Last night I wanted to create something creative for dinner. I have seen Blogs about these little gourmet pizzas before but thought it would be fun to try it myself...plus, I want my kids to try different tastes and foods. It ended up being an art project...and cooking is really just that... an art project!
I started by a quick trip to the grocery.
I picked up:
Fresh mozzarella, gorgonzola, parmesan, ricotta, brie, fontinini
Pesto, tomato sauce, raspberry jam
FRUIT & VEGGIES
Avocado, asparagus, mushrooms, green apple, pears, walnuts, basil, onion, garlic, tomatoes
bacon, sausage, pepperoni
Pillsbury pizza crust (The kind that comes in a can and rolled it out and cut it into little squares. I baked it for 5 minutes.)
I put all the ingredients on the counter and we treated each crust like a little canvas. We asked questions, "Do you think apple slices and Brie would taste good together? Humm, let's try it!". After we assembled each mini pizza, we put them back on the pan and baked them at 425 for 7-8 minutes, until the cheese was melted.
My favorite pizza was the tomato sauce, avocado, pepperoni, fresh mozzarella and basil.
The grilled onion, fresh tomato, raspberry jam and fontinini cheese had an usually GREAT taste!
My daughter, Maddie liked the Brie, mushroom, green apple and parmesan.
Everyone liked the dessert one of pineapple, pear, apple walnut on Rasp jam with parmesan cheese.
