This recipe makes 6 individual servings of pizza which are pre-baked first before adding toppings and finishing off in the oven. So it’s ideal if you have kids that are picky eaters (or if you have meat eaters and vegans in the family): everyone can choose their own personalized toppings.Install a paddle blade in the stand mixer. Add the first 7 ingredients to the bowl; Blend on low speed until combined. I weigh my ingredients for this recipe because baking is a science and you get more accurate results that way.
Let the dough rest,
Use an oiled spatula to separate the dough into six equal portions and transfer it to the mini pizza pans.
Spray the middle of the piece of plastic with a light misting of oil. Lay the plastic, oil side down, over the first portion of dough. Use your hands to flatten the dough and spread it out to the edges.
It will be about 1/4″ thick or so. At the outer edge, raise the dough around the lip of the mini pizza pan so it’s thicker than the centre.
Then it's just a matter or pre-baking the crusts. You can freeze the crusts for later or add your toppings and bake again.
