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

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

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!

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