Individual Pizza Pies

Individual Pizza Pies

1 1/2 c mix of white and wheat flour or natural white wheat flour
1 tbsp cornstarch
garlic powder
italian seasoning + any other herbs you'd like
pinch salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tsp white win vinegar
1-2 tbsp. cold water

Spaghetti/Pizza Sauce
Mozzarella cheese
Blend of cheddar and monterey jack cheese (Optional)
Red chili flakes (very few)
Cooked sausage + any other pizza topping ingredients you like (optional)

Makes 6-8 pies

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Combine flours, cornstarch, salt, garlic powder, italian seasoning, and herbs. Add butter and blend (pastry cutter, two knives or hands). Add vinegar. Add water, 1 tbsp. at a time, gently mixing. Form ball.

Roll dough out.
option a: Cut edges to get straight lines. Cut lengthwise, forming two long rectangles. Cut vertically to form individual rectangles or squares. (You should have about 10 identical rectangles, the top row will be the tops and the bottom row will have the filling placed on it).
option b: cut into circles, forming ones as shown in the picture.

Spoon filling ingredients in centers of half of the squares (use other halves as tops). For circles: in the center of one half of the circle. Fold over to make a half circle, crimp with fork.

Place Pizza Pies on a baking sheet with parchment paper, and bake for 7-8 minutes.
