Summer delights – Stuffed Pizza bites

It’s still ramadan here in UAE and during this holy month most of the restaurants and coffee shops served food until after 7 pm. Although most hotels will still serve food as normal during the day,but will be discreetly screened off from the view of the general public.

Normally when it’s ramadan we are not allowed to drink or eat in public during the hours of fasting. This includes while you are driving as well as in public places,such as shopping malls. While non – Muslims are not requires to fast, we are still obliged to follow the rule to enforce the cultural sensitivity. To be caught eating,drinking or smoking in public usually results in a verbal warning,but do careful.Many short jail sentences have been handed out in the past to those abusing the law. Generally speaking,the police are lenient,they are strongly encouraged us to show consideration for those who are observing this holy month.

Of course,behind closed doors we can eat and drink. There’s nothing like a lazy afternoon at summertime than munching the freshly baked pizza bites.

Tips:

  • Instead of using the usual pizza dough, I used the dough which I always used for Cinnamon rolls. And that’s make the crust really soft..
  • I used Belcubes cheese and there’s variety of flavors. Pepper,Tomato Pasta, Cheddar and Plain. You can get it from any supermarket.

Easy Peasy Pizza Bites:

You will need:

1 roll store bought refrigerated pizza dough (or try making your own)
2 T Parmesan cheese
1 T olive oil or melted butter
1/2 t dried oregano
Belcubes cheese or Mozarella cheese
Pizza toppings of your choice: ie, ham and pineapple, pepperoni slices, sausage, etc.

Directions:

Cut the dough into squares depending how small you like it.

When all of your dough squares have cheese and toppings on them, carefully lift up each square and wrap the dough around the toppings.  Pinch to make sure each ball is sealed shut and then place them seam side down in a lightly sprayed pie pan (or similar sized dish).

Brush the tops of the dough balls with olive oil or melted butter (I’ve used butter ) and then sprinkle with the dried Oregano  and top with Parmesan cheese.

Always accept little help from your little man

Cook them in the oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown on top.  Keep an eye  on them! Doughs vary, so I’d check them after even 10 minutes.

Serve warm with honey dipped mustard sauce on the side for dipping or eat as it is.
