Easy Homemade Individual Pizzas

Tonight, as I drove home from work, I called my kids, who agreed pizza (homemade) would be a good supper. My daughter started our usual dough in the bread machine, on the manual cycle. (3 cups flour, 1 packet/Tbsp. yeast, 1 cup warm water, and whatever herbs/spices she feels like throwing in)

When I got home, I really didn't want to heat the entire house up with the oven, so I punched down the dough, let it rest briefly, then divided it into single-serving crust sized portions. I rolled each of them out to approximately 1/4-inch thick and cooked them in a preheated (non-stick) skillet on the stove top (medium heat). Basically, you bake it on one side until it starts to bubble and brown, then flip it until it is beginning to brown on the other side. It takes a couple of minutes for the first side, slightly less for the second. You end up with crusts similar to the prebaked ones from the grocery store, though not as thick. I suspect you could experiment with thickness and cooking time.

We each then proceeded to add our toppings and broiled briefly in the toaster oven, or put them in the microwave until the cheese was melted.

They turned out great, and the leftover crust will make an easy lunch for one of us tomorrow.

Thanks for that idea. I live alone and sometimes only want a small one like that. Thanks also for the recipe. (06/11/2008)

I use whole wheat, low carb tortillas for my pizza crusts. Have found that they last much longer in the drawer in my fridge than package says. When I open a jar/ can of tomato sauce, I fill several little plastic containers [the ones that you get coleslaw in at take-out] and freeze them. Put thawed sauce on the tortilla, add toppings and cook for 4-5 minutes in convection oven. Kitchen isn't heated up and dinner is ready in a few minutes. (06/12/2008)

Instead of tomato sauce, I really prefer tomato paste, usually getting garlic or Italian flavored. I have done pizzas with tortillas in a pinch; but prefer the yeasty flavor of a crust. (I also prefer making my own tortillas; but most often keep a bought package around.)

I also like to put the bulk of the toppings under the cheese--keeps them from over-browning if I run the pizza under the broiler. (06/12/2008)

I use the canned refrigerator biscuits and make these with the kids. Simply flatten them like you would any dough and put the sauce, etc on. They can choose their own toppings and make it themselves with supervision. Put them on my silpat and about 6-8 minutes later they're done! (06/13/2008)

I cook them on the BBQ grill. It doesn't heat up the house and is the most like a dry brick oven. Also the crust recipe is super easy. It doesn't require yeast. It's just flour, water, oil, corn syrup and salt, I think. It is like a really thin cracker crust as we like here in St. Louis. I got the recipe by googling copycat recipe Imo's pizza. Here is the link.
