Pizza Bites

When I saw this pizza bites in Hesti’s Kitchen, I was excited to give it a try. It looked soooo cute. We like pizza in this family and I’ve made pizza so many times. Of course I was happy when I saw this. It looked different. And I immediately gave it a try.

The tricky part was only when putting the filling in the dough and then shape it into a ball again. You have to be really careful not to put too much sauce in it. Otherwise you’ll have wet pizza with soggy bread. Who wants pizza like that? I don’t. So have to be a bit wise with the filling.

Ingredients:

  • 500g all purpose flour
  • 60g sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 60ml olive oil
  • 2 tsp dry yeast
  • 250ml warm water

 

Fillings:

You can use pretty much anything you like for the filling (just how you like your normal pizza). But here I use,

  • salami
  • paprika, sliced
  • onion, sliced
  • mushroom, sliced
  • tomato sauce
  • oregano & parmesan for topping

How to:

  1. For the bread: mix all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. If you use standing mixer, turn on the mixer with low speed and pour the water slowly.
  2. Then pour the oil, knead for 5 minutes (by mixer) or 7 to 10 minutes by hands.
  3. Let it rest to rise for at least 30 minutes or until the dough doubled in size.
  4. For the filling: mix paprika, onion and mushroom in tomato sauce. Set aside.
  5. Divide the dough into 15 pieces, form a ball, flatten it and fill with tomato sauce mixture and 2 pieces of salami. Place it in your baking tray / dish.
  6. Repeat the process. And let it rise again until almost doubled in size.
  7. Preheat your oven to 180 C.
  8. Brush the pizzas with milk (gently), and sprinkle some parmesan and oregano on top. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Serve warm.

The result was really good. The bread is moist and fluffy (love it!) and the filling is just enough to give it a pizza-y kind of feeling. Good for parties too, and by shaping them like this, it’ll stay warm longer than the normal pizza.
