9. Mini Pizza

These mini pizzas are perfect for a large gathering or simply a tea-time savory snack.
The dough is perfectly fluffy and light, as for the garnishes, the sky is the limit: you may vary as you like and according to personal taste and favorites.
What is presented here is just a suggestion.
This recipe is adapted from a recent episode of Manal's TV cooking show.


Pizza Base:
3 cups flour
1 Tbsp yeast
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup warm evaporated milk
1/4 cup oil

pizza sauce
sliced sausage
sliced olives
mozzarella cheese (sliced or grated)

Knead all the base ingredients in a stand mixer for 5 minutes.
Form into a ball, place into a bowl, lightly oil, and cover for 30-45 minutes until doubled.
Carefuly remove, and without further kneading, roll out into a large rectangle, less than a centimeter thick.
Cut into discs and place on a baking dish. Let rest 10 minutes.
During this time, preheat the oven to 400°F.
Spread a teaspoon of the pizza sauce on the surface of each disc.
Place a few sausage and olive slices, and top with a slice of cheese.
At this stage I grated some black pepper over the pizzas.
Bake for 10 minutes, remove from the oven and let stand 5 minutes, and they are ready to serve.

 صحة و عافية

Jazaki Allah Khair for sharing, perfect dough every time I make it, my family loves it :D..
I make two large pans instead, add sprinkles of parmesan cheese on top of mozzarella, brush the ends with olive oil and I bake it in 500 degree oven for 8 minutes..

Jazana wa jazakum al khair and barak Allah fiki ukhti; your comment has made my day what nice words to wake up to!
The dough is very versatile and can be used in countless fillings, toppings, and shapes.
