Polenta Mini Pizzas

This is a tasty snack or lunch that I came up with after reading the suggestion on the back of a polenta tube. This is how I made it, but you could also use mozzarella in place of the ricotta, add some pepperoni, etc. These would also make really cute appetizers.

  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Heat olive oil on griddle or in frying pan on medium/medium high.
  3. Slice polenta into six 1/2 inch rounds.
  4. Fry polenta according to package directions. If there are no directions for frying, fry 5 minutes per side.
  5. Remove from griddle/pan, and place on a baking sheet. Prepare each slice like you would a pizza, layering 1 tablespoon pasta sauce, a basil leaf, 1 tablespoon ricotta, then 1 teaspoon parmesan. Broil 2-4 minutes until lightly browned.
  6. Note: Be careful when removing from the oven, especially if you're using a flat baking sheet. The polenta likes to slide around! Serve.
