Just one of several delicious options in a serious of mini-pizza recipes.


Basil sauce:



Combine all the sauce ingredients and set aside.

Toss the asparagus, tomatoes and eggplant in a bit of the basil sauce and place on a pre-heated grill. Cook for a scant 4 to 5 minutes or until slightly tender.

Generously coat each dough round with some of the basil sauce and top with the grilled vegetables. Layer slices of mozzarella on top of the vegetables and brush with the remaining basil sauce.


Use your favorite recipe for pizza dough and shape it into four eight-inch rounds.

Add toppings and place rounds on a greased baking sheet and into a preheated 500º F oven. Turn the heat down to 450º F and bake for about 8 minutes, or until the crust is golden.


These mini-pizzas, created by PCC Chef Lynne Vea, are an easy, mix-and-match way to sample the season’s freshest flavors. For a decidedly Northwest taste, choose fresh ingredients that are grown and produced close to home.
