PIZZA CUPS


Make these tiny pizza cups for your kids party. The procedure is the same like making pizza .

For the dough:
All purpose flour / maida ....  1 cup

Fresh yeast .................... 1/2  cube (If using dry yeast - 1 tsp )
Sugar ........................... 1 tsp
Salt .............................. 1/4 tsp
Olive oil ................... 2 tbsps


1. Take the flour in a flat vessel . Make a well in the middle and crumble the yeast. Add sugar. The salt and  1 spoon of olive oil should be added on the sides. (The salt should not come in contact with the yeast ).
2.Take luke-warm water and knead the dough starting from the middle portion and gradually mix everything.

3. Using a little more olive oil knead the dough well for 2-3 minutes.

4. Oil a dish and place the dough in it well covered in a warm place to rise. It takes about 20 - 30 minutes. In winters it may take longer.


To make the Sauce
Tomatoes ... 1-2
Garlic ......... 1 tbsp
Chilli sauce .. 1 tbsp
Tomato ketchup .. 1 tsp
Oregano / basil ... 1 tsp
Salt ........... to taste
Olive oil .... 2 tbsps


1. Heat oil in a pan and saute the garlic.
2. Add the blanched and chopped tomatoes and simmer to cook.
3.Add the sauces and tempering. Set aside to cool.

To make the cups:


1. Take the risen dough and knead it well again.
2. Spread a little portion with your fingers and press it in the greased cups.
3. Leave for a few minutes. Half bake the cups in a pre-heated oven.
4. Remove them and let them cool.

To assemble the pizza cups:
Grated cheese
Olives
Capsicums ( you may use any topping you like )


1. Place the pizza cups in a baking tray.
2. Fill them with the prepared sauce and finely chopped capsicums.
3. Spread the grated cheese and place a piece of olive on top.
4. Grill them in a pre-heated oven for 4-5 minutes or until done.

Since the cups are half baked it does not take long.
You can even place them in colourful paper cups for the kids.
