These thin crust roasted garlic and herb pizza bites are rustic, yet chic enough to serve at a party. The combination of roasted garlic and herbs creates a yummy balance and presents a flavor explosion in each and every bite. In order to get nice bubbly crusts, preheat a pizza stone before adding the little pizzas. The hot stone immediately begins to crisp the pizzas upon contact, resulting in a better crust.
Roasted Garlic and Herb Pizza Bites
1/2 recipe 5-Minute Pizza Dough
1/2 cup prepared tomato or pizza sauce
1 bulb roasted garlic, chopped
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
Place a pizza stone in a cold oven. Preheat oven to 450. Roll out pizza dough about 1/8 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out circles from the dough. Spoon sauce over dough circles. Sprinkle with dried oregano. Top with a small mound mozzarella cheese and a couple pieces of roasted garlic. Repeat with remaining dough circles. Carefully transfer circles to hot stone and bake for 8-10 minutes or until bottoms of pizza bites are golden brown. Remove from oven and transfer to a platter. Top each pizza bite with fresh basil and thyme, a light pinch of sea salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Makes about 2 dozen.
