Perfect Peppered Personal Pizza

I have shared a ton of pizza recipes that are oh-so-perfect for family meal night. But sometimes when you’re all alone, you get the craving for a delicious slice of this yummy concoction, but you don’t necessarily want to make a huge pie you’ll end up not being able to eat. OR – sometimes you really want a special kind of pizza, but no one else likes the toppings you choose. I had this problem in my pregnancies – I craved spicy, flavorful pizzas that no one else wanted. So this serves as my reminder to all of you that there are a million options for a personal pizza.

Simply grab yourself a pre-prepared mini pizza crust and load it up with whatever you fancy! In fact, you can even let each member of the family create their OWN pizzas, so this can STILL be a great family meal!

Here’s my own special concoction.

This reminds me vaguely of a Philly Cheese Steak, but the tomatoes take it to a new level. I love the combinations of flavors within, as it lends itself to a gourmet meal without having to leave your house!

Sometimes I’ll even skip out on the pizza crust and use an Indian Nan bread or even a Pita bread instead!

And while I’m a HUGE fan of cheese usually, this particular pizza is delicious with only a small sprinkling. The other flavors are so good that you don’t need to go too heavy on the cheese!

All in all, it’s a fab little recipe any time you need it.
