Personalized Individual Pizzas (Original Post 9/5/11)

This recipe only gives three variations, but you could make this anyway you wanted. This is good if you have kids who don’t like the same toppings on pizza or if you are having a sleep over. It can also be used for a small gathering of friends as well. It is pretty much a do it yourself kind of thing, so all you need is the dough and any toppings you want.


Cornmeal, if desired

1 can (13.8 oz.) Pillsbury refrigerated classic pizza crust

2 tsp. olive oil

1/4 cup pizza sauce

1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (2 oz.)

1 1/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz.)

Italian Sausage Pizza:

1/8 lb. bulk Italian sausage

1/2 small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)

1/2 tsp. chopped fresh oregano, if desired

Margherita Pizza

1 TBS. shredded Parmesan cheese

3 to 4 (1/4-inch-thick) slices plum (Roma) tomato (about 1 medium tomato)

1 TBS. thin fresh basil strips

Pepperoni Pizza

8 to 10 slices of pepperoni (from 3 oz. package)


Heat oven to 425 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray, sprinkle with cornmeal.

Do not unroll dough. Cut roll of dough into 4 equal pieces; shape each piece into a ball. Roll or press each  ball of dough into a 5-inch round making edges slightly thicker to form a rim. Place the rounds on the prepared cookie sheet; brush each with oil.

Bake 6-8 minutes. Top each round with 1 of the variations above. Bake 10-13 minutes longer or until crust is deep golden brown and cheese is melted and bubbly.
