Mini polenta pizzas!

A couple nights ago a bunch of us from the house got together to make a nice gluten-free dinner. I decided I would make the all important pre-dinner snacks. Something to munch on while the more intense cooking happens. Polenta is a sort of corn meal you boil in water, like grits. You can get pre-cooked polenta in a tube. This makes it really easy to slice into rounds for little treats. I even found some fancy basil polenta. I slice my rounds about a centimeter thick. Then I baked them at 350 for about 15 minutes. In the meantime I caramelized some sliced red onion, by cooking it in a skillet over medium heat, and adding a little brown sugar. This process takes about 15 minutes, so the little polenta crusts were done and I took them out to cool. I sliced half a large tomato and cut those slices into quarters. I put one quarter tomato slice on each polenta crust and sprinkled on a little salt. Then I added a bit of  my onions. I put the pizzas back in the oven at 400 for about 5 minutes. Then we ate them. Leola and Colin made buffalo shrimp tacos, Zora made a huge salad, and Mary made GF brownie sundaes.
