Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce and add your favourite pizza toppings.
Bake for 10-12 minutes in a microwave, its auto-cook program enables you to get your favourite recipes ready at the touch of a button.
Remove the pizza bagel and see if the cheese has melted properly. Cut into small pieces and serve.
HOMEMADE SUSHI ROLLS
Roll up your sleeves and embark on a fun culinary adventure with your siblings as you create your own sushi rolls with unique fillings and flavour combinations.
2 cups sushi rice
2 cups water
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Assorted fillings (avocado, cucumber, smoked salmon, crab meat, etc.)
Pickled ginger (optional)
Rinse the sushi rice in cold water until the water runs clear. Drain the rice and cook it at a high degree for 7-10 minutes in microwave. In a small saucepan, combine the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt.
Once the rice is cooked, transfer it to a large bowl and add the vinegar mixture. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to gently mix the rice until it is evenly coated. Let the rice cool to room temperature.
Lay a sheet of nori shiny-side down on a sushi mat or a clean kitchen towel. Use wet hands to spread a thin layer of rice on top of the nori, leaving a 1-inch border at the top.
Add your desired fillings in a horizontal line in the middle of the rice.
Use the mat or towel to tightly roll the sushi away from you, using the border at the top to seal the roll.
Repeat with the remaining nori sheets and filling ingredients.
Use a sharp knife to slice the sushi rolls into bite-sized pieces.
Serve with soy sauce, wasabi, and pickled ginger if desired. Enjoy!

2 cups of fresh fruit (such as strawberries, mangoes, and grapes)
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of sugar
Firstly, in a blender take mango, 2-3 tbsp sugar, and 1 cup water, and blend to smooth mango juice.
In a popsicle mould, place a few strawberries and grapes slices. Pour the mango juice into the mold.
