Some Like it Hot! - Giardiniera Deep Dish Pizzettes

Crunchy, crisp crust on the outside and gooey on the inside!

Perfect for entertaining, this recipe strikes just the right balance balance of heat & pungency, tempered by the richness of the creamy, vodka marinara sauce.

Simmering the Mezzetta Hot Mix and Spanish olives in the vodka marinara sauce first, creates an interesting and unique depth that blossoms as the pickling juices release into the sauce. Layering the pizzettes with mozzarella adds a playful, gooey-stringiness that everyone loves! A mini deep dish, (formed using ramekins,) is the perfect vehicle for these ingredients, as the crust is a thick and sturdy canvas, enough to stand up the heartiness of the Hot Mix Salad. 

These pizzettes are the perfect party-pleaser that serves elegantly, and will pique the curiosity of your guests, and the real measure of success is everyone will want a copy of the recipe!
