Silver Dollar Pizzas

When I was growing up my mother used to make us tiny pancakes she called Silver Dollar Pancakes, served up in a “Leaning Tower of Piza” stack.  My brother and I LOVED THEM!    They were just regular old pancakes made about 2½” round, but it got us excited about eating them when we were little.  Well, I made some real tiny pizzas in my muffin-top pan today and decided that would be a perfect name for these tasty  pizza bites.  I used my new Mozzy Dough, which held up nicely for eating with fingers.  They made a great lunch and they would make great party appetizers!   These delicious little gems are not suitable until you get fairly well into Phase 2 Atkins, as there is a little wheat product in Carbquik bake mix (in the dough).

Many more delicious low-carb recipes can be at your fingertips with your very own cookbooks from LOW CARBING AMONG FRIENDS, Volume 8, by Jennifer Eloff, Chef George Stella of Food Network fame, and myself.  Volume 8 is almost completely comprised of my recipes!

INGREDIENTS:

½ recipe my Mozzy Dough

¼ c. Classico Spaghetti Sauce (Tomato & Basil) or other low-carb sauce

1/4 tsp. dried oregano leaves, crushed

12 slices pepperoni

12 black olives, sliced into 3 slices each

1 oz. green bell pepper, sliced into 12 thin pieces

½ c. shredded mozzarella cheese

3 T. shredded Parmesan

DIRECTIONS:  Preheat oven to 350º.  Make the Mozzy Dough per that recipe’s instructions.   Divide in half and wrap/store half for some other use.  Divide the half you are using into 12 equal balls (that’s about 1½ T. each ball of dough).  I used a non-stick muffin-top pan, but you could alternately use the bottom of non-stick muffin pan slots or a parchment-lined baking sheet if you don’t own a muffin-top pan.  Place a ball of dough into each of the 12 pan slots and press flat into a 2½” circle.  Top each with 1 tsp. of spaghetti sauce.  Sprinkle on the oregano.  Next place a slice of pepperoni on top of each Pizza.  Then place 3 slices of olive on each, followed by 3 pieces of bell pepper.  Finally, top each pizza with 1-2 tsp. mozzarella shreds, ending with a sprinkle of the Parmesan shreds.  Pop into 250º oven for 15 minutes or until lightly browning on the edges.  Remove, plate and serve warm.  These can be handled with your fingers, so the youngest kiddoes will love these and be able to eat them without dropping a bit on the floor or their lap.  Of course, they may have never seen a real silver dollar and wonder about the name.  Silver Dollars are rarely seen nowadays.  Perhaps you have one you can show them?
