Easy Pizza on a LAZY Sunday evening

It was a Sunday evening and I did not feel like doing a lot of cooking nor do I want to dress up and go out for dinner or buy takeaway.  I was very lazy and just wanted to flop on my couch and watch a movie with my Quay Lo. I had some tomato sauce which I made a few days ago and a last piece of ready made pizza dough in the fridge. Those two were perfect for preparing an easy and quick dinner.  It only took me 30 mins to get the pizza ready to be served.  I served it on paper plates and we ate our meal with our fingers. The most thrilling part for me is no dishes to wash. Oooo I loved it!! I didn't think I could have done any better at being lazy could I? LOL!

½ cup black olives, sliced
1 tbs thinly sliced sundried tomatoes,
5 cloves thinly sliced garlic
1 medium onion thinly sliced in rings
1  8-in ready made pizza dough

1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

Ingredients for the sauce:
½ tsp chopped garlic
2 shallots, thinly slices
1 can plum tomatoes (drain off ½ the juice)
1 tbs tomato paste
½ bullion chicken stock
½ tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp olive oil

Method to prepare the sauce:
Heat oil and sauté garlic and shallots till fragrant. Add plum tomatoes and juice. Break up the tomatoes as much as possible with your ladle.  Lower hear to  medium and let simmer for about 10 mins. Add chicken stock, ground black pepper, sugar and tomato paste.  Mix well and side aside.

Method to assemble pizza:
Brush the sauce onto the pizza dough and add (A) and top with grated mozzarella cheese.  Bake in the pre heated oven at 220 degrees C or 450 degrees F for 10 – 15 mins or when the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted.

  6. bet my hubi would love this. But he likes the thick crust type

  7. Hi Veronica,

    Sounds like the perfect lazy Sunday evening to me. Pizza is one of my all time favorite comfort foods. I love how yours doesn't have meat in it. I'd much rather stack on the cheese ;) Your pizza looks perfectly cooked and so delicious. It's always great to share your food with your loved one. Hope you had a very and beautiful Mother's, Veronica

  8. Very tempting and fantastic pizza..

  9. Wow, u can even make a pizza when u're lazy. I'd probably go for instant noodles. Hahaha! I'm that terrible....

    Love pizzas but I've not tried making one myself. Your recipe will come in handy :)

  10. Skinny pizzas are for me! Looks so yummy! I just had ordered in thin pizza last Saturday! It cannot be compared to yours!

  11. Oh, your pizza looks perfect! I could eat a slice right now for breakfast! Lazy works for me and you did it perfectly for a great Sunday!

  12. I want that pizza too! Looks awesome delicious, Veron. Happy Mother's Day to you too. I'm sure you had fun.
    Best wishes,

  13. It's a scrumptious winner! I too will opt for a LAZY Sunday evening!

  14. No dishes to wash?!? We should have been making your pizza all throughout our kitchen remodel project.

  15. The pizza looks FANTASTIC!!! I would die for a slice of it this evening, as I am too lazy to do anything in the kitchen tonight ;)

    Best wishes,

  16. A belated Happy Mother'sDay to you too! Lovely pizza.... yummy! Wish I could have a slice now as I haven't eaten yet;) salivating now ;p

  17. Belated mothers day to you. Easy pizza looks awesome.

  18. @ Quay Po: Hey, here's wishing you a Happy Mother's Day! The pizza looks good

  19. I'm so glad you had a nice and relaxing Mother's Day, and didn't have to do a lot except to make a fantastic pizza, which is always a welcome in our household.

    Ready mad pizza crust is fast and you have it right on hand, any time you need it, but the topping is what really counts, and your topping is so tempting, ooey gooey cheese topping, and yummy sauce, and love the onions, one of my must "haves"...Happy belated Mother's Day to you, as well:DDD

    This special day should be celebrated all year for us...LOL

  20. I like food when eating is casual. Lazy is good sometimes. This pizza looks very delicious and it is hard to believe that it is made when you are lazy...

  21. David: I should have ordered in mine too:D

    Belinda: I was lazy last week Sunday, on Mother's day I worked hard on a D.I.Y. popiah party.

    yummychunklet: Thanks. We all have times where we just want to stay home and enjoy each other company.

    NEL: Thanks, I think I prefer yours with the homemade crust.

    Coraine: I enjoyed my Mother's day very much. Thanks.

    Small Kucing: My hubby is the opposite, he likes the thin crispy crust.

    LeQuan: Thanks, I had a wonderful time with love ones on Mother's Day and I know you enjoyed yours with your hubby and your little prince and princess.

    Priya, Swathi: Thanks, appreciate your encouraging words.

    Shirley: If my Quay Lo is not home, instant noodles will be my choice too.

    Passionate about Baking: I guess homemade pizzas are always tastier than ordered in. If I did not have left over of tomato sauce and the pizza dough in the fridge I will order in too.

    Pam: I am happy to offer you a slice.

    Kristy: Thanks and hope you had a great time yourself.

    Stevie: Sounds like a plan to me.. hehe

    tanja: I know where you are coming from, I feel like that now and then too.

    Keats: Who doesn't? We are allowed to be lazy once in a while.
