Pizza not Piazza

Ham, Cheese and Mushrooms pizza

Been quite busy these few weeks with the Swedish lessons being stepped up a notch and going away for a short holiday in Rome, it is truly a land of history and grand artifacts, with pasta and pizza around every corner you turn.

Is the pizza better? I don't really know for sure, besides encountering on the first day at this snack pizza place toppings such as mushrooms and egg plants, I think I still prefer toppings I can decide.

We made this a while back, for we are kinda of sick of pizza now, but I think home-made pizza, besides being easy and cheap, allows you to decide the exact kind of topping you want. For me, that's the most important thing of all.

We tried this out using a pizza kit, but you can basically get a pizza base mix which you just add water and voila!

The toppings for my pizza came from Su Lynn's favourite combination from Rocky's pizza in Singapore. You really should be a fan of anchovies to try this.

Minced Beef with Anchovies, Onions, Ham, Mushroom, Cheese and chili flakes


Pizza dough - this is from Jamie Oliver, but if you find it easier to buy the pre-mix or ready dough, don't be shy to use it.
Pizza sauce - again from Jamie Oliver, but my quick cheat is using salsa sauce that comes in a bottle, especially those spicy one ;)
Mozzarella cheese
Minced Beef fried with onions and seasoned with salt and pepper
Anchovies, mashed
Chili flakes
Sliced ham

  1. Roll out the prepared dough, spread on the pizza sauce and top with your choice of toppings. This blog has some good pictures of the steps to prepare the dough. For the minced beef version, spread on top of the pizza sauce beef, anchovies, sliced ham and some jalapeno. After you have spread out the cheese over it, scatter the chili flakes over it.
  2. Bake for about 15-20 minutes at 180-200 degrees.
