Mini Mexican Pizzas - Instructions

Dough instructions:
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Mix all the ingredients together. Knead for 5 minutes.
Put dough in lightly oiled bowl and cover. Let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
Divide dough into 4 pieces and place in oiled pans. Spread dough with fingers around
bottom and part way up sides of pan. If dough tears, just pinch together. Bake in
preheated 425 F oven about 8 minutes. Remove from oven.

Spread about 2 tablespoons salsa on each crust. Spread cheese over salsa. Sprinkle
chilies and onions over cheese, then sprinkle on cilantro, basil and crushed red
pepper - according to taste. Bake in 425 F oven around 15 to 17 minutes. If using a
gas oven, place rack on the floor of the oven. If using an electric oven, place rack
on the second rung from the bottom.
