- Bread ( white/ brown) 8 slices
- Butter 2 tbsp
- Red Capsicum 1/2 , chopped
- YellowCapsicum 1/2, chopped
- Sweet Corn 1 cup, blanched
- Onion 1 medium size, chopped
- Garlic 3 cloves, chopped
- Green chilli 2 nos, chopped
- Oregano 1/4 tsp
- Rosemary 1/4 tsp
- Tomato Sauce 2 tbsp
- Cream Cheese 1 small piece or 1 tsp
- Cheddar Cheese / Mozzarella Cheese 2 to 3 tbsp, grated ( as required to cover the topping)
- Black Pepper Powder 1/2 tsp
- Olive Oil
First cut the edges of the bread slices, and roll using chapatti roller and cut circles using a round cookie cutter or container lid. Don't try to stretch too much, just flatten a bit.
Mean time we can make the stuffing. Heat a pan with olive oil, once its hot add oregano and rosemary saute for a second. Add chopped garlic and saute for few seconds. Now add chopped onion and saute for 1 minute. Add chopped green chilli and saute till onion becomes soft. Add chopped red and yellow capsicum and saute for few seconds. Add sweet corn now and saute for a minute. Cover and cook for 2 minutes. Open and add salt, black pepper and tomato sauce mix well. Cover and cook for 1 minute. Open and add cream cheese mix well. Put off flame and keep it aside.
Apply butter slightly on both sides of the circle bread slices. Grease the muffin trey and keep this buttered circle bread slices into it. Now insert one scoop of sweet corn mix into the cups, do the procedure into each cups. Grate the mozarrela or cheddar cheese over each cups.
Preheat the oven into 200 degree C for 10 minutes. Now reduce heat into 180 degree C and keep the muffin trey inside the oven and bake until the bread turns slightly golden brown. It will take 20 to 25 minutes.
NB: If you are using brown bread check carefully while baking as the browning doesn't show clearly as white bread. If you don't have oregano and rose marry add chopped coriander leaves in the end. You can use pizza sauce instead of tomato sauce. You can use cooked chicken breast instead of sweet corn and make it non veg pizza cups. I can say the filling is endless you can use minced meat, paneer etc. Enjoy cooking.
