Pandesal is one of the staples in the Filipino household specially during breakfast. We simply cannot have our coffee without our pandesal. I grew up dunkin’ my pandesal in my creamed coffee, putting a slice of cheese in between two pandesals and slicing the pandesal and spreading peanutbutter in it.We buy pandesal from just about any bakery that sells it.
Now that I’m a mom and have a family of my own, I buy only Gardenia Pandesal. Why? Because it has ISO and HACCP Certification, meaning I can be guaranteed that it is clean and safe to eat. It is also enriched with vitamins and minerals which is good for my daughter. More so, unlike other pandesals it stays crusty on the outside yet soft in the inside, whether its hot or not.
Can you guess what’s our favorite way of enjoying Gardenia Pandesal??? Check out the video below.
Yup. Ykaie and I love eating Gardenia Pizza Pandesal not only for breakfast but also for merienda! It’s very easy to do and since you make it by using Gardenia Pandesal, it fits ykaie’s hand perfectly.
The ingredients I used to make our Gardenia Pizza Pandesal are those which I already have at home like cheese, pizza sauce, mushroom, pineapple bits, bell pepper and bacon. But you can put whatever toppings you like or whatever you have at home like ham, hotdogs, onions. Put whatever you fancy.
For Ykaie, I only put cheese and bacon because she doesn’t like bell pepper and pineapple on her pizza pandesal.
Slice the pandesal in the middle and you have your pizza crust. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce, sprinkle with grated cheese and put your favorite toppings. Bake in the oven until cheese melts. Yumm!! Homemade Pizza in minutes!
Here are two more delicious things I make with Gardenia Pandesal….
