Bread Pizza

Honestly everyone, cooking is one thing, the other is how many hours are you willing to slog in your kitchen. Trust me, for many of us, I reckon we don't own the most conducive kitchen. Whereas others may have the privilege to a more spacious and a state of art kitchen. But all in all, whether you want to agree with me or not, we all sweat profusely while cooking, let alone cleaning up after cooking. Not something I suppose we enjoy? Yet, cooking must go on because compared to eating out which by the far is becoming a norm or lucky them who have maids to cook, home food, even if its a simply put together just one single dish (Malaysian Chilli SausageMushroom Omelette, Beetroot Raita, Kerabu Taugeh/Beansprout Salad & Tomato Vegetable Soup), is still the best. Additionally, we should learn to cook within our budget instead of blindly spending and hoarding ingredients. Take this Bread Pizza as an example. I told myself I might as well save the bread slices. So, what did my thinking tell me in return? How about using my discretion in converting them into bread pizza (Chicken Sambal Sandwich, Egg Mayonnaise Sandwich, Bread Sardine RollCheesy Bread Roll & Banana Bread)?

Anything goes. Literally any kind of ingredients for the toppings, of course if we speak about pizza, we need cheese, for this my version, indeed cost effective, I opted for a can of tuna (Fried Tuna Cutlet, Grilled Tuna Burger & Tuna Stir Fried), alternatively sardine should be okay (Sardine Varuval/Dry Style), whereas kaduk/Thai betel leaves came from my garden and always available in my kitchen are red onion and red chili. Don't you agree this bread pizza definitely is an easier option instead of making or buying the pizza dough?   

4 to 6 bread slices
I small can tuna in oil
Some daun kaduk/betel leaves (or any other veggies/herbs) - slice thinly
1 large red onion - slice thinly
1 red chilli - slice thinly (for kid friendly version, omit)
Grated cheese - as needed
Salt and pepper - as needed
Add all ingredients in a bowl (include oil from tuna)
Toss and mix together.
Spread tuna mixture on each bread slice.
Bake at 180c for approximately 15 minutes or so.
(Note - you can grill over the portable grill).
Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle cheese over, or prior sprinkle before baking.

  2. I totally agree with u abt social media n ppl posting abt things which look so fake.. i wonder if my life is miserable or they r lying which seems the case as nobody wants to show the not so good part of their life.. I dont add relatives to my facebook account lately as i dont want ppl to know what i am upto nor I am interested in their life...
    Bread pizza anyday everyday.. I seeing the recipe for the first time.. Easy and simple to make will try.. Thx fr sharing

  3. media can be quite annoying these days.
    Great use of leftover sandwich, Nava, and they look really delicious and comforting.

  4. You r so too kind of fed up...yet world is beautiful n life is good... Loved this tuna laced bread recipe... tinned tuna is used at my home too for sandwich filling...u can use tuna in water instead of oil

  5. Well said. I perfectly agree with you Nava. There are so many people who are pretentious. I ll try your version with Mushrooms. I don t own an oven.. Any ideas as to how I can achieve on stove top? I mean the baked effect? Do share tips.

  10. The combination sounds so lovely! But I'm most fascinated by the addition of betel leaves. Good thing you removed certain people from your list. Keep on doing what you enjoy.:)

  11. Gosh, I'm drooling! Love those colours too, Nava! xoxo

  12. I can totally relate to the social media thing and I have realized that the more we live our lives on our terms, people and mostly relatives have problem with our life. Nonetheless, the best response we can give is live how we want and let them gossip their heart out.. I have gone through some torture regarding the way I dress and post pics on social media and I haven't cared less about anything else. I love how we foodies always find peace and consolation in kitchen.
    BTW,the sandwiches look mouthwatering Nava.
