Making pizza is much easier than you can imagine, seriously! This recipe is so easy that even kids can do it! For a busy weekday evening, this recipe comes in handy. Use the Gardenia Wholemeal Wrap (below) as the pizza base if you do not have time to make your own pizza crust.

 4 shiitake/button mushroom, thinly sliced
 1/2 tomato, chopped
 1/4 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
 1/4 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced 
 3 Tbsp pasta, salsa or tomato sauce
 1 prepared thin pizza crust (or make your own)
 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese* (use vegan cheese if vegan)
 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese* (use vegan cheese if vegan)
 
Seasoning
 Pinch of red pepper flakes
 Fresh black pepper
 TABASCO® sauce, optional

Method
1. Preheat the oven to 175 or simply use the small toaster oven.

2. Spread sauce on pizza crust and spread evenly half of the mozzarella cheese.

3. Top with mushrooms, tomato, red and yellow bell pepper. Cover with remaining mozzarella cheese, then with parmesan cheese. Season with pepper flakes and black pepper.

4. Bake for about 6-8 minutes in a preheated oven or until cheese melts and pizza turns golden.

Notes
☼ Gardenia Wholemeal Wrap can be used as pizza base too, easily available at most supermarkets. SGD2.50 for 5pcs.

 
☼ When buying cheese, make sure the cheese rennet is vegetarian. Cheese made from vegetable or microbial rennet is vegetarian but not calf rennet. Natural calf rennet is extracted from the inner mucosa of the stomach chamber of slaughtered young, unweaned calves. Read more about rennet.

  1. Hi,

    Can we use microwave oven instead? If yes, how long does it takes?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Sharon, you can use microwave but I am not sure about the timing. You can refer to your microwave instruction manual for the guideline or when you see the cheese bubbling, it is ready. Personally I do not use microwave coz of the radiation. Do read up more about the harmful effects of microwave. Here is one good link:
