bacon
Where can I find Wonton Wrappers?
Wonton wrappers can be found in the refrigerated produce section of the grocery store. If you can't find wonton wrappers, egg roll wrappers can also be used. If you use egg roll wrappers you'll just need to cut them into smaller squares (4 per sheet).
Can I use homemade sauce instead of store bought?
Absolutely! I like to use store bought when I don't have any sauce prepped. I really like to make Emily's authentic Italian tomato sauce.
How to store Pepperoni Pizza Cupcakes
Store the cupcakes in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. I do not recommend freezing.
When ready to eat, heat up in the microwave or about a minute to minute and a half.
