Clam & Garlic Mini Pizzas

This mini pizza makes a great appetizer cut into the traditional wedges.  It also makes a great luncheon main course topped with an Arugula Salad (Arugual tossed with lemon juice, olive oil, salt & pepper).  Yummy and so pretty! xo

2 T Olive Oil
4 Garlic Cloves, Minced
2 t Red Pepper flakes
1 Can Baby Clams with Juice
1 C Sauvignon Blanc Wine
1 C Italian Parsley, roughly chopped & divided
1/2 t Salt
1/2 t Pepper
Juice & Zest of 1 Lemon
1 Pkg Middle Eastern Flat Bread Rounds, available at Trader Joe's
2 C Shredded Cheddar & Jack Cheese, or Mozzarella

In a medium saucepan over medium heat place olive oil, garlic & red pepper flakes, saute for 2-3 minutes.  Add baby clams and juice, wine, 1/2 cup Italian parsley & the juice of one lemon. Taste for salt & pepper.  Turn the heat up to med-high and let reduce until there is no liquid left, about 10-15 minutes.  Assemble pizzas by spreading 1/3 cup of shredded cheese on each flat bread round, top with reduced clam mixture, top with reserved italian parsley.  Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Top with lemon zest.  Cut and serve as appetizer or top with Arugula salad as a main!  Enjoy
