Pinterest Poser Challenge/Pizza Train

It's time again for the Pinterest Poser Challenge In an attempt at not being a Pinterest Poser,* every week I  detail a new Pinterest challenge whether it be a new recipe or a craft.   
**My definition of a Pinterest Poser is someone who is all pins and no substance.**

After last week's Angry Bird Pizza fail, I'm back on the pizza train.

Love this quote from Pinterest, but of course.
This week I tried out a recipe from my pal Jaima over at Ring Around the Rosies.  Yeah, that Jaima who is pretty Pinterest famous for her freezer cooking. I know her.  For real.  Not like I know Jennifer Lawrence because my physical therapist met her (and hung out with her) at the post Saturday Night Live party.  Or how I know the attractive young man in the Super Bowl Calvin Klein ad because he's my friend's nephew.  Nope, I really know Jaima (met her at BlissDom last year). Check her out.

Not only am I always looking for ways to jazz up the average homemade pizza, but I'm also always looking for gluten free recipes because we are a gluten free household.  So, this Gluten Free Mini Pizza Cups pin was perfect.  And easy.  But could I handle it?

Armed with our trusty gluten free Bisquick and my baking buddy, Wade, I dove right into the recipe.

Mini Gluten Free Pizza Cups (20)
Gluten Free Bisquick
Your favorite tomato sauce
Mini Pepperonis
Prepare biscuits according to Bisquick directions, double the batch to make 20, or use canned biscuits if you do not have a gluten intolerance. Place in muffin tins, top with sauce, cheese, then pepperoni. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

It was a simple recipe and even though my pan is dirtier than Jaima's, I think they look pretty similar.  Most importantly, they tasted very good.  We modified a bit when we realized we forgot to buy mini pepperonis--we just sliced regular sized pepperonis up.  

My kids loved them.  The only thing I would do differently is put less batter/dough mix in each muffin tin spot.

Another week, another Pinterest pin conquered--proving I am no poser.  I'm the real deal, dirty pan and all.  

(While you're heading over to Ring Around the Rosies for the awesome recipes, check out a little something I wrote.  It's about food and my Grandma, awww. Check it out.)
