Little Tuscan Pizzas

Little Tuscan pizzas, also known as schiacciate, are little individual,rustic-style pizzas with crusts rolled as thin as you can possibly get them.  This was an amazing pizza break-through for us. . .I had never before baked a pizza in quite this way and we absolutely loved it!  This would be a great pizza to make with your family or a group of friends because everyone can get involved and make their own pizza according to their own personal taste . . . and have a blast doing it!

Mediterranean Pizza

This is one of my FAVORITE pizzas, one I have made many times.  We prepared two pizzas that evening, one Mediterranean and one plain cheese for the younger, pickier set.  This was the first time I had made two pizzas at once, and I wasn't completely happy with the way it turned out.  It took much longer to bake with two pizzas in the oven, and it seemed the edges of the pizza were about to burn while the bottom of the crust never really crisped up the way I like.  I did switch the positions of the pizzas half way through the baking time which helped them bake at the same rate; I think next time I will bump the oven temperature up to 425 degrees and see if that gives better results.  If anyone has any other ideas, I sure am open to suggestions!
