Easy pizzas

Finally, Mrs Eio had the time to try out this online pizza recipe that her friend forwarded to her. It’s really easy to make the dough. There’s no need to knead but the dough has to be prepared 12-16 hours in advance. 

Please refer to the link below for the recipe. http://www.jennycancook.com/recipes/easy-pan-pizza/

Thanks to Jennycancook! 

Mrs Eio prepared her pizza dough at 9pm the night before. She doubled the ingredients so that she could make more pizzas. 

Next day around 1pm, the dough had doubled in size and there’s air bubbles. 

Mrs Eio added a bit of flour & mix the dough. Next, she greased a pan & spread the dough onto the pan. 

Let the dough rest for another 1-2 hours. 

Meanwhile, she prepared the ingredients for the pizza toppings: mushrooms, pork knuckle meat, olives, tomatoes, onion & cheese. 

Mrs Eio mixed 2 tbsp of tomato paste with a teaspoon of mixed herbs & 2 teaspoon of olive oil. Spread this mixture onto the dough. 

Well, Mrs a Eio’s little kitchen helpers are back in action again. Adding the toppings! This is the fun part! Meanwhile, preheat the over to 200 degreeC. 

Wallah! El can’t have cheese so there’s a corner of the pizza left for her. 

Pizzas are done after 15 mins. 

This is the crust. 

The kids loves these pizzas. They enjoyed the preparation too!

Stir fry Sweet potato noodles & Bai Ye toufu. 


It’s the first time Mrs Eio used Bai Ye toufu. Initially, she thought of making cold dish but since there’s beef in her freezer, she decided to stir fry the ingredients for dinner. 

Ingredients (serves 5 pax)

  • Half a packet (250g) Korean sweet potato noodles (boil in water for 8 min & rinsed in cold water, drain water & set aside) 
  • 1 packet Bai Ye toufu (sliced into strips) 
  • 400g Wagyu beef slices (cut into smaller pieces while frozen) 
  • 1 packet of Bean sprout (without head & tail)
  • Chopped 1 Onion & 4-5 cloves of garlic 
  • 3 tbsp Korean BBQ sauce (to marinate the beef) 
  • Olive oil to stir fry onion & garlic 
  • Approx 1 tbsp of Sesame oil 
  • 1 tbsp Fish sauce 
  • Black ground pepper (depends on your liking) 

Optional

  • Bibimbap Chilli paste (added just before serving)
  • Sesame seeds (toppings) 
  • Stir fry with sliced Chilli or mushrooms. 

It’s the first time Mrs Eio used Bai Ye toufu. Didn’t know she had to sliced it on her own. 

After slicing, the toufu still sticks together. So rinse & “mixed & rubbed” the slices together & they’ll “break apart” (resemble noodles). 

Mrs Eio has briefly mentioned how to prepared each ingredients in her ingredient list above. So, after getting all the ingredients ready, it’s time to stir fry them. 

Marinate wagyu beef slices with Korean BBQ sauce. 

Instructions

  1. Drizzle some olive oil to stir fry onion & garlic till slightly brown. 
  2. Stir fry the Bai Ye toufu & beansprout with fish sauce & pepper for about 2-3 min. 
  3. Add in marinated beef. Stir fry till the beef is about half cooked. 
  4. Add in the sweet potato noodles. Mix the ingredients together. Drizzle in the sesame oil. 
  5. At this point, you may add some water  (not too much)if the ingredients are too dry to mix together or sticking to the pot. 
  6. Stir fry till the beef is cooked. 
  7. Serve. 

Topped with sesame & bibimbap Chilli paste. 


The beansprouts added some crunch to the noodles & the baiye toufu gave texture to the sweet potato noodle 🍜 . It should taste good with mushrooms & sliced Chilli but Eio kids might not eat it if it’s too spicy. 

Comforting to know that Eio kids love this version. El finished a big plate of it for dinner…

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
