Mini Pizzas

Mini pizzas are wonderful for quick snacks, small meals and parties.

Tastes & Treasures cookbook has many appetizer recipes including a yummy mushroom appetizer found on page 27.

Mini Pizzas
1 refrigerated pizza dough
1 cup marinara sauce
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 small bunch fresh basil
1 medium tomato

Preheat oven to 400° F. And line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or foil so they won't stick.
Place pizza dough on a well-floured surface and stretch gently into about a 12″ x 8″ rectangle.
With a round cutter or a cup of some sort, cut dough into 18-20 rounds; place rounds 1 inch apart on baking sheet. Top each with pizza sauce, cheese, basil and tomatoes .
Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
More topping suggestions: red sauce, broccoli, roasted red peppers, basil pesto.
