Polenta Mini Pizzas

8 ounces prepared polenta (in a chub or tube)
6 tablespoons pasta sauce
6 tablespoons low-fat ricotta cheese
6 teaspoons fresh grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 leaves fresh basil
pepper, to taste


Preheat broiler. Heat olive oil on griddle or in frying pan on medium/medium high. Slice polenta into six 1/2 inch rounds. Fry polenta according to package directions. If there are no directions for frying, fry 5 minutes per side. Remove from griddle/pan, and place on a baking sheet. Prepare each slice like you would a pizza, layering 1 tablespoon pasta sauce, a basil leaf, 1 tablespoon ricotta, then 1 teaspoon parmesan. Broil 2-4 minutes until lightly browned. Note: Be careful when removing from the oven, especially if you're using a flat baking sheet. The polenta likes to slide around! Serve.
