Stuck inside on a rainy afternoon with nothing to do? Host a mini pizza party for your friends!
I recently hosted a group of friends in the Baking Steel test kitchen. I got to share a few of my favorite pizza recipes while showing off the power of the Baking Steel. If you know me at all, you know I love pizza...I can't get enough! When I have guests, I love to mix it up -to show how versatile pizza can be. Mini or personalized pizza's are a fun way to satisfy everyone's pizza cravings. Typically, I make 250 grams dough balls but in this case, I cut that in half so that each dough ball weighed 125 grams. Each pie can be tailored to your guests' specific tastes or dietary requirements.
For this lunch, I added the challenge of making all five pizzas at one time so we could all enjoy our meal together (Mantra to self-speed is my friend)! This requires a steady hand on the launch and a bit of time management, but also allows your guests to join in the fun of topping their own pie. So get your Mis en Place ready and create some mini pizza love!
You can make any of your favorite combinations. You need to rock the house and have everything prepped up before you stretch out your dough. This process is super fast, because you are launching all of the mini's at the same time (which also means they are all coming out of the oven at the same time, so be prepared). I actually mapped out a strategy with pencil and paper. I didn't want to miss a beat.
