The Recipe: Mini Deep-Dish Pizzas

from "Everyday Food"

olive oil, for muffin pan
all-purpose flour, for rolling
1/2 pound homemade or store-bought pizza dough, in 6 pieces
coarse salt and ground pepper
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella (4 oz.)
1 large tomato, coarsely chopped
desired toppings, such as cooked vegetables, pineapple & ham, pepperoni, etc.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly brush 6 standard muffin cups with oil. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out each dough piece to a 6-inch round. Fill each cup with 1 round, gently pressing dough into bottom and sides of cup. Season with salt and pepper.

Sprinkle each dough with 1 tablespoon each shredded cheese and tomato. Add desired toppings and another tablespoon each cheese and tomato. Bake until dough is golden brown and crisp, 12 minutes. Let cool 2 minutes before removing from cups.

Makes 6 mini pizzas

  1. Maybe the flavor would have more pizazz with a bit of pizza sauce?
