Ingredients

  • 12 inches deli sliced sandwich-size pepperoni about 3across
  • 1/4 cup minced green peppers
  • 3/4 cup minced yellow onion divided into three portions
  • 1/4 cup minced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup minced broccoli
  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 cup grated whole milk mozzarella
  • 3 tbsp minced fresh basil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  5. Return cups to muffin tins, and fill four with onion and peppers. Fill four with mushroom mixture, and four with broccoli mixture. Cover each with 1 tsp of tomato sauce. Divide cheese among the cups.
  6. Bake for 3 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Remove from oven, sprinkle with fresh basil, and serve immediately
