Smoked Mini Pizza Snacks & Balls

  1. Here is a quick snack that I make at least every other week & when making them today I figured I would put it up here in case anyone wanted to try it out...

    Start out by making dough for a pizza crust. I didn't take pics of that because everybody knows how to make dough  [​IMG]   You can cheat & use a packet mix if you don't wanna make it from scratch or here is the recipe I use if you need one...

    1 cup flour

    1/4 tsp salt

    1/4 tsp instant yeast

    4 tsp olive oil

    3 oz warm water

    Once you make your dough divide it in half & divide each half into thirds so that you have 6 pieces of dough. Take 3 pieces & form small circles with them. Slice a fresh tomato & make your circles slightly bigger than them.


    I put a nice slice of tomato, some mozz cheese & some of my dried herb mix on.


    I then put 4 pepperonis & a couple more pieces of mozz on.


    Make circles with your other 3 pieces of dough. Put a piece of mozz on each one.

    NOW THIS IS WHERE THINGS DIFFERED FROM MY USUAL METHOD

    I usually put my homemade sauce on these 3 but did not want to open a fresh jar just for these 3 so I elected to put a piece of tomato on each one instead. I then put a pepperoni, another piece of mozz & a bit of my herb mix on.


    Now fold them up just like you were making a dumpling.


    & into the MES 30 running hickory pellets in the AMNPS

    Smoker temp 297*   I've done these enough to know that they will stay in for exactly one hour. If running a different temp just do a toothpick test to tell when they are done.


    Snack ball after 1 hour & awaiting its turn to be eaten.


    These are a quick snack if you are in a rush for something smoked - they really are pretty good  [​IMG]

    Note :  The mini pizza snacks were good as usual but this was the 1st time I used tomato in place of my sauce for the balls & they ended up being too dry. Either more tomato was needed or just skip that & use sauce instead like I normally do - probably the latter...

    Anyway... There you go...

    My 13yr old daughter made us dinner the other night and did the same thing but in the middle put in Chili Mac, turned out really good - not smoked she just had them in oven, put a little velveta in with it - I will say I was impressed and she did it all on her own. [​IMG]
     
  13. Nice! That does sound like it would be pretty decent too  [​IMG]
