Shortcut…

We had a nice pizza palour here once, thin crust but it has terminated its business for sometime now. I prefer thin crust as it is more fragrant and you do not get the feeling that you’re eating bread.

Well, I think I saw Pete doing it once, either in his blog or on Facebook…and Melissa’s friend in Wellington also did the same for his son when we were at their house. All they did was to use one of those frozen canai, paratha or chapati that you can get at the supermarket…

…add the toppings and put in the oven to bake…and there you have it! Your own homemade pizza, thin crust…

Well, that was exactly what I did! I took one piece of the chapati

…that we had in the freezer and place it in a pan, pre-greased a bit to prevent sticking.

Then I spread some pasta sauce on top. I had some leftover from what I had cooked the previous day for Melissa when she came home for the weekend…and after that, I sprinkled some grated cheese over it…

Toppings

I think mozarella or cheddar would be nice but I only had parmesan so that would just have to do. Of course you can have your own toppings according to your whims and fancies – maybe you would want to have some bits of ham or bacon, sausage slices, mushrooms – that’s all up to you.

I put that in the oven and once the cheese had melted, it was done…

Ummmm….very nice, very fragrant…and it sure tasted great. Maybe it isn’t anywhere near those at the authentic Italian pizza places but as they say, beggars can’t be choosers! LOL!!!
