Pizza time!

Thursday nights, my parents would go to play badminton while me and my brother would go to Sunday school (because in the gulf weekends were Thursdays and Fridays). Post which came the fun part, dad would leave money on the buffet counter. So we were to do as we please after we came home from church. As always our routine was to dial 2465-05-0. We never argued on what we wanted to order, because either of us was okay with the choices we made that day as long as it took only 45 minutes for the pizza to get delivered home and the pizza was hot ; thank god for the invention of the microwave and yes mum owned one; because we'd still run a 30sec on our pizza even if it was still delivered hot just to get that cheese cheesy enough. A Pizza hut pizza was something we never got tired off and still don't.....

Chicken Pizza

Chicken shredded - 1 cup
Pizza Sauce - 4 tbs
Grated low fat cheddar cheese - 1/2 cup
Thinly sliced onion - 1/4 cup
Corn kernels - 1/4 cup
Coriander leaves - 1 tbs
Whole wheat tortilla/ khubbus/ pizza base - 2

Pizza Sauce:
Onion - 1 minced
Garlic - 3 pods, minced
Tomato puree - 200ml
Sugar - 1/2tsp
Oregano - 1tbs
Vegetable oil- 1tbs

To make the sauce:
Heat oil and saute the onion and garlic till they turn light brown. Add the tomato puree and rest of the ingredients. Blend in a mixer and let it cool.

For the pizza:
Preheat the oven to about 200 C if or else heat the bottom of the pizza base onto a tava/ skillet over medium flame for about 2-3  mins just so that it turns a nice brownish hue. The same goes for the khubbus.
Toss the chicken with 2 tbs of pizza sauce. Spread the remaining sauce over the pizza base. Spread the chicken, corn, onion and sprinkle the grated cheese.
Bake the pizza for about 20mins. For those not using the oven microwave the pizza for about 3mins till the cheese is bubbly and warmed through. Sprinkle chopped coriander and dig in!!

Mushroom and Bell Pepper Pizza

Mushroom - 1 cup thinly sliced
Yellow bell pepper - 1 cut into thin rounds
Balsamic Vinegar - 1tbs
Garlic - 3 pods grated
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Tomato Paste - 1 tsp
Mozzarella cheese to sprinkle

Saute the mushrooms till they turn soft. Add the sugar let it caramelize the mushrooms, then add the balsamic vinegar. Mix the mushrooms well in the vinegar and then add the tomato paste and saute for another 2-3 mins. Spread pizza sauce over the pizza base and then spoon the mushroom mixture over the pizza base. and top with the yellow pepper rings. Lastly sprinkle cheese and bake for about 20 mins or microwave for about 2-3 mins until the cheese melts. And lastly...enjoy your creation with a glass of iced coke and a good movie to watch. How about that?
