Pizza Bread | ~ inspired by Kitchen Boss ~

One afternoon far in my distant memory, I had the pleasure of having the lounge to myself….so I thoroughly enjoyed lazing on the couch watching one of my favourite channels, TLC…hehehe what can I say, I love TLC and The Food Network and and and….

And Buddy Valastro of Cake Boss fame on his home cooking show, Kitchen Boss, made the most delicious-looking quick and easy pizza bread! So I tried his version with my own little tweaks….the notable differences between my recipe and his are that he uses whole canned tomatoes which he mashes down, I just use chopped tomatoes in a tin, and he add Romano cheese which I didn’t have….and of course, every indian girl who loves her spice adds her own flavourings because I didn’t want it just seasoned with s&p.

This is a one bowl wonder to get it all ready….so here goes.

Get a few ciabatta rolls and slice them horizontally, plus one gluten-free roll for me and drizzle with olive oil 🙂

1 can chopped tomatoes

1 handful chopped fresh basil

3-4 cloves garlic – crushed

salt

pepper

2 tsp chopped green chilli

1/4 tsp origanum/oregano

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Provolone or Mozarella slices to top the bread before baking

Combine the above well except for the Provolone/Mozarella.

You can also get a helper (my little niece) to do the stirring for you…

Arrange the bread onto an oven tray, facing up. Drizzle with olive oil and then smear generously with tomato mixture.

Top with provolone and/or mozarella slices. I made a mistake and got the processed mozarella slices by mistake instead of the proper cheese slices (I’m not a fan of the processed slices….blegh) but anyway……waste not, want not!

Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

I like my cheese darkkkkkk and crispy…hehehe but you can pull it out whenever you like.

My brother says he would’ve preferred it with some meat……and I reckon this can easily be made with a steak/chicken filling if need be. Some men just don’t understand meat-free Mondays…hmmmpph!
