#FrannyCooks Recipe : Cheezy Garlic Tuyo and Mushroom Pizza

At the start of the year I made two major resolutions and I vowed to finally make sure that I accomplish them. First is to start a fitness regimen and to get healthy while the second is to cook more. It may sound contradicting but you see, I realized that being able to cook my own meals means I can have full control of the amount of oil, salt and sugar that goes into each dish. This way, not only will I be able to hone my domestic goddess kitchen skills, we can eat healthier too.

With that, #frannycooks on Instagram was born. I'm no Julia Child or Giada de Laurentiis (although I wish I am as pretty and hot as her), however that doesn't stop me from being creative with my cooking. Thankfully, I've moved forward from the usual pasta or egg dishes that I've been making all these years. I'm someone who loves challenges and on nights when I know that Paul will be working late, I take that as a challenge to be able to surprise him with a good meal.

I also hate wastage so another challenge is also to use up all leftover ingredients in the fridge or in our kitchen cabinet. So far, that's how I plan our meal. I would think of the things that we have and would start researching on different possible dishes that I can make. So far, I've managed to make my very first Beef Stroganoff which Paul happily ate and last night, I made my first homemade Garlic Tuyo & Mushroom Pizza using that pack of Garlic Tortilla Wrapper and White/Yellow Cheese that I bought the other day.

Making this was super fun and easy! It's the perfect thing to prepare when you have less than 30 minutes to whip something up and all you need is a dependable oven toaster. Here's what you need:

1 pack of store-bought Flour / Wholemeal Tortilla Wrap (any flavor is fine)
1 can of sliced mushrooms
1 bottle of Garlic Tuyo in Olive Oil
1 can of tomato sauce
1 pack of quickmelt cheese (cheddar or mozzarella is fine)

To assemble:
1) Place one tortilla wrap on a round flat plate.
2) Pour 2 tablespoons of tomato sauce at the center of the tortilla wrapper and slowly swirl outwards to cover the tortilla wrap

3) Start adding your toppings (mushroom and garlic tuyo)
4) Preheat your oven to 200 degrees celsius

5) Transfer the pizza on to the baking pan and generously cover with cheese (a.k.a. go crazy with the cheese!)
6) Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese melts and starts to bubble

As you can see, it's really easy and simple. A lot more variations can be done with this pizza like adding meat (sausages, spam, ham) or drizzling some truffle oil before serving. The fun part about making your own homemade pizza is it allows you to be creative. There's no hard and fast rules on what should be your toppings. Anything goes, as they say. Enjoy!

Curious about the Garlic Tuyo in Olive Oil? It was given to me by my dear friend Dedet and I've been adding this on top of my rice, as part of our pasta dish or I've also created a bowl of Garlic Tuyo Fried Rice awhile back with it too. To order, call +63-9178981047.
