Mini Tomato Pizzas with Ham
- For the tomato sauce
- 1 onion (finely chopped)
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves
- 500 grams crushed tomatoes (finished product)
- 1 Tbsp Tomato paste
- peppers (freshly ground)
- ½ tsp sugar
For the crust: Dissolve the yeast in 150 ml (approximately 1/2 cup) of lukewarm water and stir until smooth. Mix with the flour, olive oil and salt. Knead into a smooth dough and let rise in a warm place, or a 50°C (approximately 125°F) until double in size.
For the tomato sauce: Sweat the chopped onions until translucent. Squeeze the garlic, stir in the tomato paste and crushed tomatoes. Season with salt, pepper, and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
For the topping: Cut mozzarella into thin slices.
Rinse the tomatoes and cut into slices.
Divide the dough into 12 portions and form into small balls. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to about 15 cm (approximately 6 inches). Place on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with tomato sauce and top with ham, tomatoes, and mozzarella.
Bake the mini pizzas in a preheated oven at 250°C (approximately 425°F) for about 10 minutes. Bake until lightly brown. Serve with sprinkled with arugula and basil leaves.
