Quick Bit for a Quick Bite

I dug this up out of the old Flaherty recipes (like from 10 years ago) and had these tonight for dinner. They make a fun, somewhat healthy snack, especially for kids. They take a few minutes to stand there and brown them up, but  with just three grocery store snags and when topped with your favorite pizza topping, they make a much better option than the pre-made pizza pockets, although you may need to use a fork to avoid greasy, saucy fingers.

By the way, these make a great gluten-free alternative to the regular pizza.


  1. Cut 1 log pre-made polenta into 1/4 inch slices. Heat a couple tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat and fry polenta until browned on both sides. You may have to add a little oil here and there, but try not to go overboard because the polenta will suck it right up. As polenta finishes, set them out on a baking sheet (or better yet, a pizza stone).
  2. Top each polenta circle with a smear of pizza sauce (you won’t need more than 8 ounces). Sprinkle with 4-5 ounces grated mozzarella cheese. Add any other usual pizza toppings you would like (veggies and meat already cooked).
  3. Bake at 500F for 5-10 minutes, until top is browned and pizzas are crisp. Serve hot, with a fork.
