  • 1/4 cup Water

  • 3 tablespoons boiled Corn kernals
  • 6 Olives, chopped (black / green)

Initial Preparation

  1. Grease the cupcake molds with oil / butter. Preheat oven to 200C.
  2. Add tomato ketchup, butter, pepper, oregano, minced garlic in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds until butter has melted. Mix well to form a smooth sauce mixture.
  3. In a bowl, add all the chopped up veggies and a pinch of salt and mix well. Set aside

Making the Bread Pizza Cups

  1. Cut of the edges from all bread slices.
  2. Wet both hands and press a bread slice between them tightly to soften it up.
  3. Place the bread slice on top of a cupcake mold. Gently press it in ensuring you form a cup. If the bread breaks up, it is okay. Just stick it back in the torn place. If you want all even shaped cups, you can cut off the excess bread coming outside the mold with scissors. But it is not necessary.
  4. Brush each bread cup with oil. Bake at 200C for 5-8 minutes or until the bread has crisped up.
  5. Fill each cup with the sauce mixture and top with the mixed veggies. (Do not add too much or it will become soggy. About 1 teaspoon of Sauce and 1-2 tablespoons of mixed veggies per bread cup should suffice)
  6. Add a slice of cheese / grate cheese on top of the veggies
  7. Bake for 5-6 minutes or until cheese has melted
  8. Let them cool in the pan for a while and then remove. They are fairly easy to remove. Else use a knife to loosen up the edges.
  9. Serve hot with Mayo / Ketchup
