I like making this pizza because everyone can have what topping they want on their slice, either vegetarian, meat or fish. Today i used prawns, mushrooms and peppers and spicy sausage for this pizza.
First make a dough with 200 g flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp yeast, 1/2 tsp sugar, 1 tbsp olive oil and 150 ml warm water. Mix yeast, sugar, olive oil with water and let it stand for 10 minutes or so.
Sift the flour and salt in a bowl. Make a hollow in the centre and pour in the yeast mixture.Mix and knead for 10 minutes until you have a smooth dough. Cover the dough and leave in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour or 1 and half hours.
Roll out the dough and prick with a fork. Spread thinly with tomato puree and sprinkle with grated cheese. Then top each triangle with the topping you desire. Sprinkle extra bit of cheese on top and bake in hot oven 240 C for 10-15 minutes.

Hi all, if you are a snacker like me, rice cakes are great to keep you going till the meal time. They are only 29 cals per cake and quite filling. I found tahini paste and drizzle of maple syrup or honey on top makes it a tasty snack.
For 122 calories : you have 2 rice cakes with 2 tsp of tahini paste and 1 tsp of honey on top.
Although rice cakes are High GI but served with the sesame paste ( tahini ) makes it low GI and the honey satisfying for those with sweet tooth.
Seseame seeds sprinkling is optional.
