Quick and Simple Mini-Pizzas - Mini pizza rapide

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Another item for the birthday party: mini-pizzas, the kids absolutely adored them. The advantage of this dough is that it doesn't need to rise, due to the quantity of yeast, so there is no waiting time. This is one of Afrodite's recipes and I'm really sorry I didn't have time for it until now!

Un alt preparat pentru ziua domnisoarei mele: mini-pizza, pe care copiii le-au adorat. Avantajul acestui aluat este ca nu trebuie dospit datorita cantitatii de drojdie folosite, deci nu pierdeti vremea asteptand sa creasca. Reteta apartine Afroditei si imi pare tare rau ca n-am facut-o pana acum!

- 500 gr flour
- 14 gr active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 5 tablespoons olive oil
- 250 ml water (or milk)

Avem nevoie de:
- 500 gr faina
- 14 gr drojdie uscata
- 1 lingurita sare
- 1 lingurita zahar
- 5 linguri de ulei de masline
- 250 ml apa (sau lapte)

Dissolve the yeast with sugar in lukewarm water (or milk, if using)

Dizolvati drojdia cu zaharul in apa calduta (sau lapte, daca folositi)

In a big bowl add the flour, the salt and the olive oil

Intr-un castron mare puneti faina si uleiul de masline

Add the yeast mix and knead very well until a dough is formed (I used again the KA)

Adaugati amestecul de drojdie cu apa (lapte) si framantati bine pana ce aluatul se desprinde de peretii vasului si nu se lipeste de maini (eu am folosit robotul)

Oil the surface on which you'll roll the dough into shape (I used my glass cutting board again)
Ungeti cu ulei suprafata pe care veti intinde aluatul

Roll the dough into a rectangular shape, then brush over it a thin layer of tomato sauce (I added some dried oregano to the sauce)

Intindeti aluatul intr-o forma dreptunghiulara si puneti peste el un strat subtire de sos de rosii (eu am adaugat si niste oregano uscat)

Add the toppings you like - I used shredded cheese (Swiss and Gruyere) and prosciutto, then on top of the prosciutto more cheese

Puneti pe pizza ce va doreste inima - eu am folosit un amestec de branza Swiss si Gruyere rasa, prosciutto, si deasupra inca un strat de branza

Now starting from one larger edge, carefully roll the dough tightly

Rulati strans si cu grija aluatul

Cut into 1/2 inch thick slices, lay on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake in the pre-heated oven at 375F for 20-25 minutes.  I also brushed the tops with a little bit of tomato sauce mixed with a couple of drops of olive oil.

Taiati ruloul in felii de 1-2 cm, asezati intr-o tava acoperita cu hartie de copt si introduceti in cuptorul preincins la 180 grade Celsius pentru 20-25 minute. Eu am uns mini-pizzele cu un amestec de sos de rosii si cateva picaturi de ulei de masline.

This is what was left out of about 40 mini-pizzas. They hold very well and are equally tasty when reheated. Enjoy!

Asta a ramas din aproximativ 40 bucati. Tin foarte bine si sunt foarte bune si reincalzite. Pofta mare!

Drojdia ai dizolvat-o in toata cantitatea de lapte?

Mini piţe am si eu in plan, da' foloseam varianta Afroditei de aluat; ia s-o incerc şi p-asta :P

Am dizolvat-o in 2-3 linguri de lapte caldut, iar pe urma am turnat restul de lapte peste amestec. Asta e aluatul Afroditei, nu e altul.

Thanks for the recipe. They look yummy. Do you know if you can freeze these? I'm wanting to make them in advance for my daughter's birthday party.

Guvi said...

I'm sorry, I don't know if you can freeze them, but I cannot see why not. I would suggest, if I may, to make half the recipe in advance and freeze one or two to see if freezeing is an option.

Thank you for this suggestion. I will try this sometime this week.

Guvi said...

Well, I am glad I could give you at least an idea. Good luck and, if you don't mind, please share the result!

Thankfully my almost one year old had a long nap this afternoon, which gave me some time to get several things done today, including making these Mini-Pizzas. I tried one and it was really nice. I have put some in the freezer. I'll keep them in there over night and will defrost and try them tomorrow to see how they taste after having been frozen. (By the way, I live in Australia, which is why the times of my comments might seem a bit odd.)

Guvi said...

I'm very happy you liked the fresh mini-pizza, let's hope the frozen ones are tasty, too! Did you put them in the freezer after you baked them, or before? It would be interesting to know which way is better...
And don't worry about the comments' times, I saw you're in Australia :))

I took one out of the freezer this morning and let it defrost. I've just tried it and it's just as nice.
I baked them before I put them in the freezer.
I'm so glad this works well as it'll give me one less thing to make and do on the day before and the morning of my daughter's party.
It's my first child's first birthday so I'm still trying to learn what works.
Thank you again for this recipe. :)

Guvi said...

I'm thrilled this works out for you so well, and thank you for the feedback on the freezer experiment :). I wish your little princess "Happy First Birthday!", luck and health, and her parents to enjoy her as much as they can, because time flies when you're having fun! :)

Thank you so much. You're so sweet.
Yes, you're right. Time does fly! I can't believe she'll be one soon. My baby is growing so quickly.
Hopefully our guests will enjoy the Mini-Pizzas as well. I'm sure they will as it's a really good recipe. I'm so glad I found it. :)

Guvi said...

Wait until she starts waking AND talking :))
