Most women I know don't feel like cooking for self. This is true for housewives who either skip lunch or have leftovers for lunch when the family is away during the day. This is also true when the husband is in a profession that requires him to work overnight at times... advertising in my case.
So after several months of my husband's overnight working, I decided to start cooking something interesting for myself instead of having just biscuits or Maggi when he's not around. Now this, I realised, has three benefits:
- It acts as a great feel-good factor, especially when the dish turns out to be delicious.
- You eat well and stay healthier and happier.
- Your husband would be more than tempted to return home asap everyday when you click the pics for him and show him all that he is missing due to overworking.
So here's the easy and fast recipe for making Onion Capsicum Tomato Cheese Pizza on a pan.
Ingredients for 2 medium size pizzas:
Pizza base (2 nos)
3 tsp butter
2 cheese cubes, grated
1 capsicum, medium size, chopped into thin and long pieces
1 onion, medium size, chopped into thin and long pieces
1 small tomato, rings without the pulp
1/2 tsp or a pinch of salt
1 tsp tomato sauce
Melt 1 tsp butter on a tawa (flat pan). Add onion and capsicum and cook for a 3-4 minutes on medium flame. Shift them to one side and place the tomato rings. Turn them in a minute.
Tip: Switch off the gas at this point as the tomato will cook sufficiently on the tawa that is already hot. It savees some fuel as well!
Melt another tsp butter on a tawa (flat pan). Maintain low-medium flame. Place the pizza base (the part that will have the toppings should face down first). Apply butter on the other surface and turn the pizza base.
Apply tomato sauce and some cheese in circular motion, prevent it from spilling out from the edges. As the cheese starts melting, add the veggies.
Remove from heat in a minute or two, decorate with grated cheese and your pizza is ready. Garnish with oregano!
