Tuna Pizza (A DIY Pizza)

With the fast phased lifestyle many of us are living, short and quick fix meals are highly in demand these days. Most parents like us or homemakers in particular, are time-strapped yet the desire to give our family yummy treats and scrumptious meal is still ever burning. We all require convenience but at the same time we want our food to have our signature touch into it. For this reason, the need to bridge the gap between well laboured meals and instant foods became so evident. This Tuna Pizza recipe, a DIY (do-it-yourself) Pizza is an example of various food solutions for that specific desire. All you need to do is assemble, add some creativity and you're on your way to your own exciting, gastronomic creation. Apart from that, preparing DIY recipes such as this is a good bonding activity for family and friends. What could be more exciting than preparing your own food and relishing huge servings of good laughs in between? It is said that all good things in life are enjoyed best when shared.
What you need:
2 pcs ready to use pizza dough, 1 small can pineapple tidbits (drained), 1 can of tuna flakes, 1 small red bell pepper (chopped in squares or julienne), 1 small green bell pepper (chopped in squares or julienne), 6 cloves garlic (chopped), 3 large tomatoes (sliced in rounds), extra virgin olive oil, 1 cup mozzarella cheese or quick melt cheese

How to make:
Half all the ingredients. Drizzle each pizza dough with olive oil. Layer it with the rest of the ingredients starting from cheese, then tomatoes, pineapple, bell peppers, garlic and tuna. Bake in the oven until the cheese melts and the side of the dough turns brown or is toasted. You can adjust the amount of all the ingredients if you like. Always remember that when it comes to cooking, you can go by your own taste at all times. In as far as my culinary journey is concerned; this is quite like a mantra to me already.

I like that your pizza does not have tomato sauce. I always find the sauce to be a bit overpowering. Your decision to use tomatoes instead makes me want to have a slice.
