Pizza With Beefballs And Streaky Bacon

Light and easy meal is often welcomed by the husband...Pizza preferably, like the one above. The pizza base is easy to make and no fuss at all. Toppings can be of one's choice from minced beef to chicken or fully vegan. But knowing the husband, meat is a must have topping. I made Beef Balls for him with tomato and Italian herb sauce and plenty of some cheese and he is a happy human LOL! A light and easy pizza, where we can eat and watch TV at the same time.
I added fried bacon for the topping too

Preserved Dried Tomato in Rosemary Infused Olive Oil

My lovely cousin sister brought back gifts from Sicily Italy for me  .Dried tomatoes were one of the many gifts I received from her. What a wonderful cousin, having thoughts of me even while holidaying in Sicily. With the dried tomatoes, I preserved them in Rosemary infused olive oil. It will further enhanced the flavour of the tomatoes and helps keep them for longer period of them. Stored them in glass jar and keep in the fridge for future cooking.  Great for pizza, bread, pasta and in Italian stew. I can't wait to use them in my cooking. A great thank you to my lovely cousin. The steps in preserving the dried tomatoes are easy. For a jam jar size, I lightly heat up the olive oil. Once it is warm, add in dried rosemary herb and let the rosemary herb flavour infused into the oil. Pour the infused olive oil into the jar. Add in the dried tomatoes. Make sure the tomatoes are totally submerged in the oil. Once the oil has cooled down. Keep in the fridge till needed. It can keep for at least 6 months or more.

make sure the glass is sterilised properly before using. 

make sure olive oil is warm up so that the flavour of rosemary herb can easily infused into the olive oil, making it more fragrant
these dried tomatoes are from Sicily
