Pizzetta squares

Posted on July 22, 2009. Filed under: pizza | Tags: , |

Pizzettas are little individual pizzas from Sicily. They are nothing more than tiny pizza bread squares. Here they are given a whole new appeal by topping with freshly made sun-dried tomato pesto, fresh green basil leaves and caramelised onions. Of course, no pizza ever seems complete without mozzarella cheese.
You can use ready-made mini pizza bases for this recipe, but we all know nothing tastes as good as home-made bread.
This is one of my favourite snacks. It tastes great with lots of mozzarella and crusty Italian bread.
