Mini Pineapple Pepperoni Pizzas!

Pizza is just one of those things…it’s hearty and just naughty enough to be really satisfying. Our family loves to make mini pizzas, and I keep the ingredients on hand, so if it’s been a crazy day and we’re all craving something yummy — pizza it is! –Mellyn

Yield: 8 personal-size pizzas

  • 1 batch French Bread (I re-posted the recipe below for your convenience!)
  • 1/2 jar your favorite spaghetti or pizza sauce
  • 4-6 cups shredded cheese (We keep our stash in the freezer. You can also use freeze-dried cheese)
  • 2 1/2 ounces mini pepperoni (about 1/2 regular-sized bag)
  • 20-ounce can pineapple, drained
  • whatever other pizza toppings your family likes

The dough:

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2 1/2 cups water — very warm
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 Tablespoons yeast
  • 4-6 cups flour
  1. Make the dough!
  2. Combine sugar, salt, oil, water, flour and yeast in order.
  3. Slowly begin adding the remaining 4- 6 cups of flour.
  4. Dough should begin to form a ball and scrape the sides of the bowl, not stick to it.
  5. Let rise until you’re ready to use it…I’ve let it go as long as 2 hours or as short as no rise at all!
  6. Divide into 8 pieces.
  7. At this point everything goes crazy at our house! The “Littles” climb up on chairs and insist on making their own pizzas in all different sizes and shapes.
  8. We use cookies sheets sprayed with oil as a working base and put 2 pizzas on each tray.
  9. Flatten dough to desired thickness…it will rise while baking…so even really flat will produce a nice crust.
  10. Spread with sauce, if desired, and add other toppings to taste.
  11. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
