Mini Polenta Pizzas

These little pizzas are a favorite at our house. They are fun for the kids and really quick and easy to make. In addition, it is gluten-free and low-fat. Polenta is a perfect alternative for carb filled pizza crust. You can use homemade polenta or cheat a little and use pre-made. Either way this is an easy, filling and delicious recipe!

1 roll of polenta (or homemade cut into small slices)
¼ cup balsamic vinaigrette
½ cup mushrooms, diced
1 cup fresh spinach
1 tbsp olive oil
¼ tsp minced garlic
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp black pepper
2 small tomatoes, sliced thin
Shredded cheese

  • In a large skillet, sauté mushrooms, spinach and garlic in olive oil until slightly tender. 
  • On a large greased cookie sheet, place thin slices of polenta (about ¼ in thick). 
  • Using a pastry brush, spread on balsamic vinaigrette over polenta slices. 
  • Top each slice with a little of the mushroom/spinach mixture. Then top each slice with a tomato slice and sprinkle with cheese. 
  • Bake at 375°F for about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. I got one roll of polenta to make about 15 pizza slices.
