Cheesy Pizza Pies this is nothing but good old pizza that is served with a bit of variation in its shape. I find these as an excellent snack to serve at kiddie parties as its super convenient for kids to eat it without messing the whole place , and the portion size is just right for a kid. These pizza pies freeze very well so you can always make these and freeze it weeks in advance so you can pop it in the oven just before the party starts and you have your snack ready with out much hassle on the party day.
I have used refined flour but if you wish you can alternatively use whole wheat flour either you can replace 50% of flour with whole wheat flour or even 100 % but this variation will may make the end product a little hard but then again its a cheesy pizza I doubt children will make out the difference .
For the topping I have used onion, corn and capsicum but you guys can top the pizza pies with toppings of your choice olives, jalapeños, baby corn , pander or if you like a non vegetarian option then chicken sausages, salami etc .
The recipe for pizza dough and pizza sauce you find in my earlier blog posthttp://veena-cakesbakes.blogspot.in/2011/10/foccasiapizza-bread.html
One Recipe Pizza Dough
One recipe Pizza Sauce
Pizza Toppings of your choice
Roll the dough with a rolling pin till its about 1 inch thick
You can use a round cutter to cut the dough in round shape. I dint have the right cutter so I have used a round plastic container to do the needful.
Place the dough in mini pie moulds alternatively you may use muffin moulds.
Add the pizza sauce until its half filled
You can add the toppings of your choice. I have added onions, corn and capsicum.
Lastly add some grated pizza cheese easily available in any Indian supermarkets. At this stage the pies can be frozen until further use. Remember to thaw the pies before you pop it in a oven
Bake at 200 degrees Celsius till done.
