Pizza Bites Appetizer, Banana Nutella Dessert - Pics

TjcoleyTjcoley Posts: 3,489
Started out with store bought pizza dough (Wegman's), out of the fridge a few hours before cooking and let it rise.
image

Pull off a chunk and flatten it out.  Place pizza filling (pepperoni here) and cheese (String Cheese slice) in the middle.
image

Pull up the sides to form a ball, about 1 1/2 inches diameter.

image

You can use sausage or the topping of your choice.
image

Place in a pan, brush with EVOO, sprinkle with garlic, oregano and parmesan cheese.  
image

Bake raised indirect about 20 minutes.

image

Took the @Cen_Tex challenge from the 'Newbies Ask For Advice" thread and went sans temp probe (I managed to stay out of that one).  Looking for about 450.
image

A little sauce for dipping, and overall a good appetizer.  I need to play with it a bit.  Seemed to be missing something.  Crust was crispy outside, soft and chewy inside, but the crispy outside made it seem a little dry.  Also could use some salt.
image

Converted from indirect to direct and threw on some quick burgers
.image

Had dough left over, so decided to try dessert.  Same technique, but used a dollop of Nutella and a slice of banana. 
  image

Brushed with melted butter, sprinkled with Turbinado sugar, same time/temp, then brushed with more melted butter and sprinkled with powdered sugar.

image

The dessert was a definite winner.
image

After the cook, put in the probe - 475

    TJ, those look great!  Looking at your post, I kept thinking these would be great for the the egg demo cook I'm doing in June.  Big plus is to have an appetizer and a desert without changing set-ups or temp.  You're making my menu decision for the egg demo cook in June more difficult!  DON'T STOP!

    (edit) Almost forgot, Bookmarked!

    Fred,  I think these could be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated/frozen making it even easier for a demo/fest.  From one batch of dough, I could have done another pan of either.

    Wonderful idea. Looks like they are simple, make ahead-able, and really easy to get good results. I've got a couple balls of frozen dough in the freezer. Altho I had planned on waiting for the pizza steel to use them, I think 1 is going to be used as soon as defrosted.
