Mini Hawaiian Pizzas

Who doesn't like pizzas?  Hot, juicy, cheesey pizzas are best with a can of coke or a bottle of beer!  What about homemade pizzas?  Build your own fresh pizzas with whatever toppings you have in your pantry/fridge.  They are quite simple to make.  As always, it's more healthy when you cook your own food.  You know exactly what you put in it. 

Mini Hawaiian Pizzas
(12 Servings ~ 245 calories each)

Basic White Bread Dough
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried basil

1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup pizza sauce or pasta sauce
6 pineapple slices from can, cut into pieces
3 slices of ham, cut into pieces
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 cup 2% milk reduced fat mozzarella shredded cheese
1/8 tsp dried oregano

1. Prepare basic white bread dough with a bread machine, add garlic powder and dried basil along with other ingredients for bread dough. Put on dough cycle, press start.

2. After the dough cycle is completed, punch dough, then divde dough into 12 pieces and cover with plastic wrap, let it rest for 15 minutes.

3. On a slightly floured surface, roll the dough out flat, use a fork and poke the dough a few times, then spread a few drops of olive oil on top of the dough surface. 

4. Using a teaspoon, spread about 1 teaspoon of pizza sauce around the dough, sprinkle some Swiss and parmesan cheese, top with ham and pineapple pieces, then pour another teaspoon of pizza sauce on top, and sprinkle some mozzarella cheese and dried oregano (I love the stringy effect of melted mozzarella cheese!)

5. Place the dough on a baking sheet that is lined with baking paper, covered with plastic wrap, let it raise for 30-40 minutes.
6. Preheat oven to 375F, bake for about 15 minutes until cheese are all melted. 

Best to serve hot!  Yum!
