How To Make The Mini Pizzas
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees on the bake setting.
Cut, slice, and chop your toppings.
Slice the buns or baguette in half.
Grease a cookie sheet or any flat pan with a small amount of olive oil.
Spread the pizza sauce over the top of your bread choice.
Cover the sauce with the shredded cheese.
Add the toppings.
Arrange the mini pizzas on the pan and bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese melts and starts to bubble.
The great thing with the mini pizza is that you can turn it into a gourmet appetizer by using specialty cheeses, herbs, and creative toppings.
Blue cheese, goat cheese, or cheddar can be topped with sun dried tomatoes or even a bit of arugula lettuce and a dash of olive oil. The buns can then be quartered and served as tasty appetizers.
It’s the cottage so let your imagination run wild, be creative, and experiment with different combinations.
