Parmesan Mini Pizzas Recipe

“I make the dough in advance and freeze pre-baked individual serving crusts, says Jane Kaiser of Franklin, Wisconsin. "It makes dinner so easy!” The dough is tender and flavorful, and any toppings can be used.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1-1/8 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup biscuit/baking mix
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  • 1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the baking mix, Parmesan cheese, sugar, 1-1/2 teaspoons oil, Italian seasoning and 1/2 cup flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  • 2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5-6 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 3. Punch dough down; divide in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into an 8-in. circle. Transfer to two 7-1/2-in. pizza pans coated with cooking spray; build up edges slightly. Prick dough thoroughly with a fork; brush with remaining oil.
  • 4. Bake at 400° for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Spread with sauce; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake 10-12 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 2 pizzas.

"when you say "beat until smooth" are you beating by hand or with a mixer?"
