Pinky winks or mini pizzas

Donald Bellinger


I got this recipe from a dear family friend who made them for parties or snacks while watching movies or playing cards. She shared the recipe and it is one of our family's favorite snack/appetizer. They are easy to make and can be stored uncooked or cooked in a sealed freezer bag for quite a while and can be cooked or reheated whenever required for unexpected guests or quick snacks at any time. I think they are really tasty.
