Mini Pizzas can change your regular breakfast a lot! We as Turkish people enjoy having a kind of borek or pogaca at breakfast, so savory pastries are not just snack for us; we love to start our day with them! If you love developing new recipes for breakfast to surprise your family or to spoil yourself, try these mini pizzas!
The size of these pizzas make them cute and more appealing. You can absolutely make it bigger or at regular pizza size using the same ingredients, but I prefer this bite size version. I must warn you about something though, these mini pizzas are as fluffy as this pogaca and you can’t feel satisfied with a few of these! You will want to eat more right after you get your first bite!
You know the crust is the significant part of a pizza. If it’s how you like, topping options are limitless. I topped my mini pizzas with cheese, green pepper, tomatoes, and sujuk, a kind of Turkish sausage. I used just dried oregano as a spice and it makes a scrumptious combination with other ingredients. You can definitely add chili or black pepper as well. These are the main toppings most Turkish women prefer and you can find similar mini pizzas with this topping at some Turkish pastry shops too!
If you can’t find sujuk in your area, you can replace it with sausage, bacon or salami. Just skip these if you want to make a vegetarian version.
I love them when they are still warm since I think the flavors stand out more, but they are still so tasty when cold. As it’s already picnic season here, I’m planning to put some of these mini pizzas into basket next time we arrange a picnic.
