Summer is upon us and I get the urge to use my oven. Sometimes I’m not sure what drives us to want certain things when it is 95 degrees outside. Well at least it was worth it, I made these lovely little pizzas. On my last trip to Trader Joe’s I picked up a tube of Organic Polenta and thought about how I wanted to use it. I love using polenta in dishes, but I usually only use it in the creamy smooth grits type texture. So the tube was a bit of a mystery to me. Pizza snacks jumped out as a fun dish, so I went for it.
The tube is already pre-cooked polenta so it really just needs to be heated up and it is ready to be served.
I sliced the tube into thin pieces and placed them on a baking sheet and topped with pasta sauce and shredded cheese, then sprinkled with dried parsley. This was my test run on using the polenta so I kept it simple so I could taste it and see how I can use it next time as a main meal rather than as a snack or an appetizer.
Look at the little pizza.
Baked on 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Really made a great snack. I guess using the stove was not such a bad idea after all.
Question of the day: What new snacks or appetizers have you made or enjoyed lately?
