Fantastic Fast Food

Hello for those of you who don’t know me.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself briefly.
My name is Adam Smith.
I’m from Melbourne Australia and I work mostly at Nishi Umeda school.
My hobbies are karate, cooking, and just walking and exploring around the city or a beautiful shrine or some magnificent Japanese natural wonder.


In this blog entry, I would like to talk about cooking with using a rice cooking appliance (rice cooker).

If you have a busy life and you don’t want to spend a lot of time for cooking, a rice cooking appliance (rice cooker) can be a real time saver for you. And of course you don’t have to watch it. Just fill it up and press the button to start while giving you time to do something else or just relax.

There are lots of recipes on the Internet you can follow and prepare easily from main dishes to desert .

Here’s my basic pizza pie that I made.

Basic Pizza recipe
350g flour
2 ¾ tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp oil
additional toppings of your choice

Heat the oven to 200℃/180℃ fan/gas 6.


Mix together; 350g flour, 2 ¾ tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt in a small bowl

Add 1 tbsp oil and 170ml water then stir until it forms a ball.





If stiff, add more water, it should be soft but not sticky.


Knead on a floured surface for 3-4 mins. Roll into 2 balls, then flatten out.






Don’t forget to paint the inside of your (rice cooker) with a little olive oil before you put in your first layer of dough.


If you want to make it a little bit more crispy, put it in your toaster oven for a few minutes after you take it out from the rice cooker.


I hope you enjoy my blog.
