Just spread the dough in the greased muffin tin. Spread some sauce, add the toppings and finish with grated cheese. pop into the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes. Once the cheese melts and the muffin turns golden brown, it is ready.
You can even freeze the baked muffins and just reheat them as needed.
