“Good things come in small packages’

This is one quote I have never fully agreed all my life,because I am a tall girl ๐Ÿ™‚ ย But looks like now I can’t agree more. Well…there are exceptions to every rule ๐Ÿ™‚ These mini pizza pies which just made way out of my oven are so irresistibly delicious. They smell incredibly good,are crunchy,scrumptious,juicy and melt in the mouth…all at the same time.The pies are made from scratch and baked in the oven for about 10-15 minutes. They are then filled with a delicious pizza filling and Italian seasonings,covered loosely with layers of filo pastry and baked again. The result is a crunchy top,juicy center and a firm yet melt in the mouth base. They are excellent finger food or hors d’oeuvres for a party. The best part is the individual portion size. you don’t have to take the troubleย of slicing through a pie and serving it individually. the cup cake wrappers in which you place them ensures that your guests’ fingers stay clean. So, on the whole this is a complete win-win dish for big parties. You can make the filling and bake the pie shells in advance and just do the final baking before your guests arrive.

    1. Cooking for me is mostly about aromas and flavors. And I go weak in the knees whenever there is a gorgeous bread baking in the oven. There is a bakery kitchen close to the place where i live and you can just imagine the aromas wafting out at different times. You can tell when the cookies are baking , when the breads and when the cakes are. Its just beautiful.

  1. Now how did I miss this one? Love recipes like these, the smaller portions and the presentation, they would go really fast at a cocktail party I’m sure. Thanks for the link on the uses of tumeric too. I’ve read more and more about its benefits, definitely useful information to bookmark.

    1. They were a hit at the potluck party we had at my inlaws’ family home. And I am a big fan of turmeric too. It is a staple in our kitchen for its medicinal values. Thank you for your kind comments Loretta.
