by Ahmed Zainal

A childhood favorite of mine! It's basically half pizza half open faced grilled sandwich.


  • 2 Can crushed tomato
  • 2 Tablespoons Tomato paste
  • 1 Cup Oregano
  • 2 Tablespoons Basel
  • 1 Tablespoon Bay leaf
  • 6 Garlic cloves (minced finely chopped)
  • ½ White Onion
  • 0.20 kilograms Mushroom
  • 1 Green bell pepper
  • 0.10 kilograms Black olives sliced
  • 0.15 kilograms Pepperoni
  • 0.40 kilograms Mozzarella cheese
  • 0.40 kilograms Sharp cheddar cheese
  • 35 Slices of white bread
  • 1 Pinch Salt
  • 2 Pinches Cracked black pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Sugar
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    As a child, I grew up believing if I ever had the choice, I would live on only pizza forever.

    Step 2

    If the ninja turtles did it, so could I! You can tell I'm a 90s child 😉

    Step 3

    So often in middle class homes where both parents work, a quick fix had to be used. Remove the process of making the bread and you save a considerable amount of time! On to the recipe...

    Step 4

    Chop up the veggies and toppings. The onion and the garlic are for the sauce, the rest are toppings. Add or substitute your favorite toppings as you wish.

    Step 5

    The sauce recipe is inspired by Chef John's recipe from Add the olive oil on a medium heat and fry the onions.

    Step 6

    When the onions are translucent, lower the heat to low and add the bay leaf.

    Step 7

    Stir and add the garlic.

    Step 8

    Once the aroma of the garlic is released, add the Basel and oregano. Yes the amount of oregano is correct! You need LOTS!

    Step 9

    Stir then add chili flakes. I usually make it quite spicy but I'm feeding kids today too.

    Step 10

    Stir and add tomato paste...

    Step 11

    ... And the crushed tomatoes.

    Step 12

    Stir and bring the heat up to medium.

    Step 13

    Add the salt, black pepper and sugar. The sugar is meant to help counter the acidity in the tomato. Let it simmer for 20 mins on a low heat once the sauce reaches boiling point.

    Step 14

    Cut the crusts off the bread. You can leave them on of you want.

    Step 15

    Lay out the bread on the baking pan.

    Step 16

    For every 2 slices of bread use one tablespoon of sauce. Do not add too much sauce to each piece!

    Step 17

    Put a small dollop on the middle...

    Step 18

    ... Then spread with the bottom of the spoon. Try not to be as messy as me.

    Step 19


    Step 20

    Add your favorite toppings.

    Step 21

    Add the cheese.

    Step 22

    Cook in a preheated 180 deg cel oven for 25-30 mins. The cheese will be nice and melted and the bottom of the bread toasted.

    Step 23

    Enjoy while hot, but don't burn yourself!

    Step 24

    Kids approve!
