Easy Healthy Delicious Home-Made Pizza!

pizza

So tonight me and Ray made some easy homemade pizzas! We made vegetarian pizzas, but you can easily at your favourite meat topping, such as salami, beef, or chicken. They are an extremely quick, nutritious, yummy, and filling dinner idea or snack. For those who haven’t tried pizza made on Lebanese bread, you should try it!! The base is really crisp and crunchy– it is really nice not to mention way healthier!

They took about 30 minutes, including preparation and cooking time.

What you need: Whole meal Lebanese bread, tomato paste, diced onion, grated cheddar cheese, thinly sliced zucchini, thin strips of capsicum, green olives (I find green olives way tastier than black ones), sliced mushroom, cayenne pepper (this is optional, but for those who like to spice their meals up a bit it is really nice!).

Simple side salad (optional)- cos lettuce, sliced tomato, sliced gherkin, grated carrot, 100% fat free French Dressing (optional).

How to make them:

1) Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius

2) Spread tomato paste on bread. Add diced onions. Top with all of the vegetables, cheese, and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper.

3) Put pizzas into oven- this works best if you lay them on a square of tin foil. However if you are careful you can just put it straight into the oven.

4) Take them out after 15 minutes or when they look crisp and the cheese has melted. Cut into 4 slices.

Serve with side salad!

sdfsdAnd it is as easy as that! Dinner done! I hope people try this recipe out and realise that pizza doesn’t have to be an unhealthy dinner, but can be really nutritious and healthy!

 

DIY Perfect Pretty Pink Nails

I love my OPI nail polish! Here I am wearing OPI Sweet Heart (baby pink) and OPI Pink Yet Lavender (pink glitter). For a unique, modern look, paint your fourth nail a different colour. This would have also looked good with white polish, instead of glitter.

I find that my OPI nail polish goes on really smoothly, has strong colour with only one coat of paint (see photo), and lasts for around a week!

DIY Simple & Lovely String Lantern/Chandelier

Here are some string lanterns that I made! I love the organic shapes of the lanterns- they are such cool, quirky, simple decorations that add a really fresh and clean vibe to any space!

Hang them in the corner of your living room above a lamp, in your bedroom, on your balcony, or basically anywhere to make your living space just a little bit cooler and more unique.

DIY simple string lantern/chandelier

You will need: PVA glue; tray for glue (optional); string; balloons; fishing wire; white spray paint

How to:
1) Blow up balloons to desired size.
2) Cut pieces of string (30-60cm*) and run them through the glue- the string should be completely covered with glue.
3) Wrap the string around the balloon- start vertically, then as you can go you can wrap it in different directions.
4) Hang the balloons to dry.
5) When dry (it took approx. half a day) take them down, lay them on some plastic or newspaper, and spray paint them white. Hang them back up and leave them for the rest of the day to dry.
6) Hang them up with fishing wire

Tips for creating:
1) I’m pretty sure most hardware glues- i.e wallpaper glue- will work fine.
2) To create a really round shape make sure you use ROUND balloons. I used normal balloons and they still worked out fine, just not as round.
3) Some instructions say to mix the glue with corn starch and water- I just used plain old glue and it was fine!
4) I didn’t use a tray for the glue, I just poured it on a sheet of plastic
5) I hung my balloons to dry on pieces of string from a clothes horse.
6) Mine really didn’t take more than 4 hours to be completed- I do, however, live in a hot country so this could have increased drying time.

Tips for displaying:
1) You can hang them all at different lengths- this adds a bit of depth and variation to your decoration.
2) Hang them above a lamp to create shadows of the lanterns on the wall.

*The bigger the balloon, the longer my pieces of strings were. Each balloon was wrapped with around 4 pieces.
