I'm currently experimenting with ideas to use Pizza as an appetizer for small family gatherings.
Here's my first attempt at making Pizza Cones...http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,21366.msg215375.html#msg215375
So Pizza Cones are not a good idea for appetizers, just too many associated problems.
However, in process of making the cones, I discovered a method for making a new mini thin crust pizza that could be used as an appetizer. Pics below. I don't think I've seen anything like this on these forums, so please let me know if it's been done before.
Here's the process...
1 small cutting board
1 rolling pin
1 hot & oiled stovetop grill or hot & oiled fry pan
1 toaster oven & baking screen
1.) Fire up your stovetop grill or frying pan. Oil the surface and heat to med-low.
2.) Measure 1 ounce of dough and roll it into a ball.
3.) Use about 1 teaspoon of olive oil to oil a 6" diameter section of the cutting board.
4.) Flatten the dough ball and stretch it out forming a 2 inch disk. Flip it over to oil both sides.
5.) Use a rolling pin to form a super thin 6 inch diameter pizza dough. If dough sticks to the rolling pin, oil the rolling pin too.
6.) Fry the pizza dough on the grill or fry pan just until the bottom begins to brown. Use spatula to flip it over to brown the other side too. This step is very similar to grilling pancakes. It takes just a minute or so on each side. Just 2 to 3 minutes.
7.) Remove the pizza crust and place it on the baking screen. Add pizza sauce, cheese, and sprinkle lightly with olive oil.
8.) Bake it in your toaster oven using the TOASTER a it's darkest setting, but be prepared to watch it to determine when it's done. It's done when you see the cheese bubbling up uniformly and the edges just beginning to brown. Just 2 to 3 minutes.
The entire process above takes only about 7 to 8 minutes.
Cut the pizza into quarters and serve as appetizers.
