PIZZA IN A CUP/THICK CRUST PIZZA

This time I am pretty late in posting the sweet punch challenge.  Pizza was this month's challenge.  As I have already posted the thin crust pizza, I wanted to make thick crust and pizza in a cup.  This pizza cups looks cute for parties and kids will surely love it. I have used the inverted muffin tray for making the Pizza cups and before rolling I have just sprinkle redchilli flakes, grated garlic and dried Italian Herbs. Hope you all will enjoy the virtual show here. Take a look at the thin crust Pizza which I have posted earlier. I have chosen to make Basil pesto pizza.  So if you want to know the BASIL PESTO HERE IS THE LINK and FOR MARINARA SAUCE HERE IS THE LINK.



 


    


PIZZA
 
Recipe source - Pioneer Women

FOR THE CRUST (MAKES TWO CRUSTS):

Ingredients :

1 teaspoon Active Dry Or Instant Yeast
4 cups All-purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
⅓ cups Extra Virgin Olive Oil






TO MAKE THE CRUST:


Sprinkle yeast over 1 1/2 cups warm (not lukewarm) water.


In a mixer, combine flour and salt. With the mixer running on low speed (with paddle attachment), drizzle in olive oil until combined with flour. Next, pour in yeast/water mixture and mix until just combined.

Coat a separate mixing bowl with a light drizzle of olive oil, and form the dough into a ball. Toss to coat dough in olive oil, and then cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until you need it. ***It’s best to make the dough at least 24 hours in advance, and 3 or 4 days is even better.



 



The topping I used for Thick crust Pesto Pizza: 




 

Black olives
Artichokes
Onion
Roasted Asparagus
Mushrooms

the above topping are my favorite one for pesto pizza.  You can choose you own topping as well.




For filling the Pizza cup I used the following

First apply your favorite sauce then fill with the following

Colored bell peppers
Capers
Lettuce
Tomato
Pickled Chilies
Mozzarella cheese




This is kind of salad Pizza , but if you want you can also bake it with other favorite ingredients like capsicum, onion, tomato , olives and bake it.
