"Appetizers"- Mini 'biscuit' pizzas/ Veggie Focaccia

At times..I love being a "Semi homemade' type cook. I loveee cooking ...but with 2 little ones on hand...I tell you..it gets tough at times!!
I find myself looking for short cuts and easy to make dishes that taste and look good too! Like Sandra Lee (food network) - use some store bought ready -to- use ingredients and cook in minutes!
Here is one such recipe.....I used store bought buttermilk 'Biscuit' Dough as a base for these mini pizzas or Focaccias.
The possibilities for the toppings can be endless but here are a few ideas-
1)Broccoli,Onion and Cheese

2) Tomatoes and Broccoli-
3) Roasted Chicken(I used store bought Rotisserie chicken),Onions and Green peppers
* For Broccoli-Onion-Cheese topping

1/2 cup chopped broccoli
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup Ketchup
1tsp Italian herbs

1/2tsp chili flakes
2tsp olive oil

1) Place the biscuits on a cookie sheet. Pre heat the oven as directed on the biscuit dough can.
2) Mix the chopped onions,broccoli,herbs,chili flakes,salt and pepper
3) Make a 'well' in the biscuits by pressing fingers in the dough.
4) Spread a tsp of ketchup and place a spoonful of the veggie mixture on top.

5) Bake as directed till golden brown
6) Sprinkle a tsp of Shredded cheese on top.Serve Hot!
