Pizza Cups

BM #43 Week 1 Day 1

They say Pizzas are kids favourite food..I totally disagree , even the grown ups love it , just that they don't admit . We want to eat healthy so we say no to Pizza, but actual truth is that most of us are fond of it. Well at least I am. When Valli announced the pizza theme I loved it and immediately took it up. I made the purée that very day. So one job done. The very next day I planned to make at least two posts but my son decided to make pizzas for dinner. He makes awesome pizzas, makes the purée himself which is one of the best .So my plans fizzled out, for once I thought I could still make at least one from that list, but gave up.

The purée went into the deep freeze since my son made the puree his style. After two days I decided to make the mini pizza call them cups or bites but let me tell you that these simple cute bitings got over in a jiffy and everyone loved them for the simple reason that they were so , so mini. I love basil and adding a tiny leaf of basil to these cups gave the cups a wonderful flavour.

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup APF
Pinch salt
2 tsp oil
Mix and bind to a semi soft dough.

Basil leaves

Divide the dough into 2 balls and roll out into a big disc.
Cut circles with a cookie cutter.
Place these in a mini muffin mould.
Apply purée.
Sprinkle cheese.
Bake for 15 minutes at 150 deg or till the crust is done.
I removed these half way through and placed the basil leaf.
Beware these are very addictive and kids can finish a dozen in a go.
