Maybe I am a cheapskate; for things or food I know I can make myself. Like pizza. I know it’s just some flour and yeasts, and whatever toppings you like, veggies like bell peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and pineapples. I like some ham and pepperonis in there too. Or maybe I’m just way too much of a control freak, even with my pizza.
The idea to use baguette is something I got from Delifrance. I love their pizzas in half baguette. (Ooh, I also love their Chicken Mushroom Linguine which is something I’m trying to replicate at home with no success.) Unfortunately, Delifrance has closed down already as far as I know. I’m not sure since when since I’m not in the Philippines most of the time but I am sure missing them. So again, in my oven toaster food series, I made my semi-homemade pizza using baguette.
Green bell peppers (capsicum), Chicken Hotdogs, thinly sliced tomatoes and cheese.. It be happier if I have some pineapples in there too. 🙂
My improvised pizza sauce; a mix of tomato sauce, tomato ketchup, salt, ground black pepper, and finely chopped shallots.
I just bought ready to eat baguette. Cut them in half then cut again lengthwise. Here I add the “pizza sauce”.
After I assembled all the ingredients.
Then after 8-9 minutes in the oven toaster, here it is. Looks yummy right?!
Well it is yummy! Crunchy and yet chewy “crust” and just the toppings I want in my pizza! It definitely tastes close to Delifrance’s and not from some dental supplies shop hehehehhe…….
Ooh the satisfaction I get doing this kind of things… 🙂
