  3. Put the mini pizza dough in the oven (Medium High is 375° - 449° F (190° C - 232° C) and bake them until you have a nice crust. In my case this were 6 minutes.

Pizza, pizza

Pizza has a rich history. A friend from Venice told us once a story, that pizza was the servants food during Renaissance. Rich people in Italy ate their meals on a flatbread, so the servants took the rests of their meals and heated up with cheese. What ever the story of pizza is, one thing is for sure – pizza is delicious.
