Pizzas, Original or Oriental?

Hawaiian, little one's favourite pizza topping. Made this for lunch and delivered it to school for him and his friends now that they have to stay back twice a week for extra classes in preparation for the 'big' exam this year. Some bribe food to make the little ones happy and to motivate them :) They enjoyed it and asked for encores in the future :)

This extra class thingy also means I will have to crack my head a little extra to think about what to make for him that will make him happy and once in a while have a little extra for him to share with his friends. It must also be something that can be easily handled and finished quickly because of the short break. While surfing the many fabulous food-blogs, I came across this one, Noodle Pancake. Yeah, that was the name given, I made up that Oriental Pizza nickname, it looked like Pizza to me and since it was made from instant noodles, it's Oriental . Hence, I nicknamed it Oriental Pizza, moreover, I felt that the name will have a bigger appeal on little one because of his love for pizza.

Looks cute doesn't it?
Verdict : Interesting. Little one and his friends were surprised and thought that it looked funny :) The kids loved it, they just love everything instant noodles. The first question that he asked me when I picked him up from school was how did I get the noodles to stick together?? He said he wants to make it on his own the next time.

How to make it?
Here's the recipe.
  • 1 pack instant noodles
  • 2 eggs
Ingredients (There's no hard and fast rule, just use whatever fillings that appeal to you, just like pizza toppings)
  • Some ham/sausages/bacon
  • Some shredded carrot
  • 1 piece of cheddar cheese (chopped)
  • Some spring onions or whatever vegetables preferred by your little one (I used romaine lettuce)

Use salt and pepper or a little of the flavourings provided with the noodles (1/2 teaspoon)
  1. Cook the instant noodles in boiled water. As soon as noodles loosen, remove and drain water.
  2. Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl, add in the ingredients, seasonings and the noodles.
  3. Heat and oil and a shallow, non stick frying pan.
  4. Pour in the egg mixture. Spread it out like a pizza.
  5. Fry over slow fire. Close lid.
  6. Flip over only when the centre looks cooked. You can have it slightly crispy if preferred.
