Want something different for dinner? How about these babies? They were SUPER easy to make and tasted delish! The kids were smitten by them which makes me look like a rock star. No complaints here. You can go crazy with the fillings on these pizzas. I used chicken and sweet peppers for the adults and turkey pepperoni and cheese for the little people.
This post is a 2-fer. Not only am I posting the recipe for these mini pizzas but I’m also giving you my top secret, super fast, pizza dough. Shhhhhh!!!
Ok, I lied. 🙂
The dough recipe works great for personal pizzas and is a great base recipe to let your culinary juices run wild with. I’ve used it to make dinner rolls by omitting the rye and cornmeal and adding fresh herbs and brushing with butter before baking. The possibilities are endless. Go crazy!
Let’s get to it, shall we?
|Give it all a whirl.|
|With your processor running add 3/4 cup of warm tap water mixed with 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Once it forms a ball let it continue to process for 1 more minute. This is the processor doing the kneading for you.|
|This is what it should look like. A big lovely mass of gluten!|
|Lightly dust a cutting board or your clean counter with flour and give your dough 1 or 2 turns worth of kneading. Just enough to coat it with the flour. Cover it with a large bowl and let it sit for 10 minutes at room temperature.|
|Now is a great time to go prep your toppings for your pizzas.|
|This is 10 minutes later. Almost doubled in size. Now cut it into 6 equal pieces.|
|See…not perfect. It all tastes the same.|
|Add some pizza sauce to the bottom, or conversely you could add a little olive oil, fresh garlic and fresh tomatoes, if you have them.|
|YUM! Yes, I’ll have another.|
