Embrace your inner Ninja Turtle...

Hey, long time no see!

Welcome back for the next installment of Student Eats.

Today we are covering a very important topic. Its time to make that awesome thing called pizza.

Chicken and pineapple

450g Self Raising Flour
90ml of olive oil
180ml warm water
1 tsp salt
Tomato puree
Mixed herbs
All purpose seasoning (optional for meat topping e.g. chicken)
Topping of choice

1) Season and cook meat topping of choice e.g. chicken
2) Put flour and salt into a bowl, gradually mix in the oil and water until you have a dough ball
3) Kneed and roll out on a surface
4) Put the dough on a pizza/oven tray. Dont be scared to make a non pizza like shape, I molded the dough over a rectangle oven tray
5) Cover dough with tomato puree, a spinkle of mixed herbs, loads of grated cheese and the toppings of choice
6) Shove it in an oven on 200°C until cheese is melted (if you used a meat topping make sure it is cooked)

There you have it. Experiment with different toppings and let me know how it goes. So far I've tried chicken and pineapple, as well as ham and pineapple which is my favourite.

In addition...

Hey folks,

This is just a quick post to add to my last entry about soup. Due to excessive ingredients (potato and leek) I tried a little experiment. Can you see where I'm going with this yet? I'll give you a little bit more time.....

That's right, its all about potato and leek soup!

250g potato
250g of leek
Ingredients in the soup checklist, minus the carrot and coriander.

Follow the same method and prepare for yummy-ness

Now if you enjoy slightly chunky soup, when you smoosh it leave pieces of potato.
It goes great with bread and butter

Hope your enjoying the awesomeness of home made soup.
