Quick Petai Pizza in 15 minutes

Quick Cook

This is a recipe I’ve stumbled upon one night. There was a request for pizza and but there was nothing left in the fridge other than a packet of petai. So the first petai toast was created. It was unexpectedly delicious!

I’ve since perfected the petai pizza using other ingredients in my favourite Malaysian dish, petai sambal. They are almost always available at every Malaysian home i.e ikan bilis, onions and chillies.

It’s a quick recipe that’s easy to assemble and can be put in your mouth in 15 minutes. I find it extremely handy when I’m busy or hungry at night.

1. Spread tomato pasta sauce on pita bread.

3. Top with chilli, petai, anchovies and onions.
4. Bake in the oven at about 200 degree celcius for 1o to 15 minutes.

I like the cheese completely melted and the size a little burned and crispy. The pita bread makes a perfect portion for one. You can also divide it into four and share with your love ones.  JewelPie: Petai Pizza

Have a good weekend and enjoy your petai pizza!

    Hi Pam! So happy to hear that and you’re welcome. I only wish I can see how it turned out for you!

    I wasn’t a fan of petai too. I think its an acquired taste. But it’s good for health, try it with your hubby next time :)

    And if you have any good and easy recipes, please share it with us.
