Sweet, salty and tangy pizzas with applewood smoked bacon, barbecue sauce and fresh pineapple hit the spot! These crispy mini pizzas make the perfect party appetizer, easy lunch or weeknight dinner.
Let’s face it. None of us like to cook much in the summer. And I’m a guilty one.
I’d much rather be lazily soaking up the sun in a sparkling pool, sipping a cold cocktail, and forgetting about my list of to-do’s. But, when I do peel myself off the hammock and cook myself a summer meal, I like it to be quick and easy!
During the warmer months, in my kitchen, food is as simple and healthy as possible. And full of belly-filling goodness. Heaping, fresh sweet corn and tomato salads. Charred steak and bell pepper fajitas. Flaky, buttery white fish with a splash of lime. That is how I cook from May to September (our summers run a BIT long here in Austin).
Another scrumptious, fast dinner solution? Homemade mini pizzas, using my favorite quick-and-easy pizza canvas – Thomas’ Bagel Thins. I use these for EVERYTHING – hot and cold sandwiches, breakfast sides, and toasted with a bit of peanut butter for a midday pick-me-up snack. They crisp up perfectly for a delicious 10-minute pizza in your oven, too!
