I have been neglecting blogging with work. Now that I have completed almost five years at my workplace, I am one of the senior staff who are consulted in various decision making. While it is an honor, sometimes it does become taxing and stressful. Hence, I prefer to relax and play some Candy Crush when I come home. On a side note, as I write this, I am stuck at 678th level, where have you reached in this simple yet strategic game?
I bought some new cookbooks from Karachi International Book Fair 2014. These books are really pretty and most of the stuff can be easily made, or adapted slightly (like omitting the alcohol factor or changing the non halal meat to halal meat options for Muslims).
I made this Spanish pizza from the book named “Tapas”. Tapas are Spanish finger food. These bite sized delicacies can be served before lunch or as an evening snack. Or they can be an accompaniment with gossip in a gathering with friends. Spanish food overlaps with the Mediterranean cuisine because of the similarity of flavors.
This version of pizza is not heavy, as it does not have any cheese. I did not make many small round pizzas. I did one plate, but since it was for my family, I made one large rectangular pizza and then cut it into slices. It is alright to do so when making it only for family.
When I will be making making these for guests, I would make individual small pizzas, the reason being the sauce makes the center part of a large pizza soggy in a little while, on the other hand, small pizzas do not become soggy. This pizza is rolled thinner than the traditional pizza, which makes it slightly crisp, preventing the sogginess.
