Grab your nonstick muffin tin for these perfectly portioned pizzas. You can leave out the turkey pepperoni if you prefer a meatless pie, and top these with sautéed peppers, onions, mushrooms, or spinach to make deep dish veggie pizzas instead. Great garnishes include hot pepper flakes and chopped fresh basil.
