Frozen Pocketless Pizza

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by BeachGirl

I started making these yummy little pizzas so I could have a quick hot lunch in just minutes in the toaster oven but not the gazillion saturated fat-grams in most pizzas. We often serve them as an impromptu appetizer. I especially like these, because their crust gets very crispy - the way I love it! Take this basic idea and add your favorite toppings. I always add onion, and red peppers.

Loved this idea! So easy to make-up and then so convenient, when you want one! This is great for after school snacks, or anytime. I like them for a quick lunch! I made them as you suggested, pepperoni, cheese, red peppers, onions and some with mushrooms! M-m--m-m! The best part is, they are healthier than normal quick pizza's! Thank you so much for posting this great recipe!
