This is the final recipe I am entering from the *Microwave* cookbook of the Australian Womens Weekly cookbook series & it's such a unique idea. The recipe is shown as written, but the writers noted that variations are endless as you cater to pers pref of your family. It is meant to be a kid-pleaser & family-friendly recipe & IMO would make a fun weekend cooking nite as ea family member designs their own individual crustless pizza. Times shown include ingredient prep & cooking the pizzas in 2 batches. *Enjoy* !

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine 1st 7 ingredients (grd pork thru soy sauce). Mix well & press into 6 microwave-safe dishes (see note below Re dish sizes).
  2. Mix tomato paste w/sugar + dried basil & spread evenly over meat mixture in ea of the 6 dishes.
  3. Divide sliced mushrooms, tomatoes & olives + chopped green pepper among ea soon-to-be pizza.
  4. Cook 3 pizzas at a time on MED-HIGH for 3 minutes. During this time, divide cheeses into 2 batches, ea with 1/3 cup mozzarella & 1 1/2 tbsp parmesan.
  5. At the end of the 3 min, rotate dishes & evenly distribute 1 batch of the cheeses over the 3 dishes. Cook another 3 minutes on MED-HIGH or till grd meat is fully cooked & cheeses are melted.
  6. Repeat cooking process for the 3 remaining pizzas & drain off any oil or juices from all pizzas b4 serving.
  7. NOTE RE DISH SIZE: The size of your microwave may be relevant here, but I used 5 1/2 in shallow glass bowls when I made these. Oval-shaped individual gratin dishes would work & the writers also mentioned deep saucers up to 6 1/2 in in diameter.
  8. SERVING SUGGESTION: Serve w/a family favorite salad + garlic bread, breadsticks or even halved & toasted pita pockets spread w/garlic butter. Letting the family vote on this might be another fun option. :-).
