Make Monday


Last night I thought I made a pretty bad ass pizza. I was having cravings for it and I didn’t have enough money to go and buy one. Usually at this end of the pay fortnight I am skint and the cupboards are super empty so the spinach which was looking a little bit sad had to do. I usually buy enough food to last us a fortnight so we don’t have to worry about anything but I’m still learning to balance it out better. Improvising is key when you want to stop spending all your money on takeaways!

I made the dough from this recipe which was extremely easy to make and made enough for four mini pizzas or two oblong shaped pizzas (I don’t have a pizza tray) The best thing about pizza is you can go as simple or as nuts as you want and today I kept it hella simple. Chicken, almonds, spinach, and the most deliciously simply tomato sauce.

1 c almonds
1 chicken breast sliced lengthwise and 1 cm thick
1 tsp mixed herbs
1 tsp cajun seasoning
1 c parmesan
salt and pepper
5 tomatoes roughly chopped
1/2 onion thinly sliced
1 large clove of garlic

Roll out your dough till it is about even all the way around. Prick with a fork and put in the oven in bursts of 5 minutes on high to get it cooking so you wont have raw dough. Chop your onions and garlic nice and fine and chuck in the pan once your desired fat has melted. Let it get semi translucent then chuck the tomatoes in and stir until the juice starts to evaporate. While the sauce is cooking away mix the herbs, cajun seasoning, and salt and pepper and evenly disperse all over the chicken. Remove sauce from pan and add chicken. Meanwhile, blitz the almonds till they are in fairly decent size bits and set aside. Once your pizza base it brown and doesn’t feel too doughy cover with all ingredients and bake until cooked.
