[recipes] 5 Fuss-Free Homemade Pizza Using Perfect Italiano Pizza Plus

Fuss-Free Homemade Pizza using Perfect Italiano Pizza Plus
Have you ever tried making pizza at home where you could add in your favourite toppings like more cheese, ham, mushroom and etc. Or you just prefer to pick up the phone and dial for a home delivery to save the hassle on preparing the necessary ingredients or time spent in the kitchen.

For our family, we prefer to make our own pizza at home because we love to work on the dough as well as the ingredients. Furthermore homemade pizza smells fantastic when they are baking in the oven and we after which we get to eat hot and fresh pizza with oozing cheese when compare to those home delivered pizza.

Pocket Friendly Lunches in Singapore CBD Area

Pocket Friendly Lunch Deal
In recent years with the high raising living cost in Singapore, most of the food outlets had increase their food pricing in order to accommodate the overheads and expenses. So at time we do wonder are there still any pocket friendly meals to cater for those working in the Central District area such as Raffles, Marina area or etc. For example: Can you still grab a decent lunch for S$5.00 or you are willing to increase your budget with a few dollars higher and set them in air-conditioned food court, cafe or restaurants?

In this post, let's look at a few budget friendly food centres in the central district area such as the newly revamped Lau Pa Sat, Hong Lim Food Centre and Chinatown Market which I am sure they sounds familiar to those who often patrons these places.

Our Favourite Singapore Local Food

As a Singaporean like many others out there who loves food we are also willing to travel from North to South or East to West just to enjoy our favourite hawker dishes. And despite the heat and smoky environment from its non-air conditional environment we are happy to soak ourselves in the aroma of chicken rice, char kway teow, BBQ chicken wings and etc that floats in the air.
