Mini Cheese Pizza


This Mini Cheese Pizza is delightful when eaten warm. Also known as fried pizza or Pizza Fritta, they are deep fried, and you make it sweet or savory with your favorite toppings. Here, I have stuffed the dough with mozzarella cheese and instead of deep-frying, I baked them in the oven for about 12 minutes at 450˚F. The baked pizza turned out superb, crusty on the outside with gooey cheese inside!


Mini Cheese Pizza

Ingredients

1 Packet (about 320g) Fresh Pizza Dough (available at Whole Foods Market)


80 g Mozzarella Cheese, diced and divided into 6 portions

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

¼ tsp Dried Italian Herbs

Red Chili Flakes
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Baking tray-lined with parchment paper



Method





Preheat the oven to 450˚F.



Press down the dough on a lightly oil surface. Then divide the dough into 6 equals balls. Roll each out into a circle. Place diced mozzarella cheese in the center of each circle, wrap the dough around filling and flatten it with your palm. Place the dough on the baking dish, seam side down, brush the top with olive oil, and sprinkle some Italian herbs, chili flakes, sea salt, and black pepper. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until light golden brown in color. Serve warm.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
