Mini deep dish pizzas

I first found this recipe at Pinterest.  After tried it out, both Eric and Daisy likes the mini pizzas. Eric even took them for school lunch.  I take note here just in case the recipe is forgotten.

 

Ingredients:

  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • mini pepperonis (I don’t have mini pepperonis at home, so use sliced turkey instead.)

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  Lightly oil a 12-cup muffin tin.
  • Lay tortilla on a flat surface.  Place a glass cup upside down on the tortilla, use a knife cutting carefully along the side of the cup to make 3 medium circles.  Repeat on the other 3 tortillas to make 12 circles in total.
  • Fit a tortilla circle into each of 12 muffin tins, pressing carefully to make sure there is an opening in the center.  Scoop 1 tablespoon pizza sauce into each muffin tin.  Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, topping with 4-5 turkey slices or pepperonis each.
  • Place into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cheese has melted.
  • Serve immediately.

Favorite recipes: Banana Bread

I seldom make bread because in my impression, to make a bread requires a lot of cooking skills, and only a veteran can handle it properly.  However, this banana bread recipe changes my opinion.  It is easy to follow.  I did once and the result is very satisfactory, which highly boosts my confidence regarding cooking 🙂

I adapt this banana bread’s recipe here just in case you are interested.

Ingredients

1 cup granulated sugar
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
3 ripe bananas
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt


Directions


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.
Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a small bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk and cinnamon. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until flour disappears.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto rack and cool completely before slicing.
