Nasi Lemak Pizza Pops using Mission Foods Pizza Crusts

In conjunction with Mission Foods new product, being the Mission Pizza Crusts, I can’t help but thinking it was just the so appropriate time to finally bring my long-awaited ideas into reality. In fact, I already had this idea in mind for the longest time ever but due to time constraints, never been able to materialise. 

And so with the launch of Mission Pizza Crusts, it has never been a more perfect timing for me to start working on the challenge. And the gist of it all, is to come out with the most creative and aspiring Asian-inspired pizza. 

 
And you know what’s the first thing that comes to my mind when I heard the words “Asian-inspired”? Well, it has to be the recent Nasi Lemak burger from Macdonalds that has the whole of Singapore going frenzy and because I really enjoyed it so much and I got to enjoy it only once before all was sold out, I was secretly hoping that it would come back soon ! LOL.
 
 
So that’s it. My theme for Asian-inspired Pizza – yes, none other than Nasi Lemak Pizza. For once, I am not intending to re-invent the will by coming out with some exotic pizza flavours of my own. Instead, I decide to rejuvenate the traditional outlook of pizza by coming out with these Pizza Pops !
 
 
Since there are cake pops, candy pops, so that’s no reason why we can’t have pizza pops too, isn’t it ? And so here you go, Nasi Lemak Pizza Pops made wholesomely using Mission Pizza Crusts.  Initially I was still having hesitation about whether sambal chili, grilled tumeric-coconut infused chicken with ikan bilis and peanuts will go well with oozing melted cheddar and Parmesan cheese. But amazing the whole combination turns out to be pretty tasty ! I had 3 of the pizza pops at one go and compiled with the thin crust pizza, the portion was just appropriately satisfying.
 
 
And if you are wondering if the pizza pops could just hold up by itself just like a lollipop, here’s a shot for you to judge for yourself !
 
 
Instead of cutting a whole 10 inch pizza and each grabbing a slice from the traditional round pizza, this Nasi Lemak pizza pop idea should be able to give you more inspirations should you be planning for a party the next time !
 
 
Thanks for Mission Foods for extending the challenge to me once again !! 
Enjoy, folks !

  3. Cut out shapes from the pizza crusts using a cookie cutter.
  4. Spread a thin layer of sambal chili on one cut out pizza crusts and top it with the grated cheddar cheese. Place one to two satay sticks in the middle and top with another layer of the pizza crust.
  5. Spread the sambal chili on the 2nd top layer of pizza crust. Add the grilled chicken, toasted peanuts, ikan bilis and diced cucumber.
  6. Top with more grated cheddar cheese and sprinkle some Parmesan cheese as well. Complete with the rest of the cut out crusts.
