  • 1 13.8-ounce can refrigerated classic pizza crust, such as Pillsbury™
  • 24 frozen cooked mini meatballs, thawed, cut in half
  • 1 14-ounce jar pizza sauce
  • 1 3½-ounce package pepperoni slices
  • ¾ Cup yellow or green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • ¾ Cup shredded pizza cheese (about 3 ounces)


Unroll the dough on a work surface. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out to a 20-by-15-inch rectangle. Cut into 12 5-inch squares. Wrap 1 dough square around each cup, and press to seal the edges. Repeat for the remaining pieces of dough. Trim any excess dough at the bottom of each cup.

Place on a large cookie sheet, open ends down. Bake on the lowest oven rack until light golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. When cool enough to touch, remove and discard the foil-covered paper cones.

Place half a meatball in the bottom of each cone. In a large bowl, mix ¾ cup of the pizza sauce, the pepperonis, bell pepper, and remaining meatball halves. Microwave uncovered on High until hot, 2 to 4 minutes. Spoon about ¼ cup of the mixture into each baked cone. Top each cone with about 1 tablespoon cheese. Serve hot with the remaining pizza sauce.

Pizza Shopping Tip

Pressed for time on a busy weeknight, but don't want to settle for frozen pizza? Start with ready-made pizza crusts. You'll still be able to add your own sauce and fresh ingredients for a homemade taste.

Pizza Cooking Tip

If you're attempting to make your own dough, make sure to keep your work surface lightly dusted with flour, or the dough may stick.
