Pizzetas


Here's a great way to please your casual dinner guests. You know, the people who you tell to go get their own fucking drinks from your frig. Don't bother asking your friends what they want on their pizza--they're gonna get the pizza you make, and damnit! They're gonna LIKE it!

I just made a crust from a bread machine cookbook I have. If you want to slave over this and make the dough with your own two hands, be my guest. Believe me, no one is going to care or give a shit that you let a machine do the work for you.

Make up a super quick pizza sauce using:
  • a glug of olive oil
  • chopped fresh garlic
  • finely chopped onion
  • can of tomato sauce
Bring the olive oil garlic and onion up to a sizzle and let her rip for a few minutes, til the onions get soft. Add the tomato sauce and season with any or all of the following:
  • thyme
  • savory
  • basil
  • oregano
  • red pepper flakes
When the dough beeps in the machine, you should have all of your ingredients ready to make the pizza.

We used mushrooms, artichoke hearts, and asparagus. I probably should have sauteed the asparagus with some garlic beforehand, as I did with the mushrooms, cuz they did have a good bit of crunch to them after we baked the pizza.

Form the crusts into small circles beforehand, and let them sit on wax paper til you are ready for them.

Load em' up and bake them at 450 til golden brown.

We served these with some of the veggie patties that I made, this time using broccoli, zucchini, carrots, and cheddar. I made up a quick dipping sauce for it using sour cream, mayo, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Pin It
