Mini Pizza on Plate

No matter how you look at it, pizza is downright delicious.

And a good pizza sauce can really make a pizza taste delicious.

About the Pizza Sauce

An easy homemade pizza sauce is included in this recipe.

And the spices in it can be adjusted to the particular tastes that you like.

The pizza sauce in this recipe can be customized by adding fresh garlic, tomato paste, hot red pepper flakes or a little sugar if you prefer a sweet taste.

About the Bread

For the bread or “pizza crust”, mini-Kaiser rolls are used.

I love how Kaiser rolls are slightly crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.

Add cheese on pizza sauce

Bread from the middle of the rolls is removed to form a small “well” for the pizza sauce.

Other types of bread to use for making small pizzas include Naan bread, English muffins, sliced French bread, and even flour tortillas.

About the Toppings

And for the toppings, this pizza has mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, pepperoni and sliced black olives.
