Pacham Pizza

There is only one rule I follow when making a pizza.  That is "There are no rules when making a pizza."  Perhaps that is the reason why we see pizza in different forms, sizes, shapes, and flavors in the market now.

This recipe is just to show you how I made THIS pizza, and for you to see how easy it is to make it at home.  You may use this as a guideline to make your own pizza, with your own toppings.

1 piece pizza crust (small)
2 tsp tomato sauce
6 slices cheese
onion rings
2 pcs medium tomatoes
1 pc small eggplant

How I made up my pizza:

1.  I evenly spread the tomato sauce on top of the pizza crust.  I used Del Monte Tomato Sauce with MMK (malunggay, monggo, kalabasa).

2.  I arranged the sliced cheeze on the crust.

3.  Onion rings and tomatoes came next, and lastly,

4.  The eggplants.
5.  I placed them in the oven toaster for about 10 to 15 minutes.  I first heated the top for the first 10 minutes to cook the eggplant.  Then with the time left, I used dual heating (top and bottom - my oven toaster has single and dual functions.  I can heat only the top or the bottom or use them both.) 

Now, eating this 2-inch thick pizza is another story. 

Tips (refer to the first picture of this post):
1.  I placed the unused tomato sauce in a jar and placed it in the refrigerator for future use.
2.  If you love cheese, buy a cheese cutter for convenience in cutting the cheese.  Cheese doesn't stick to the cheese cutter like it does on a knife.
3.  I keep the unused crust in the freezer.  A pack of crust contains four pieces.  You can buy them at the supermarket.
4.  I did not grate the cheese.  As I've said, there are no rules in making a pizza.
5.  You may use any toppings you can think of to make your pizza.
6.  I used a simple oven toaster to make this pizza, that's why I sliced the crust into 2.
7.  There is no picture of the finished product because I ruined it. Hahaha.  But more or less, the picture looks much like the last one here.

Till next pacham.
