Homemade Pizza Using Perfect Italiano Cheese

March school holiday is going on this week so we have more rest and relax time to enjoy our breakfast and afternoon tea. And upon request from my kid, we have assorted pizza in different base such as "Thin or Thick Crust" using Pita Pocket, Wrap and normal sandwich bread.

And with a decent packet of Pizza or Mozzarella Cheese, you could also turn homemade pizza into something similar like restaurant serving which impressed your family or friends. Below we have 3 quick pizza ideas (with recipes) which I hope you would find it useful as a quick meal idea.


HAM AND TOMATO PIZZA
(using wholemeal wrap and Perfect Italiano Grated Mozzarella)


If you love "Thin Crust" pizza, I am sure you would love this! Just pick up any flavour / brand of wrap, despite whether it is plain, wholemeal or etc. Most important tip is to pre-bake the wrap for a minute or two (on both side) to get it slightly crisp before spreading the sauce and add on the toppings. In this way the base will remain crispy instead of soggy after baked and makes it an addictive finger food.


(Serves: 2  | Preparation: 5 minutes | Cooking: 5 minutes)

Ingredients:
  • 1 Piece of Wholemeal Wrap
  • 30g Of Shaved Ham, roughly tear
  • 100g Perfect Italiano Mozzarella Grated
  • 2 Broccoli Florets, cut into smaller pieces
  • Some Cherry Tomato, halved
  • 1 - 2 Tablespoons of Tomato Base Pasta Sauce
  • Garnish with dried parsley, chilli flakes, grated Parmesan cheese

Method:-
1. Lightly baked the wrap on both side for about 2 - 3 minutes in an toaster oven (or pop it into a preheated 180 Degree Celsius oven) till slightly crisp.

2. Remove, spread a thin layer of tomato pasta sauce on the wrap. Top it with half the amount of the Mozzarella cheese.

3. Arrange shaved ham, broccoli and tomato on it then follow by another layer of Mozzarella cheese.

4. Pop the prepared pizza back into the toaster oven (or normal oven) and bake for another 5 minutes or till cheese melted and turn slightly golden brown in colour.

5. To serve, top with some garnishing of your choice and enjoy it while hot.



HAM AND MUSHROOM PIZZA TOAST
(using wholemeal bread and Perfect Italiano Grated Mozzarella)


For a quick breakfast idea, grab any type of sandwich bread you have at home. Spread it with some tomato base pasta sauce (or with any tomato or BBQ sauce that you have), add some Mozzarella cheese plus your favourite toppings (or anything you can find in your fridge) to create a delicious pizza toast like what we have done.  This recipe is very easy and it can be done within 5 - 10 minutes using whatever ingredients on hand to create a delicious pizza treat at anytime of the day.


(Serves: 2 | Preparation: 5 minutes | Cooking: 5 minutes)

Ingredients:
2 Slices of Wholemeal Bread
30g Of Shaved Ham, roughly tear
100g Perfect Italiano Mozzarella Grated
1 - 2 Brown Button Mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 - 2 Tablespoons of Tomato Base Pasta Sauce
Garnish with dried parsley, chilli flakes, grated Parmesan cheese

Method:-
1. Lightly toast the wholemeal bread on both side for about 1 - 2 minutes in an toaster oven (or pop it into a preheated 180 Degree Celsius oven) till slightly crisp.

2. Remove, spread a thin layer of tomato pasta sauce then top it evenly with half the amount of the Mozzarella cheese.

3. Arrange shaved ham and mushroom on it then follow by another layer of Mozzarella cheese.

4. Pop the prepared pizza back into the toaster oven (or normal oven) and bake for another 3 minutes or till cheese melted and turn slightly golden brown in colour.

5. To serve, top with some garnishing of your choice and enjoy it while hot.

ASSORTED PIZZA
(using pita pocket and Perfect Italiano Pizza Plus)


For a more satisfying treat that close to a "Thick Crust" pizza, you could get a packet of Pita Pocket which is available in the supermarket (bread section) that comes in either small or medium rounds. With that you could enjoy a mini pizza party for your family movie night using your favourite toppings like Hawaiian, Tuna, Seafood and etc.


(Serves: 4 | Preparation: 5 minutes | Cooking: 10 minutes)

Ingredients:
  • 4 Wholemeal Small Pita Pocket
  • 250g Perfect Italiano Pizza Plus Cheese
  • 1 Hardboiled Egg, halved
  • Some Tuna Mayo
  • 4 Fresh Prawns, Halved
  • Some Fresh Basil Leaves, thinly shredded
  • Some Cherry Tomato, halved
  • Some Ham And Capsicum, sliced
  • Some Fresh Pineapple, cubed
  • Some Tomato Base Pasta Sauce
  • Garnish with dried parsley, chilli flakes, grated Parmesan cheese

Method:-
1.Lightly toast the pita pocket on both side for about 1 - 2 minutes in an toaster oven (or pop it into a preheated 180 Degree Celsius oven) till slightly crisp.

2. Remove, spread a thin layer of tomato pasta sauce then top it evenly with half the amount of the Pizza Plus cheese.

3. Top with your desire ingredients and follow the similar steps base on the recipes shown above.


Lastly I hope with these 3 quick pizza recipes it would somehow or rather inspired you to prepare more homecook food for the family which I believe it is not as difficult as what you think. Just start with something simple, like the Pizza Toast which requires only normal sandwich bread, cheese and ham.  I am sure you could do, remember to share your pizza photos with us over at our facebook page (HERE). Hope to see yours soon :)
