|Easy focaccia pizza|
Lately my son has wanted focaccia for at least two meals a day. A warm, buttered square for breakfast, and a ham, pepperoni, and mayo focaccia sandwich for lunch. Last week I doubled the recipe and froze about 22 nice squarish pieces of focaccia. We are almost through that batch. This week, since we're on summer vacation, I decided to use some of that focaccia for some quick pizza for lunch. I knew it would be good, but it's acutally way better than I even anticipated. The focaccia makes for an almost biscuit-like crust, but with enough body to hold together and get crunchy on the bottom and around the edges. The open cut soaks in the sauce, and the whole thing is just easy and delicious. I'm sure this would be great on store-bought focaccia too, but it's so easy to make, I really recommend you try it.
Focaccia Pizza for One
(recipe is easily multiplied to suit your crowd)
- 1 piece of focaccia (about 4 x 5 inches) sliced in half horizontally
- 4 tablespoons pizza sauce
- 1/2 cup (approx.) shredded mozerella cheese (or some Italian cheese blend)
- 2-4 slices deli size pepperoni, cut into little squares
- other pizza toppings, as desired
Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment and lay the two focaccia halves on top, cut side up.
Spread about 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce onto each focaccia half. Sprinkle with cheese and top with pepperoni or other pizza toppings.
Bake at 450 degrees for about 8-12 minutes, depending on how done you like your pizza.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before eating.
