These mini pizzas can be assembled and frozen ahead of time, so all you need to do is take them out of the freezer and cook on baking trays from frozen. You could cut rounds from a 30cm ready-made pizza base for a more authentic pizza. Any leftover bread bag up and pop into the freezer to use later for breadcrumbs.

Instructions
These mini pizzas can be assembled and frozen ahead of time, so all you need to do is take them out of the freezer and cook on baking trays from frozen.
Preheat the grill and brown the slices of bread on just one side. Cut into small circles using a 4.5cm pastry cutter.
Preheat the oven to 200C (400F) mark 6 and place the rounds onto a baking tray.
Get your chosen toppings ready and pull out any leftover cheese or meats from the fridge. Spoon a small teaspoon of pizza topping or sauce onto each round; arrange your chosen topping over the sauce.
Bake in the oven for about 5 minutes or until the pizzas are heated through and the cheese is golden brown, serve hot.
To freeze ahead:Complete the recipe up to the end of step 3. Freeze on a flat tray, then gather up and store in an airtight container. Freeze for up to 3 months. To use; Place on baking sheets and cook from frozen for 10 minutes at 200 C (400F) mark 6.
