Personal Pizzas


You can easily make your own dough or use a pre-packaged kind, but those typically have egg or milk in them. I have a very basic recipe that I use when I don't have a lot of time, but if you're in a pinch and don't mind a tiny trace of milk, Jiffy makes a good pizza dough mix.

Ingredients

Dough:

2 1/2 C flour

1 C hot tap water

2 Tbs quick, dry-active yeast

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp dried rosemary (optional)

The Rest:

Rice mozzarella cheese

1 onion, sliced

black olives

artichoke hearts, diced

3/4 C walnuts, chopped and toasted

1/4 C balsamic vinegar

1-2 Tbs olive oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 375.
Combine all dough ingredients and let rise for about an hour. Punch down and knead for 5 minutes.
Caramelize the onions in olive oil and balsamic vinegar--it will take about 10 mins. In the meantime, toast the walnuts in a dry skillet, about 5-7 mins on medium heat.
Divide dough into 4 small sections, roll out each one to about 6" in diameter. Butter up a large cookie sheet or pizza pan and place the rolled out pieces on the pan. Stick each piece with a fork several times and bake for 4 mins.
Then layer on the toppings. I start with a tiny bit of rice mozzarella, onions, olives, artichokes, more cheese, then sprinkle with walnuts. Bake 12-15 mins.

I then like to drizzle a little balsamic vinegar on top before devouring! Enjoy!

Ah...you're lucky to live where they have TJ's. :( We don't have them here in CO. Hopefully someday! My sister does, so I'll have to get her to send me some!
