Individual size pizzas on a bun or a roll that taste just as good out of the oven as they do the next day in lunches!
Step 1: Prep
Gather your tools:
Aluminum foil (optional)
Basting brush or spoon
Slap chop or knife
And your ingredients:
1 package of buns. Sesame seeds really add a nice flavor.
Olive oil. Mine is fancy garlic infused but regular works just fine.
Sauce. This one little jar is enough for the whole pack of 8 buns.
Fresh basil. This is what sets this pizza apart from the norm!
Shredded mozzarella cheese
Garlic (not pictured)
Toppings: I used pepperoni and olive but use what you like.
Step 2: Olive Oil
Step 3: Sauce
Step 4: Basil
Chop it up with scissors or a knife and sprinkle it on the buns.
It's important that the basil be added before the cheese. If you use it as a topping it will dry out or even burn.
Step 5: Cheese
Be sure to "accidentally" drop some on the foil. After broiling this becomes a chookie, which is short for cheese cookie and is crispy and delicious!
Chop up some garlic; I use about one clove for 2 or 3 pizzas. 3 cloves did this batch of 9. I like adding the garlic in the cheese step instead of as a topping because the flavor melds nicely with the cheese.
Step 6: Toppings
Step 7: Bake
Step 8: Broil
Broiling is like 600 degrees or something so let these cool a bit before your kids dig in.
