These are great for adult get togethers or for your kids' parties. I make 2 versions: vegetarian and meat. Try the ingredients I list here or use ingredients you have on hand. Let the kids get involved in picking out their own ingredients. Always keep a dough ball or 2 on hand in your freezer for a last minute get together with friends!

For the Dough You'll Need: 1 dough ball (quartered), 1/2 cup flour (for rolling out dough). For Veggie Version you'll need: 4 Tbsp light cilantro dressing, 2 cups fresh spinach, 4 Tbsp sundried tomatoes, 1/8 cup pine nuts, 4 Tbsp fresh basil (cut in confetti strips), 1 cup low fat 2% mozzarella cheese, pinch black pepper  For Meat Version you'll need: 4 Tbsp butternut squash pasta sauce, 4 Tbsp turkey bacon (pre-cooked, thinly sliced), 4 ounces low fat chicken sausage (pre-cooked, thinly sliced), 4 Tbsp fresh basil (cut in confetti strips), 1 cup low fat 2% mozzarella cheese, pinch black pepper  To prepare: Roll out each of the 4 sections of dough into a very thin layer (8x11 or so), sprinkling flour on the work surface, rolling pin and dough as needed to avoid sticking. Transfer each thin crust to a non stick, small cookie sheet (4 small cookie sheets should fit in the oven at once). For the veggie versions, divide the toppings in half and evenly layer the ingredients onto 2 of the crusts. For the meat versions, divide the toppings in half and evenly layer the ingredients onto the other 2 crusts. Place cookie sheets in 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Cheese should melt and crust should be lightly browned! Enjoy! Note, if you only want veggie versions, double the amount of the veggie toppings and do all 4 pizza as veggie versions (note, same goes for the meat version).
