Holly and Heather’s Helpful Hint: Twin Takes on Pizza

by helpinghandstwins

We love all different types of pizza and these are two of our favorites to make!

This week’s theme: Pizza; shared ingredient – mozzarella cheese

Heather’s recipe: Individual Fig and Prosciutto Pizzas

fig pizza
Ingredients: Mini Naan bread, fresh mozzarella cheese, fig spread, prosciutto

Naan makes a great base for a pizza. If you’ve never heard of it it’s a flat bread that is thicker than a tortilla wrap but not as dense as a pita. Put the naan on a cookie sheet and spread 1 tablespoon of fig jelly on top. Slice fresh mozzarella cheese thinly and place on top of the fig spread. Put it in the oven on broiler setting and watch carefully. After a few minutes the cheese will melt, take it out of the oven. Top with a few slices of thinly sliced prosciutto. The combination of the sweet fig jelly with the salty prosciutto and warm naan is delicious!

Holly’s recipe: Tri-color Pepper Pizza


Ingredients: Store bought thin crust pizza dough, olive oil, pressed garlic, tomato sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese, red, yellow, orange bell peppers sliced into small pieces

This is more of a traditional pizza with a fresh-homemade taste. Spread the dough on a cooking stone and brush with about a tablespoon of olive oil, sprinkle on garlic and then pre-bake about 5 minutes at 400 degrees. Spread tomato sauce, top with mozzarella cheese and peppers.  Return to oven and bake for an additional 12 minutes or so when cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.
