5-minute Meal For Real!
Updated: Sep 8, 2018
The little one came back home today screaming hungry, as he does every day.
As he went to the snack cabinet and started stuffing chips and candies into his mouth, I realized it was time to use my oven magic, and whip up some real food FAST!
If your children are like those in my house, you'd kill for a FAST way to make home-made pizzas, wouldn't you!
Did I hear "take-out"? Well the time it takes you to order and wait for the delivery is easily 30 minutes! That means a bag of chips plus two lollipops and who-knows-what-kind-of junk food that does nothing but to kill your growing children's appetite.
Someone mumbled "frozen pizza"? Well you see, the problem is I happen to have none in my freezer today.
Even if I did, this new method still beats the frozen pizza!
Because it takes only 5 minutes! Not ten, five! Give me you paw...
So, here it goes!
Very important ingredients:
Naan, or Pita bread
(optional) Pizza or pasta Sauce
Very key steps:
Assemble the pizza any way you like, eg., we usually brush the bread with some olive oil, then tomato sauce, and layer on top: Cheddar cheese, and Parmesan cheese (some soft cheese plus some hard cheese).
Turn the oven on to "BROIL", NOT "BAKE"! This is important, because it doesn't take time to pre-heat the oven, so it cooks fast!
Put the pizza in a pizza pan (not pizza stone, as there is no pre-heating), broil for 5 minutes. Adjust the time based on your oven, and how under/well cooked you want your pizza.
The older kid came home and said: this is a flat bread!
Pizza, flat bread...whatever...just eat!
Very critical to remember:
IT'S HOT! YUMMY, AND HOT!
MORE IMPORTANTLY, IT TASTE AS GOOD AFTER COOLING DOWN.
