Polenta Pizzette Appetizer Recipe



A great appetizer or quick pizza. Polenta is a staple in Italy. If really has a great taste when fried or baked. These are baked just like pizza. You can make your own rounds or buy them in any specialty Italian section of the supermarket. We really like these with fresh ingredients using freshly pureed plum tomatoes. See the recipe suggestions below for toppings. We are lucky to have a produce place here and I bought 8 lbs of fresh plum tomatoes at 88 cents a pound can you believe that? Shocking great price!


These are made with fresh tomato sauce and topped with shredded whole milk mozzarella


Sprinkled with oregano freshly dried from our garden along with freshly chopped basil.
