I am encouraged every time I browse for recipes on Facebook, other sites, and all the TV cooking shows with websites. In most food bloggers site, I am seeing amazing creation food by home-cook food bloggers, professional cooks, and chefs publishing , sharing, and teaching on you tube.
A friend name Touche from church brought this sour cream, spinach and kewpie mayo dips as our breakup for the year group thing. I am so keen to try it, she told me the recipe. And as usual, I love to recreate any recipe to my liking and to suit my family intakes.
Well, my pizza creation is simple, easy and quick meal. This pizza is made with a twist instead of using pizza dough I have replace it with flat bread, replace tomato paste with sour cream, spinach and kewpie mayo spread.
So, to called it my own pizza, I have something borrowed and changed; something new, something good and perfect pizza night dinner. My pizza is delicious, creative, creamy and flavoursome. Let’s cook!!
