Happy Weekend + {cooking for one #2}

Friday, January 18, 2013

I am seriously won't change this blog to be a food blog nor I am becoming expert in cooking. It just recently my hubby has many trip to overseas and sometime over the weekend he is still away. I do not really like eat out alone in the weekend, I normally prefer to stay at home, relaxing, baking and also cooking. So I started to look for 'cooking for one' recipe that aren't so much wastage.

The quick dinner that I make is normally a pizza with various topping, however I try to stay away from the unhealthy ingredients. I love basil, tomato and mushroom. If I ever become a vegan, those three ingredient will be always inside my fridge :).

When I am alone, pizza is just too heavy for me, so I substitute with puff pastry, and one roll is just nice for one dinner, no wastage. Actually there isn't any fixed recipe for the topping, you just can put anything whatever you have inside the fridge :). I have few slices of left over French ham so I put together with my healthy toppings haaa....
The result was slightly burned, because I am still learning how to use my oven to bake a puff pastry, however the burns turned out to be crispy and nicely caramelize the tomato paste. So I have no complaint.

Here is the result that I took with my phone and posted on Instagram. I hope you enjoy the recipe too.
