Nothing beats a loaf of warm, homemade bread. These rolls deliver on that pleasure with a recipe that includes strong flour, brewer's yeast and lard. Featuring a crisp exterior and pillowy interior, they're especially tasty when warm. Feel free to double the batch and freeze some of the baked rools for another day. Depending on size, they can be served as dinner rolls or used for sandwiches. Since the starter needs to sit overnight, plan accordingly.


  • 500 grams flour
  • 250 grams water
  • 25 grams yeast (brewer’s)
  • 40 grams butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • tomato (pulp, drained and chopped)
  • mozzarella (Chopped)
  • oil
  • oregano


  1. Place the flour on a work surface, make a well in the center and add the crumbled yeast.
  2. Dilute with water and mix with some flour.
  3. Add the salt, oil, sugar, and butter.
  4. Combine the ingredients, incorporating the flour, but do not over- knead the dough.
  5. Shape the dough into a ball, cover it and let it rise for 40 to 50 minutes.
  6. Without kneading the dough, roll it out to a sheet approximately 3 millimeters in thickness.
  7. With a cookie cutter, approximately 5 centimeters wide, cut disks out of the dough and place them on a baking sheet.
  8. Gather the leftover pieces of dough, knead it together, roll it out, cut out the disks and place them on the baking sheet.
  9. With the tips of your fingers, press the center of the disk to hold the toppings.
  10. Add the tomato pulp and a pinch of salt to the center of the disk.
  11. Bake at 200C for 5 minutes.
  12. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and add some chopped and drained mozzarella, a pinch of oregano, and a drizzling of oil to the center of the mini-pizzas.
  13. Return the baking sheets to the oven for an additional 4 to 5 minutes. The mini-pizzas can also be made in a square shape, eliminating the problem of having leftover scraps of dough.
  14. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and serve hot.

These dainty mini pizzas were out of this world. I loved how straightforward the recipe was; along with the explosion of tastefulness primed with every bite. The crust on these were not to hard and not to soft; absolutely perfect. My kids and I will be making these 5 star mini pizzas soon and I will let my kids customize them their own way.
