Miniature Tomato Pesto Pizzas

A very easy to put together recipe. I buy canned pizza dough or frozen home-made dough and store bought pesto sauce for these yummy, filling appetizers. You can use any kind of veggies as toppings. This recipe makes about 12 mini pizzas depending on the size of your rounds. Serves 4 , 3 pizzas each.

1 (14 oz) can of pizza dough
Basil Pesto sauce --- about 4-5 tbsp
Sliced Tomatoes- 2
Grated Mozzarella cheese- 1 cup
Optional- Sliced Mushrooms, Olives etc

Preparation:-Preheat oven to 425 degree Fahrenheit.
Gently roll out the pizza dough on a floured, clean, counter or board. Using a round cookie cutter or a sharp edged bowl, cut into circles. transfer these circles into a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Spread a thin layer of Pesto on each round, then top it with sliced tomatoes, and finally top with an even layer of Grated Mozzarella.
Bake for about 10 minutes then reduce the temperature to 400 degrees F and cook for another 5-7 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges and cheese has melted.
Serve warm.
