A few months back I was strolling through the supermarket in Tokyo when I came across what looked like a pack of dumpling wraps. I did a double take and upon closer inspection, realized that they were actually mini pizza crusts in disguise.
They were a little thicker than dumpling wraps and came 10 to a pack. I obviously couldn’t resist so I bought some and after a little planning and label reading I made a quick snack for the family that night...mini pizzas.
I definitely recommend trying these little guys if you’re in Japan. If you’re in the Philippines or elsewhere and can’t find them, you can perhaps use English muffins as a substitute.
Serving Size: 10 mini pizzas / Total Time: 30 minutes
- ground pork (300 grams)
- onion (1/2)
- garlic (6 cloves)
- Tenohira mini pizza crusts
- tomato sauce
- shredded cheese
- oregano flakes
- olive oil
- Chop the onions and garlic. Sauté both in the olive oil in your frying pan for 3 minutes.
- Add ground pork and a pinch each of oregano, salt, and pepper.
- Sauté the mixture until pork is thoroughly cooked. Once cooked, drain oil and set aside.
- Place the crusts on a slightly oiled pan or directly on aluminum foil.
- Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce on the crust.
- Add your desired amount of pork on top of the tomato sauce; I recommend about one large tablespoon.
- Add desired amount of mozzarella cheese. The more cheese the merrier…
- Insert tray or pan in the oven and bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees F.
There you have it…Easy-to-make Mini Pizzas.
