Polenta Pizza Bites

After school, my girls are super-hungry, so I steer them toward a savory snack. These polenta mini-pizzas are a treat that I feel great[ about giving them. And, I can tailor them according to their tastes (and what I happen to have in the pantry)!]

Total Time:
10 min
Prep:
5 min
Cook:
5 min

Yield:
8 mini-pizzas
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • Eight 1/2-inch-thick slices of prepared polenta (sold in tubes)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup low-fat jarred marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Other toppings if desired (chopped veggies, chicken sausage, ham cubes)
Directions
  • Preheat the broiler to high. Brush the polenta with the olive oil on both sides and place the disks on a broiler pan covered with foil. Broil until the tops begin to turn golden, about 1 minute (watch closely as broiler heat varies).

  • Flip the polenta disks over and spread about 1 tablespoon of the marinara sauce on each one, then top with cheese and other toppings (if using). Broil until the cheese is golden and bubbly, about 1 more minute. Let cool a few minutes and serve.
