So the other day hunger pangs came knocking on my stomach. Not wanting to eat the same old butter toast, I started surveying the refridgerator to cook myself something interesting.
While I was frisking things my eyes went on a box of pizza sauce sitting in the side shelf. Instantly a picture of pizza popped over my head.
Since there was no pizza base available and I didn't want to do all that baking I thought of creating a sandwich that tastes like pizza and hence this post.
Your kids will love this with their glass of milkshake and so will the adults.
For the sauce
1 tomato puréed
2 tbsp readymade pizza sauce
1 tbsp ketchup
Salt to taste
3/4 tbsp pepper
1 tbsp oregano
For the sandwich filling
Cheese slices as per liking
1/2 a capsicum chopped
75gm of cottage cheese (diced)
2 beans (chopped and steamed)
For the sandwich
2 tbsp butter (optional)
4 slices of bread
Sauce (mentioned above)
Filling (mentioned above)
Put oil in a pan. Add grated tomato and a pinch of salt.
When the tomato has reduced almost by half add pizza sauce, ketchup, salt, pepper and oregano. Give it all a good stir.
Add capsicum, beans and cottage cheese.
Mix well, cook for another minute or two and then take it off the flame and let it cool for a few minutes.
Put a pan on the flame. While it gets hot, place a cheese slice on one slice of bread, top it with the sauce and veggie filling and then cover it with another slice of bread.
Put a little butter on the pan (optional),and place the sandwich on it. Flip it over to grill the other side.
Once both sides are brown, put in a on a plate, slice it in halves or quarters and serve hot.
Repeat the same for the other two slices of bread.
These sandwiches make a wonderful snack. Try them and leave a comment!

Before I go any further I must mention that my father-in-law is QUITE awesome at cooking mutton and fish.
Coming from a household with a vegetarian kitchen I was quite ecstatic about the fact that I would be getting married into a household where cooking meat in the kitchen was not forbidden.
Talking about today's post this fish curry which is basically my father-in-law's recipe is fairly simple to cook and is light on the stomach. Not to forget it is absolutely delicious!
