Ratatouille Pizza Potpies (continued)

Ingredients (continued)

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the oil, honey,
  • salt and 1-1/2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough
  • remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about
  • 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the
  • top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • In a large bowl, combine the pizza sauce, vegetables, pepperoni,
  • cheeses, honey, garlic and seasonings; divide among eight 10-oz.
  • ramekins or custard cups.
  • Punch dough down. Divide dough into eight portions. On a lightly
  • floured surface, roll out dough to fit ramekins. Cut out a
  • decorative center with a small Christmas cookie cutter or small
  • cookie cutter of your choice. Place dough over filling; trim and
  • seal edges. Brush with oil.
  • Place ramekins on a baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes
  • or until filling is bubbly and crust is golden brown. Yield: 8
  • servings.
Editor’s Note: To make this recipe in one dish; transfer filling to a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Top with prepared dough and brush with oil. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until filling is bubbly and crust is golden brown.
