Make it ourselves…

Last Sunday, my girl said she wanted to make a pizza for Mother’s Day. “But that’s a week away,” I told her. “Next Sunday!” However, her mind was made up and she decided to go ahead with her plan.

She made her own pizza base – the bread dough type even though I know that actually, she likes thin crust. She opted for seafood topping so she used my stock of those giant prawns that I bought and was keeping in the freezer and there was a packet of mussels that had been there for a while now so she took that and used as well. Of course, she added a whole lot of cheese – mozzarella and parmesan and maybe, there was cheddar too along with some pesto that she made and she also added a whole lot of herbs and lastly, a generous sprinkling of chili flakes…

It turned out really great…

…with the variety of flavours from all the ingredients added and the bread crust was good too, soft and nice. There was enough for lunch and dinner so we did not bother to cook anything else that day.

In the meantime, my good friend/ex-classmate, Robert and his wife, Angela, dropped by my house and they gave me this…

…flour-free chiu chu koi (tapioca cake) that the latter made. Oooo…I have a weakness for these nyonya kuehs but right now, I need to watch my sugar intake!

I tried a bit and found that it was not sweet so I was able to nibble one whole slice…

…at one go and save the rest for another time, bit by bit.

Thank you so much, Angela and Robert!

  1. Talking of pizza, it makes me realise that it has been quite a long time since I have one. I like pizza especially the ones with thin crust from Tom’s Pizza, my favourite in town. Melissa’s pizza looks really good. Tapioca cake is also my favourite.

    Tom’s? Any connection with Tom’s in Padungan? We have a few places here where we can order thin crust and take home to eat but my girl wanted to make her own.

    1. Not sure whether is the same as Tom’s in Padungan. I used to get mine from Tom’s at Coffee Talk, Jln. Song.

      Ok. Never heard of it. Would love to try. Only pizzas I had in Kuching was at that Italian restaurant at Merdeka Palace. Not good now, I hear – run by locals…and not receptive to comments, they told me.

  2. Oh wow. A homemade pizza. That was nice. Your missus enjoyed it I bet.

    When is Mother’s Day?? This Sun?? Nothing special, my man is going for his fishing trip this weekend.

    Oh dear!!! You did not remind him? LOL!!!
    My missus was o.k. with it – she only likes what is super spicy so pizzas aren’t exactly something up her alley.

    1. Reminded him this morning. Haha. He just wished me ‘Happy Mother’ s Day’, nothing else. I guess I just need to wait for him to come home with lots of fishes on Sunday afternoon. Lol.

      I also forgot it is this Sunday. Lol.

      Check the belly of the fish he brings home – there may be a diamond ring hidden in one of them. Muahahahahaha!!!!

  3. Wow, Melissa’s version of the pizza is simply fabulous!! Yummy with the generous toppings and cheese! I have yet to make my own pizza dough, mine comes from Jaya Jusco ready-to-go dough, thin and crispy…

    Yes, so many brands now, the pizza base. My friends in New Zealand just use frozen roti prata or canai to make for the kids.Those should be real easy to get here.

  4. The seafood pizza looks so rich and tasty. 😀

    Being a meat person, I would prefer ham or bacon or pepperoni, those kind of things.
