I don’t have a conventional oven.  I want some pizzas.  I don’t really like the pizzas I could find outside.  So I think I’ll do it myself.  Here I combine two cookeries, one is a frying pan and the other one is a toaster oven, the two things I have nicely and conveniently at home.  The ingredients are simple, since I’m kinda lazy to make a complicated one and it was sort of an experiment since I have never done it this way before.  First time it didn’t turn out right.  This time it was nice!

Ingredients

For the crust:
1 1/2 c all purpose flour
1 c water
1/2 c olive oil
salt

For the sauce:
13 cherry tomatoes
1 tsp salt

Instructions

Make the sauce first to allow it to sit and blend with salt nicely.

11. Roast the tomatoes in a sauce pot under medium heat till skins are breaking open.
2.  Blend tomatoes and salt in a blender (or food processor) till juicy like.

— Set aside —

 

 

To make the crust and pizza:

21. In a mixing bowl, first place flour in the bowl, pour water slowly into the flour and mix with a spoon or a scraper.  Mix it well.
2. Add oil, blend well into the batter.
3. Sprinkle some salt, do it twice.  Then keep mixing.
4. Use a fork to press and break down all the flour that’s stick together. Do that till the batter is very smooth.

5. Heat up 1 tbs olive oil in a frying pan under high heat, reduce heat to medium when oil is hot.
6. Use a large serving spoon, spoon out one scoop of batter, place on hot pan under medium heat (like making pancake).  Heat it for 2 1/2 – 3 minutes each side or until either side is crusty and brown.

7. Place on a plate and spread tomato sauce on the crust, top with cheese.
8. Send to toaster oven.  Toast for 3 or 4 minutes or until cheese is melted and slightly brown. (If you don’t like it brown, just melt it is fine.)

9. Ready to serve.  For this one, I sprinkled with some cayan pepper and black pepper.  For my other slice, I did just plain cheese.
