Hi!

I know life can be busy and sometime when we are just hungry. We come home tired and stressed and we just want to stuff something in our mouth and go to bed. We don’t want to start making some strange cauliflower pizza or pasta made out of zucchini. We just want pizza. or toast.

Which is why I present to you pizza toast. It’s like a sad version of pizza that you kind of have to imagine you are having a deliciously gooey margherita pizza when you are not but it is also like a fancy awesome version of toast. But hey, it’s better than eating cereal..right? Jokes haha I love fruit loops with the parrot on the box 🙂

This style of open faced toast is quite popular Japan, Hong Kong and Malaysia as well as many parts of Asia. Bread is quite popular in Japan, China etc however the type of bread consumed is different to European bakeries. Asian bread is softer, fluffier and whiter. For example, their generic white bread is square shaped-as opposed to rectangular shaped-and as fluffy as a cloud. In addition, the crust is lest distinct.

From my perspective, traditional Chinese citizens prefer white flour, white rice over whole wheat flour, brown rice etc. Like for some odd reason, my relatives avoid brown rice and crusty hard sourdough like the plague…

Anyway, what I am trying to say is Chinese people enjoy white bread because it suits their taste.

So please give this Pizza Toast idea a try and I hope you consume it in solitary confinement of your own room.IMG_2797.JPG


Pizza Toast

 

First up:

Ham+Pickle+Mayo+Cheese+Mustard+Black pepper

I use vegan ham, vegan cheese, free range egg mayonaise, bread and butter pickles, french dijon mustard and freshly ground black pepper. You see I am lactose and egg intolerant and don’t eat meat. However.. I do eat mayonaise and butter. Yeah you can judge me whatever but I’ve just got to do what works.

Mix some mayo with a slug of mustard and spread it on your asian white bread. Add a slice of vegan ham or ham, grate some vegan cheese or cheese and put two pickles on top, one slightly overlapping the other. Grind some black pepper on top and paint the naked edges of the bread with melted butter. Grill your bread under a hot oven grill for 2-3 minutes until the edges are crispy and golden brown.

Canned spaghetti+Cheese

If you’re from NZ you probably already know this.

Open your canned spaghetti (Watties) and spread it on your bread. Grate some vegan cheese or cheese on top. Brush the edges of your toast with butter. Grill your bread under a hot oven grill for 2-3 minutes until the edges are crispy and golden brown.

‘Maghertia’

Spread some pizza sauce on toast. Add some grated vegan cheese or cheese on top. Top with a halved cherry tomato and brush the edges of the toast with olive oil. Grill your bread under a hot oven grill for 2-3 minutes until the edges are crispy and golden brown.

Only three! Yeah I know sorry you are probably disappointed because you binge on buzzfeed and pinterest where you can see twenty toppings for avocado toast. Sadly this is not how things work here.

So yeah, bye.
