For the topping


Making the dough

  • Melt the butter with the milk in the microwave for 1 minute at low power
  • Let them cool down before you add the egg otherwise the egg will cook
  • Add one egg
  • Mix until all the wet ingredients are combined
  • Mix the two flours
  • Add the salt and the sugar
  • Stir with a fork
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the bread machine bucket
  • Add the dry ingredients
  • Put the dry yeast
  • Place the basket in the bread machine with the cycle "Dough". The dough will be ready in 1.5 hours

Shaping the pizzette

  • Place the dough on a well-floured surface
  • Cut the dough into 40 pieces
  • Make 40 little balls
  • Open the dough press, place a sheet of parchment paper on the bottom disc of the dough press, and dust with flour
  • Place a well-floured dough ball in the center
  • Cover with another sheet of parchment paper
  • Close the press and press the dough
  • Remove the pizzetta round and start again
  • Until all the balls are pressed

Baking the pizzette

  • Place the pizzette dough on a baking pan covered with parchment paper
  • Pour half spoon of tomato sauce on each pizzetta and sprinkle some salt
  • Spread the tomato sauce around the pizzette with the back of a spoon
  • Add some chopped basil
  • Bake in a hot oven at 355 F - 180 C for 20 minutes
  • Top with half of mozzarella bites while they are still warm
  • They can be served warm or at room temperature



  • If you don't have a microwave you can melt it over a regular stove.
  • Before you add the egg into the mix, make sure they are at room temperature otherwise the egg will cook in the hot milk
  • If you don't have a bread machine you can check the article: how to make dough without the bread machine
  • If you don't have a dough press you can shape the rounds by rolling the dough and using a cookie cutter or a glass to cut the round shapes.
  • You will probably have to bake the pizzette in batches as they will not all fit at once into a large baking pan
