I’m sorry for the lack of posts but the past few weeks has been busy for me with family activities and my Mom visiting. We always look forward to my Mom coming and time just seems to fly by when she’s here! I definitely have a lot of catching up to do with everyone’s blog posts that I have missed.
This past week we made pizette or small pizzas. I bought whole wheat pizza dough from Whole Foods and the nice thing about fresh dough, is that you can freeze it and pull it out to use anytime. When I freeze the dough I divide it into single serving size portions, roll it into a ball and then flatten the dough like a large hamburger patty. After that I individually wrapped each patty in plastic wrap and store in a freezer bag. When the dough is wrapped that way, it thaws really quickly! To make the pizette, I placed the dough between two pieces of parchment paper sprayed lightly with non stick spray and rolled it out until it was about a 1/4 inch thick. I put the dough in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes until it was semi frozen, which made it easier to cut. Then I used cookie cutters to cut out shapes and laid them on a pan lightly brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with cornmeal. Finally the pizette were topped with marinara sauce, cheese, and assorted veggies. I also sprinkled the veggies with a little bit of olive oil which helped them to cook nicely without drying out. In a preheated 450 degree oven, I baked them on the bottom rack for about 12 minutes.
These were car shaped pizzette that I made last week.
