French-Style Pizza Bites (Pissaladière)


Makes about 24 servings (2 diamonds per serving)


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into strips
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup pitted black olives, cut into thin wedges
1 can (10 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust dough
3/4 cup (3 ounces) finely shredded Swiss or Gruyère cheese


  1. Position oven rack to lowest position. Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease large baking sheet.
  2. Heat oil in medium skillet over medium heat until hot. Add onion, bell pepper and garlic. Cook and stir 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in olives; remove from heat.
  3. Pat dough into 16X12-inch rectangle on prepared baking sheet. Arrange vegetables over dough; sprinkle with cheese. Bake 10 minutes. Loosen crust from baking sheet; slide crust onto oven rack. Bake 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Slide baking sheet back under crust to remove crust from rack. Transfer to cutting board. Cut dough crosswise into eight 1-3/4-inch-wide strips. Cut dough diagonally into ten 2-inch-wide strips, making diamond pieces. Serve immediately.
