Makes about 30 mini pizzas

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • Pizza dough (enough for one 12-inch pie)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh mozzarella, shredded
  • ½ cup marinara sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup fennel sliced into thin matchsticks
  • ¼ pound prosciutto, torn into pieces
  • ½ cup mixed Greek olives, sliced thin
  • ¼ cup honey
  • Red pepper flakes, to taste
  • Flour, for dusting

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 400°F. Dust your work surface with flour and roll out the pizza dough to 1/8-1/4 inch thick. Cut the dough into 3-inch rounds with a cookie cutter. Knead and re-roll the scraps of dough as needed until it is all cut into the same size rounds.
  2. Arrange the dough rounds on a parchment-lined baking sheet about half an inch apart. Spoon 1 tablespoon marinara onto each round and spread it to the edges. Sprinkle a tablespoon of mozzarella on each, then layer 2-4 slices of fennel, 2-3 pieces of torn prosciutto, and 1-2 olive slices onto each mini pizza.
  3. Bake the pies for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese melts and the dough is crisp. Drizzle all of the pies with a bit of honey and serve hot.
