Mini Polenta Pizzas

I love polenta and I love pizza so I figured I would combine the two and see what happened. The result was magical. Like, Neil Patrick Harris and The Magic Castle magical.
Great to serve as an appetizer or pair it with a large side of sauteed greens for a delicious meal!

What you will need:
1 package polenta
Olive Oil (try an infused oil for more flavor!)
1 jar tomato sauce
Daiya Mozzarella Cheese Shreds
Italian Seasoning
Ground Pepper

1. Line a cookie sheet with foil and preheat oven to 400°. Slice polenta into 1/8-1/4" rounds and place in a single layer on the sheet.

2. Drizzle olive oil on each piece and cook in the oven for about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and switch it over to broil.

3. Spoon tomato sauce onto each round, follow with a sprinkle of Daiya and then spices to taste.

4. Place under the broiler and cook for about 5 minutes or until Daiya is melty and bubbling. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a minute before eating.


  1. Hmmm...I have some instant polenta in my kitchen right now. I've just been adding a scoop or so of it to soup to thicken it up...but this is a better idea!!

  2. I love polenta and pizza, too, so I MUST try this! It looks delicious.

  3. The real NPH magic would be if it appeared in my kitchen at dinner time without me cooking it...
    Do you home deliver ? ;-)

    1. I will home deliver for the small fee of wine and good company :)

  4. These sound amazing! Now I need to find ready made polenta somewhere around here...
