Mini puff pizzas are a mix between a mini pizza and a cheese roll. This delicious snack can be mixed and matched with whatever topping your family enjoys, and the kids will love them in their lunch boxes as sandwich alternative.
1 tbsp dry yeast
1 tsp caster sugar
1 cup lukewarm water*
2 1/2 cups 00 flour
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup grated cheese
1/2 cup finely diced tomato
2 tbsp salt reduced tomato paste
Note: you can top your pizza’s with any ingredients you like.
*To get correct temperature, dip your finger in the water, if you can’t ‘feel’ the water it is the right temperature.
Step 1: Place the yeast, sugar and water in a bowl and mix to combine. Set aside in a warm place* or until bubbles appear on the surface (if bubbles don’t appear the yeast has not been activated and you might need to start again)
Step 2: Place the flour, salt and olive oil in a bowl. Add the yeast mixture, and mix together to form a dough. Use your hands, and continue flouring them as needed. Kneed dough on a floured surface for a few minutes or until smooth and elastic.
Step 3: Divide the dough into two balls. Place on a floured tray and cover with a damp cloth. Set aside once again in a warm spot for around 30 minutes or until the balls have risen to around double their size.
Step 4: Roll the dough on a lightly floured surface until around 1/2 cm thick. Cut out mini pizza rounds to whatever size and shape you wish (I used a scone cutter).
Step 5: Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper. Top each mini pizza with tomato paste, cheese and tomato (or whatever ingredients you like). Bake in the oven for around 10 minutes or until the cheese is golden.
Step 6: Serve, freeze, or store in an airtight container.
