Quick and Easy Mini Pizzas


No time or too lazy to make pizza dough? Want some activity for the kids on the kitchen? Then try this quick and easy pizza recipe that will surely make the kids excited to make. This is a simple pizza recipe where you don’t have to make the dough and the sauce. This is a kid friendly recipe, meaning the kids will eat the toppings for sure! But if you want to add other toppings like mushrooms, onions or bell peppers then feel free to do so. There’s also a bigger frozen pizza dough that you can buy, it’s around 12 inch round dough. Next time I’ll try that one. For the meantime, here’s the recipe…

Quick and Easy Mini Pizza Ingredients:
8 mini frozen pizza dough (bought from Robinson’s Supermarket)
1 pouch tomato sauce(Del Monte)

1 pouch Del Monte pineapple tidbits
sliced sweet ham
shredded mozarella cheese
shredded parmesan cheese

1. Preheat oven to 400’F
2. Put pizza dough on prepared baking pans then add just enough tomato sauce on each dough.
3. Top with the cheeses then the toppings. It depends on you what to put on each dough and how much of each toppings. The kids put a generous amount of cheese on the dough that’s why it overflowed after baking...haha
4. Bake for 12-15 minutes
5. Cut the pizza into wedges and serve immediately.

2 ½ cups cake flour
1 tbs baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ cup granulated sugar
- Mix everything together and set aside

8 egg yolks
½ cup oil
½ cup water
½ cup sweetened orange juice(I used Del Monte)
- Add them to the dry ingredients. Mix well then set aside This will be your batter mixture

Meringue Mixture
8 egg whites
1 tsp cream of tartar
½ cup sugar(add gradually when your egg whites+cream of tartar become frothy)

Yema Frosting (adapted from Aikko’s Bake Happy blog)
2 cans condensed milk
6 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs butter
300 ml water
1 tbs cornstarch
1 cup grated cheese

Prepare the frosting by opening 2 cans of condensed milk and pour it over a pan. Add the cornstarch to the prepared water and mix till there were no more lamps. Add it to the condensed milk followed by the egg yolks, mix well and cook in low heat. Add in vanilla. Cook until it thickens and juggly enough to spread. Add in butter. Cool for a while to thicken it more.

Pour Yema Frosting over cooled cupcakes and top with grated cheese.

Banana Cupcakes with Chocolate Chips

I missed making banana bread that's why I asked Nora to buy me some bananas so I could make banana cupcakes this time. I added some chocolate chips so kids will want to eat it. I did not used my recipe for banana bread, instead I adapted this recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction's Banana Cupcakes. This one's so moist and flavorful..loved it! I yielded about 28 cupcakes, 2 oz each and I did not made frosting coz the cupcakes are really enough, but if you want to add frosting then do so, I haven't tried this recipe's frosting but I bet it tastes good :)


Mozarella Basil Bread

Had some leftover mozarella cheese and I searched for an easy recipe to make use of it. Good thing I found this easy recipe at AllRecipes.com Mozarella Basil Bread that has basil as an added ingredient. I just reduced the amount of basil coz the kids are not too crazy with herbs on a loaf of bread. I halved the recipe to make a 9x5 single loaf of bread. I loved it! So cheesy and chewy! Delicious when you add butter while it’s hot…yummy!
