Mini Mediterranean Pizza Recipe

I was on a mini-pizza kick and had already served up Mexican and Italian variations, so I opted for a Mediterranean version and came up with these. —Jenny Dubinsky, Inwood, West Virginia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 5 min. YIELD:4 servings

"I can't believe no one else has tried this! It's a healthy contest winner, and worthy of the honor. It was easy to make and it got thumbs up from everyone and I have two picky children. The only change I will make is to use black olives next time, as my kids prefer them. I served this with "easy Caesar salad", and will definitely add this to my list of keepers."
