Make the most of leftover pizza

Left over pizza from last night looks little boring isn’t?

Lets make it a little interesting..  for all you know, you may end up making this dish every time you get pizza home!!

You are just 4 steps away from giving your pizza a new avatar!

Step 1 – Chop some fresh vegetables like broccoli, yellow capsicum, red capsicum, mushrooms and some onions.

Step 2 – Heat some olive oil in a pan and toss the vegetables for 5 minutes on high flame. Sprinkle some pepper.  Sprinkle salt only after turning off the flame and vegetables have cooled down a little otherwise the vegetables will become soggy.  Empty the vegetables onto a serving plate.

Step 3 – Chop the pizza into bite like sizes.

Step 4 – Toss the pizza pieces in the same pan on low flame for 2 minutes. Give it 2 minutes standing time so the bread becomes softer. Spread the pieces over vegetables and the dish is ready!!

This is one of my favourite Sunday breakfast!
Simply yummy, so many flavors in 1 plate!

Ingredients (serves 2)
2 cups broccoli florets
2 cups chopped carrot cut into thin long pieces
1 cup button mushrooms , each cut into 2 halves
1 cup chopped capsicum (big pieces)
1 medium to large size tomato cut into 2 halves
2 American sweet corn cobs
1/4th tsp oregano

For the marinade
2 tsps olive oil
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp mixed herbs( I used dried mixed herbs available in grocery stores)
2 tsp Barbeque sauce
1/2 tsp honey (optional)
Salt to taste

Mix all the ingredients of marinade in a large bowl. Add the vegetables and mix well.Keep aside for half hour.
Meanwhile on a dry plate, pour few drops of olive oil, oregano, mix well.Coat the two halves of tomato with it.

For grilling..
Place an aluminium foil on a high rack, place tomato pieces on it and grill for 5 minutes. You will know its done when the tomato skin starts to come off a bit, until then keep increasing the time.Amount of time it takes varies with each oven.

Place the grilled tomatoes on a plate.

On the same foil, spread all the vegetables and grill for 10 minutes.Stir it carefully with a spoon and again set it for 5 minutes. You will know its done when the vegetables turn brown on the corners.

Do not overcook/boil them as they are best enjoyed when crunchy.

Boil sweet corn by sprinkling some salt and pepper on it.

Serve grilled vegetables, tomato and corn together. Enjoy!
