Directions for Garlic Pesto Mini Pizza Bites Recipe
To begin making Garlic Pesto Mini Pizza Bites Recipe, sprinkle some salt over chopped bell peppers and keep aside till called for.
Prepare pizza dough by mixing together flour, dry yeast, salt and sugar first. Add oil to it. Start adding warm water little at a time, mixing it simultaneously. Don't add too much water at a time, otherwise the dough will be sticky.
If you feel the dough is too sticky to knead, add little more dry flour and knead until the dough doesn't stick to your fingers and you can comfortably knead it. Knead well for about 4-5 minutes. Cover and keep aside for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, remove the garlic cloves from the pod and peel them off.
Press them hard with knife or any object so that they get crushed. This is needed to help them release their flavour easily.
Heat a medium saucepan, add oil and roast the garlic on medium high heat until they darken a bit and gets softened. Remove on a plate and mince them.
Dust the dough with some dry flour and the surface where you will be rolling your dough.
With the rolling pin, roll the dough into a very thin disk.
Using a sharp edged small bowl or a round cookie cutter, remove the small discs out from the bigger one.
Arrange the disks on a parchment paper, lined on a baking tray or grill.
Pinch the edges of these discs such that it helps the topping to stay on the base.
Spread the minced garlic on each disc. Spread a teaspoon of pesto sauce on each disc. Sprinkle some grated cheddar cheese and arrange all the veggies.
Finally sprinkle some more cheddar and grated mozzarella cheese on each.
Bake at 425 degree Fahrenheit preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes or till done. Remove, sprinkle some chilli flakes and serve.
