(Possibly also world’s shortest recipe but who knows, I haven’t checked)
Ever had that awkward feeling of knowing the next birthday party/pub quiz/school event is coming up and you need to bring some food but you don’t have the time (or energy) to prepare something really fancy or something that requires a lot of effort to make?
Well, don’t you worry, I got ya!
World’s best pizza buns will save your… behind: they’re easy to make and I promise you everybody loves them (they’re neither vegetarian nor vegan friendly, though, so beware).
What you’ll need (for 20 buns):
250g quark (with a dry fat content of 40%)
200g grated cheese (gouda works best)
250g diced bacon or salami
300g wheat flour
1 tbsp sugar
4 tbsp milk
6 tbsp oil (I’d advise you to use sunflower oil, as it isn’t as strong in taste as olive oil)
1 package of baking powder
Get a large bowl, throw in the flour, sugar, milk, oil and baking powder and stir it until all the ingredients are well blended. (If you get a crumbly mess out of it rather than a smooth dough, don’t worry, that’s intentional).
Grate the cheese, toss it in with the diced bacon and quark and the rest of the ingredients, then knead it thoroughly and – tada! – you’re almost done!
Now form approx. 20 small balls of cheesy-greasy goodness and pop them in the oven, bake at 200°C for approx. 10-15 minutes. Have an eye (or two) on the buns, though, as it really doesn’t take long for them to be ready.
