Polenta Pizzas

It's polenta time again!! This is a fun appetizer and interesting take on pizza.  Using a polenta 'crust' you are able to customize and top with whatever pizza toppings you like!  I chose to use marinara, mushrooms, onions and cheeeese.  This conbo of flavors is sure to impress your guests!

Servings: 6
Size: 2 Pizzas
Points Plus: 4pp
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Rating: 4 - Very Good

Ingredient List:
1 tube polenta
1 cup marinara sauce (I love Trader Joes brand!)
1 cup raw mushrooms, chopped
1/2 cup raw onion, chopped
1/2 cup reduced fat shredded Parmesan cheese
Dried basil
Cooking spray

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut polenta into 12 even round slices.  Place plenta rounds on top of sprayed cookie sheet.  Bake 20 minutes.  Meanwhile, spray a sautee pan and cook onions for about 2 minutes.  Add mushrooms and sautee another 3 minutes.  When polenta has baked for 20 minutes remove it from the oven and evenly distribute marinara, veggie mixture then cheese on each one.  Tip with a quick shake of dried basil. Place little pizzas back into oven and bake for 10 more minutes.  Place on a pretty tray and serve hot!

Tip: 
Another great variation to try would be small caprase pizzas!  Use marinara, mozzarella and fresh basil for a delish summertime appetizer!
