I’m not normally a big pizza fan, and nor are the family, but we have tried making Pizza at home and our opinion and liking of pizza is slowly rising.
This Recipezaar recipe is one of our homemade efforts and was a hit, especially with Kiwidutch Daughter. (Anyone with fussy children will totally understand how many brownie points a recipe earns when this happens !)
She helped make the Pizza’s as well… Little brother Master Four tried hard to help but got side-tracked into stuffing himself with salami instead, ah well, good intentions little man… LOL.
I had on hand: a very small amount of portuguese chorizo sausage, large rounds of salami and 2 cooked rookworsts ( = large smoked sausages, similar-ish (but better) to frankfurters), the pizza bases came from Ecoplaza (totally organic grocery) it’s the first time I tried these and they taste great!
Little Miss smeared the tomato sauce onto the bases, and put the meat onto one while I did the other, and she got busy adding the cheese, more like a blizzard of the stuff then a dusting, but oh well, that’s kids in the kitchen for you.
We also added a little green pepper and these cooked up in no time. This recipe gets plus points for using leftover meats successfully, WITH organic bases successfully, for letting daughter loose in the kitchen and having fun AND getting her to happily enjoy eating the end result.
For me it was simple to make and the 2 pizzas did us great for a weekday meal in a bit of a rush.
This is recipe that is open to many variations of leftover meats as you like, leftover diced roast chicken, those last slices of ham in the packet that need using up, salami, of the sausages left over from the weekend BBQ that you put in the fridge and are now looking lonely. An excellent recipe to reduce needless food waste, and it tastes brilliant too ! Thanks Mandy!
