Cute miniature pizzas, ideal for picnics, parties or for little hands.

Ingredients for Pizza Dough
1 1/2 cups
all-purpose/plain flour
1 tsp
1 tsp
1 tsp
instant yeast
3 tbsp
a pinch of
baking powder
warm milk for kneading
(approx. 1/2 to 3/4 cup)

First, prepare the pizza sauce and toppings using these recipes:

Pizza Sauce

Pizza Toppings or Spicy Chicken Topping

Next, prepare the Pizza Dough

Mix all the dry ingredients and the oil, then slowly start adding the warm milk a little at a time. Get it to a soft dough, the softer the better, knead it very well for at least 8 minutes or more if possible.

Dab a touch of oil all over the dough, then cover it and place it somewhere warm. Leave it to rise to double its size, takes about 30 minutes to an hour depending on the weather.

Once risen, punch it down, give it a quick knead and then divide the dough into 6 or 8 equal balls. Roll out each ball and place on your greased baking tray. Again cover the tray and let the bases rise slightly for about 15 minutes.

Now, using the tip of a sharp knife, make small slits here and there all over the base. This helps make sure that the base rises evenly so you won't have awkward looking bubbles all over your pizza!

Apply your pizza sauce, followed by the topping of your choice and then some cheese. Bake at 180 C (in a pre-heated oven) for about 10-15 minutes, or until you see that they are done and the cheese is beautifully melted.

Alternatively, you can bake the bases without any topping for about 8 minutes, just until they are somewhat solid, then lay them out to cool and put them in a freezer bag to freeze until whenever you need to make a quick pizza, whereby all you will need to do is place your half-cooked base, add the toppings and bake! :)




i love cooking and would like to learn more. thank you so much for this website.

Pizza is my favourite!yummy yummy once again its on the table:)

hi fauzia?can i use a stove to cook pizza?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Hi, yes you can.

Dear Fauzia, any tips on how to make pizza in a microwave? Mine usually causes the base to burn.

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Hi! I personally am not a fan of baking using the microwave so cannot be sure on what to suggest there, sorry!

salaam fauzia..can i mix the yeast and sugar in warm water before mixing it into the flour?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, if you are using Instant Yeast there is no need for that. However if you are using Active Dry yeast, then increase the amount by a quarter or half tsp and then proceed with mixing the yeast first in sugar and warm water, let it froth/get activated, then add it to the flour.

salamz Fauzia, i love ur things,i have planned to make mini pizzas today and wanted to ask that is it ok that i make the dough i the morning and bake it in the evening before iftari?........

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, yes that is fine.

i made it,,bt the outcome was nt tht gud..:( wen the baking was complted i turned off the knob bt didnt put the baking try out bcoz i wantd them to keep warm till serving time..wen it cooldown it became like a rubber(the dough) help me plz wht cud b wrong?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Next time take the pizzas out of the oven after baking. Even though the knob was turned off, the oven was still very very hot and the pizza kept on baking in that heat, thus turnin hard. You can always warm them up before serving rather than let them over bake.

Salam Fauzia, just wondering if I can use water instead of milk or maybe use yoghurt.

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, yes you can.

What is the measurement of 1 cup??

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Please refer to this note: Yeast

can i use this recipe for pizza baked without oven? is yeast an essential ingredient for making the dough of pizza?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes yeast is essential for this recipe and yes you can bake these without the oven.

Salaams sis, i've tried few of your recipes and alhamdulillah theyve turned out great.I wanted to know can i can half-bake these mini pizza bases and freeze them and defrost and use them after few days like when i have guests over or something?..Thanks alot for your wonderful recipes and tips.
JazakAllahKhayr. tc

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, thank you! Yes you can do that.

Salams.. can i use bicarbonate of soda instead of baking powder?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, no those two should not be substituted. If you don't have baking powder you can omit it in this recipe.

hi fauzia,please do you have any ingridients that the pizza you will bake next time with peperoni

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Hi, at the moment no pepperoni recipes yet.

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, as mentioned in the recipe, it is INSTANT yeast. That is a type of dry yeast. :)

salams fauzia.
when u indicate instant yeast in your recipes is it fresh yeast from the bakery counter in the supermarket or yeast from a sachet.

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes you can use puree instead of paste.

what is the difference between tomato paste and tomato puree.can you use tomato puree instead of tomato paste.

is all purpose flour maida? also i have another question, i know it's a bit stupid, but could u tell me how exactly did u prepare 'minced' meat for keema

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes it is, and do you mean the recipe for making keema? Minced meat means keema.

thanks for replying... wat i meant was how do get th meat to such a paste like v just cook th meat and then grind it in th mixi to make a paste?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

You can get the mince grinded from the butcher. Please check my Fillings/Toppings folder for recipes.

Salaam Fauzy, thank u so much for the lovely rose pizza recipe my family loved them,

May The Amighty be with u always and bless u


aww is all purpose flour plain flour?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes it is.

My base was very hard and thin and I only managed to get 4 bases out of my dough where did I go wrong :((

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Did you measure out the flour and other ingredients accurately? It would be impossible to get just 4 bases, how big were they??

The most delicious pizza ever!! I am freezing a few bases do I need to defrost them when cooking or can i cook straight from frozen? JazakAllah for yet another mouth watering recipe !!! Xxx

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Thanks for the awesome feedback! Yes you can cook them straight from frozen. I prefer half-baking the bases before freezing, just to get them a bit solid so they hold their shapes properly later on. Do not colour them during baking, just a few minutes until they are solid and can be cooled and stored. :)

For how long we can use Piza sauce aftr used it first time......

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

I store leftover sauce for up to a month frozen in a tight container. :)

mmmh i like it,it's very delicious food big up
