Throw a pizza party at home with 3 Asian-inspired recipes from Masterchef Asia winner

Hands up if you are one of those who just wants to come home after a long day at work and have home-cooked dinner in a flash, without too much of a hassle.

Mission Foods has made it easier and simpler for you with its wraps ranging from wholegrain, garlic, onions & chives, and even curry flavoured ones.

The flatbread maker has taken one step further and made it much easier for pizza-lovers to enjoy homemade pizza at any time of the day with their ready-made pizza crust, that promises you crispy thin pizza baked to perfection.

Available in two flavours – plain and wholemeal, Mission pizza crusts is an easy meal solution for families who need a quick and delicious do-it-yourself meal at home.

Mission Foods Singapore has collaborated with Masterchef Asia winner Woo Wai Leong, to develop three Asian-inspired pizza recipes for an unconventional take on pizza.

Taking inspiration from pizza classics, Wai Leong has creatively utilised commonly found local ingredients from supermarkets such as sambal belachan, lup cheong and even chye poh to create uniquely Singaporean flavour profiles.

CHINESE SAUSAGE, CHEESE AND TOMATO PIZZA

(1 pizza serves 4, Non Halal)

This pizza is inspired by the classic pepperoni pizza. Substituting the pepperoni for two types of Chinese sausage, one sweet while the other rich and livery gives this entire pizza the punch of flavour that is backed up by rich cheese and balanced by the acidity in the tomato sauce and fresh cherry tomatoes.

Ingredients
▪ Tomato sauce (You will have more sauce than you need for 1 pizza)
▪ 400g can tomato sauce (use your favourite!)
▪ 100g tomato ketchup
▪ 2tbsp/30g Worchestershire sauce
▪ 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
▪ 1 tbsp/15g soy sauce
▪ 1 tbsp/15g sesame oil
▪ Salt + black pepper, to taste

Add garlic and oil to an unheated pan and bring up to medium heat. Once the garlic starts to turn golden brown, add the remaining ingredients, except the salt and pepper. Bring the sauce up to a boil then cover with a lid and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring the sauce occasionally. Season with salt and pepper, let cool and reserve.

Tofu, century egg and chye poh are all ingredients common to Chinese cuisine. Its complementary flavour profiles are perfect for a pizza! The Hainanese chicken rice paste gives a wonderful gingery and garlicky aroma to the entire dish, while pickled green chillies add acidity in what is otherwise a very rich and decadent vegetarian pizza.

Boil off mirin and shaoxing wine in a saucepan, tilt pan towards flame or light with a burning splint to flambe, this will cook off the alcohol slightly faster.
