Light Meal Breads: Sausage, Tomato and Cheese Bread

Sometimes large portion of food can be a nightmare, especially when you will have a big dinner (or you already have a big breakfast, haha). This bread can be an answer. I got the recipe from ............... You can see inside of the book, ............. And I must say I fall in love with her books, even they don't contain many recipes (most of them base on the basic recipes), but many of her ideas are great.
I love this kind of bread as you can see that you can use any filling that you like, it looks like a small pizza. The only down side is due to the softness of the bread, this bread can't be kept for too long or the base of the bread will become damp. But I won't believe that these bread will last long as the size is so small, you can eat two pieces without feeling heavy (believe me ^ ^").
You can make this bread and put in your lunch box, and have a light and tasty meal.

Sausage, Tomato and Cheese Bread
Makes 10

200 g
Bread Flour
3 g
Instant dried yeast
20 g
3 g
20 g
Unsalted butter (soft)
140 g
whole milk

Tomatoes (cut into small dice)

Mayonnaise and Ketchup

Mozzarella cheese, shredded

Put the flour, the sugar and yeast in a bowl, whisk to combine, add and salt whisk again. Pour the milk into the bowl.

Use large spoon (or pastry scraper) to mix everything together, and knead briefly to bring all the ingredients together.

Take the dough out of the bowl and knead, you will see the dough will be elastic after about 2 minutes.

Add the butter and knead by using the heel of your hands to compress and push the dough away from you, then fold it back over itself. Give the dough a little turn and repeat. Put the weight of your body into the motion and get into a rhythm. Keep folding over and compressing the dough. Knead for 10-15 minutes or until the dough is soft, pliable, smooth and slightly shiny, almost satiny.

Or you can also try stretching part of the dough, if it can stretch into a thin sheet without breaking, you've kneaded enough.

Put the dough into a light buttered bowl. Let the dough rise in a warm place until double in size (can be 1 hour or 1 hour and a half check often depend on the temperature).
Take the dough out of the bowl, deflate by touch it lightly.

Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Butter 10 small tart pans (9 cm.).
Divide the dough into 10 pieces , rest for 10 minutes.
Roll the dough into circle 12 cm., and place the dough into the tart pans.
Use your finger to press the dough until the dough is up to the rim of the pan (without shrinking back).

Brush the base of the dough with the ketchup, put the sausage on top and sprinkle with cheese.
Place the diced tomatoes, sprinkle again with cheese.
Squeezes the mayonnaise over the bread.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the breads are golden brown.
