Personal Pizzas Recipe

by Beth Montgomery on May 29, 2010 · 1 comment

in Frugal Cooking, Main Dish Recipes, Recipes

I love jalapenos and banana peppers my pizza.   Unfortunately for me, I’m the only one in my family.   In fact, I’m told that that juices actually infect the rest of the pizza, if I try to put it in just a tiny part.   That’s not our only problem though.

My husband, Scott, wants sausage, ham, pepperoni, mushrooms (gag!), and onions.   Izy wants just plain cheese pizza.   Ady wants sausage, pepperoni, and chicken.   And, I want pepperoni, sun-dried tomatoes, green peppers, and those jalapenos and banana peppers.   See our problem?   We could compromise and make a pepperoni pizza, but where is the fun in that?

So here’s my solution

- – Ingredients – -

Crust

  • 2 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup Warm Water
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 2 TBSP Active Dry Yeast
  • 2 TBSP Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Salt

Pizza

  • Toppings
  • Cheese
  • Sauce

- – Directions – -

  1. Depending on how long it takes for your oven to heat, you’ll want to preheat it to 425 sometime during this process.
  2. Combine the yeast, sugar, and warm water in a bowl until dissolved.   Set aside for approximately 1o minutes until creamy.
  3. Add flour, salt, and oil.   Beat until you have a smooth dough.   Set aside to rest for approximately 5 minutes.
  4. Divide dough into 4-5 pieces and give them to your children to play with make their own pizza crust.   Have them roll it into a ball, then flatten it into a circle.   They can pick how thick and how big their pizza will be. Just make sure it’s not so thin it will fall apart easily or not be strong enough to hold the toppings.   Or, you can do this yourself, but kids are more likely to eat things they make!
  5. Bake the pizzas for about 10 minutes on cookie sheets or baking sheets.
  6. Lay out all of the toppings and let them design their own pizzas.
  7. Bake an additional 10-12 minutes until crust is golden brown and cooked through.
  8. Enjoy!

- – Cooking Tips & More – -

  • Save Money - Depending on sales and your tastes, make your own sauce, use spaghetti sauce, get pizza sauce, or use plain tomato sauce.
  • Make It Healthier – Instead of all-purpose flour, use 1/2 wheat and 1/2 all-purpose flour to make wheat crust.
  • Get Creative - Did you realize that pizzas don’t have to be circular?   Or even rectangular?   Oh no, they can be triangles, hearts, or even Mickey Mouse’s head with pepperoni eyes.
  • Freezer Cooking - Single?   Make these and freeze the extras to pop in the oven for a quick personal meal!   Not single?   Double up or freeze the extras.   They only have to cook at 450 for about 12-15 minutes and are much cheaper than buying frozen personal pizzas.
  • For Kids - Having a party?   Don’t worry about food!   Let them make their own pizzas.   They’ll love it.
  • Make It Easier - Yes, you can always buy pre-made pizza crust to make this a lot easier.
  • Encore Meal - Use any left over pizza crust and toppings to make your own pizza rolls.   Just flatten out small squares of dough, stuff with toppings, and then fold the dough to cover the toppings completely.   Cook with the personal pizzas and freeze for a quick lunch or dinner later!
