Yes, wud like to say a big THANK YOU to Kakyong and Zack for posting their respective recipes on Fotopages.

Pizza. I first come across Kakyong's Pizza hour as pretty interesting. To me, this is the first time I noted that chilli sauce can be added in pizza sauce. I've been making pizza using as many different recipes I could find, but this one is really time-saving and in fact manage to turn into pleasant surprises. My husband, I guess loves the pizza so much that he keeps reminding me to just stick to Kakyong's pizza recipe for any of my pizza 'Hour' (as Kakyong indicated in her entry). And why not? The pizza looks wonderful and taste even better. Easy as pie! Going Italiano?... Bon Appetit'

Quiche originated in Germany, in the medieval kingdom of Lothringen, which was ruled by the Germans. Lothringen then became a French province in 1766. It later changed the name from Lothringen to Lorraine. Ever heard Quiche Lorraine?..

We wud normally make our quiches by stuffing with the basic minced meat or tuna or mushroom. So it's only practical that I shud give Zack's proposed recipe of Crab and Swiss Quiche a try. Whalaa.. this classic open -faced French tart turned out really fine.... It's like feasting of savouries in appetising flavours. These delectable pastry is quick and easy to prepare. So to Zack... I say thank you to thee...

And as requested here is the recipe for Pizza Pinwheels. This is my daughter's favourite. It's also fast favourites for parties , picnics and family gatherings, with hot or cold drinks. Go on! Try it! Your children will like it too... Mamma mia... they're good!

Pizza Pinwheels

Puff Pastry
1/3 cup tomato paste ( I recommend Kakyong's pizza sauce)
1 tablespoon freshly chopped mixed herbs
minced tenderloins or any white meat
2 tablespoon olives, finely chopped (optional)
1/4 cup grated parmesan & mozarella mix
beaten egg for glazing

I bought my puff pastry from the superMart. This was a last minute request from my daughter actually.
Unroll pastry, spread with pizza sauce, sprinkle with herbs, meat, olives and cheese. Roll up pastry, cut into 1cm slices and place on a lightly greased baking tray. glaze with beaten egg. Bake in a very hot oven for 18-20 minutes or until pastry turn golden.

Variation: Crab Pinwheels

1/3 cup prepared seafood dip or mayonnaise
170g crabmeat, shredded
2 shallots, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
salt and pepper

Spread dip or mayonnaise on unrolled pastry, sprinkle with remaining ingredients and proceed as the above. I've tried adding some pizza sauce to this variation and it worked well too.

You can do your very own puff pastry too.

Puff Pastry
250g flour
250g pastry margarine
500ml cold water
lemon juice , optional

Rub 60g pastry margarine with the flour and salt until sandy. Add lemon juice and water and knead to a smooth pastry. Relax the dough in athe fridge for 20minutes. Roll to a rectangular 12 inches by 6 inches. Place the remaining margarine over 2/3 of the pastry. Fold the flap (without margarine) over half the portion of margarine-covered dough. Fold the 1/3 of the pastry over, thus forming a smaller 4" x 6" pastry. Rest in the fridge for 20 minutes. roll pastry to 12" x 6". fold to a double book turn. Repeat 5 times and the pastry is ready for use. ( macam susah kan... jangan patah semangat. Practise makes perfect!)
