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.
- Place one pizza base on a greased baking tray. Prick with a fork at regular intervals.
- Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°C (400°F) for 10 minutes or until the base is evenly browned.
- Repeat for the remaining dough to make one more pizza base.
- Cut each pizza base into 10 pieces approximately 50 mm. x 50 mm. (2" x 2").
- Heat the olive oil in a pan, add the onions and salt and sauté till the onions are golden brown. Remove and keep aside.
- Spread a little sun-dried tomato pesto on each of the pizza base squares.
- Top each pizza square with the onions, basil and grated cheese.
- Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°C (400°F) for 3 to 4 minutes or till the cheese has melted. Serve hot.
