This unusual mini pizza recipe features dinner roll dough as the crust, then the topping is made with eggs, cheddar cheese and tomato concentrate, for a simple yet totally satisfying flavor. Cheese and tomato together make a basic and flavorful topping for pizza, whether you are making a mini pizza recipe or a full size pizza. This recipe calls for eight eggs but use ten if yours are very small, or six if they are extra-large.
Another optional ingredient is bacon and you can cook this ahead and crumble it over the pizzas before baking them, or you could add some ham, cooked chicken or another kind of meat. Some people like to add fresh basil to their cheese and tomato pizzas, and that would make it a “Pizza Margherita” recipe. The egg adds an unusual texture and flavor, which complements these appetizers, making them perfect for brunch snacks too. Making the mini pizza crust from dinner roll dough saves time too. This recipe is very easy to double or triple, and the mini pizzas only take fifteen minutes to bake, so you can make a few batches if you want.
Mini pizza is a great idea if you are serving finger food, because these bite-size snacks are great at a buffet and they are easy to eat with the fingers. They are also good hot, warm or chilled, so they do not have to be eaten right away. What about making this mini pizza recipe when you have friends over or even when the kids invite their friends over? They are also great Superbowl party food. These little treats always disappear fast because they are so yummy.
