These adorable little pizzas were a fun way for Miss F and I to have dinner without a major battle over pizza toppings. We have totally different tastes, but we would never be able to finish two whole pizzas. I don't like making pizzas with half toppings, it never seems to cook properly. These were fun to assemble and even more fun to eat. She and I took down the entire plate. When C is home for dinner, I would probably have to double the recipe. These would be fantastic as a party app as well. The recipe is from The Comfort of Cooking.
1 teaspoon yeast
½ cup warm water
1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup crushed tomatoes
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Stir together the yeast and warm water in the bowl of a stand mixer, let stand for 5 minutes. Add the flour, salt, sugar and oil to the bowl. Knead with the dough hook for 5 minutes, then shape into a ball. Place the dough, covered with a towel, in a warm place for 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Roll out the dough on a well floured surface, stretching into a 12”x8” rectangle. Use a round cookie cutter to cut the dough into circles. Place the rounds onto a Silpat or parchment lined baking sheet. Top each with the crushed tomatoes, cheese and any desired toppings. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Serve.
