Week 3 ,Day 1
Theme:Cooking for One
It is rarely that I cook for one. Normally it is for the complete family, else with different tastes I cook different dishes, but cooking for one person is rather rare. This pizza on a bun is something that I actually cooked for myself.
We were on a holiday to Spain and we visited Tenerife , a beautiful island. Since we were staying in a villa we had a kitchen to ourselves, which was very well equipped. We were there for five days and I was cooking all meals, but all the meals were for both my hubby and me. There were two meals which were solely for me. Well let me tell you about this. We had to check out on the last day and I had a bun, some onions, tomatoes,tomato purée, two cheese slices, some olives in the frig. Along with this I had some left over rice , which was enough for just one person. So the deal was that I make a quick Tawa Pulao for my hubby with the left over rice and use the rest of stuff for my pizza bun. I used every bit that was in the frig, except for those three tomatoes which were a good display for this post .
I cooked the puree with some onions and spread on the buns. A cheese slice on top , a nice big basil leaf and olive, grilled it for a couple of minutes and voila my meal was done. The combo to any kind of pizza is a coke..well since I was emptying the frig this came on the table as well.
In my tomorrows post I shall tell you about the second sole meal I cooked for myself in Tenerife , for now here is the recipe to this delicious pizza.
