Detroit Style Pizza

Detroit Style Pizza
Yields 2 Square Pizzas or 1 Rectangle Pizza Serves Approx 8 People

Hey everyone, Mark here. I love pizza. Like, I REALLY love pizza. I would eat it every day if I could. But until recently I’d only ever had the traditional round styles we’re all familiar with as well as the much debated Chicago style pizza. I stumbled across this style one day when I was scrolling through Youtube for dinner ideas. I’d heard of it before, of course. But I’d never thought to try it myself until now!

Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza

Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza Serves Approx: 6 – 8
Makes 2 9inch deep dish pizzas

Who doesn’t love pizza? Chicago’s signature pizza style is quite controversial in the USA, especially among New Yorkers, who may argue that it isn’t a pizza at all. I don’t care what you call it. I think that not only is this a delicious, unique dish, but also think its one of the most deliciously decadent things I’ve ever eaten.

Creamy Tomato Chicken Pasta Bake

Creamy tomato chicken pasta bake Creamy Tomato Chicken Pasta Bake Serves Approx 8

Hi all, Mark here. When Alicia asked me what to do with our leftover roast chicken, I decided to take a look online. I found a slow cooker/crockpot recipe that caught my eye but it didn’t quite suit what we wanted. So, after tweaking it enough that I’m not just stealing someone else’s recipe, I came up with something that may well become a family favourite for us.

Let’s crack on!

Roti Canai Recipe

Roti Canai Recipe
Roti Canai Recipe Makes 4

I know its a bit of a cheat using the same picture for the Roti Canai Recipe, but I had two choices, make the Quick Chicken Curry recipe really long by including the Roti Canai recipe there or making a fresh batch, just to take a photo for this recipe. Anyway, this isn’t the soft wrap like Roti that you can buy in the supermarket. This is a flaky, crispy, fried flatbread that are laminated with butter. These also go great with my Chicken Rendang Curry!
