Tuna Pan Loaf Pizza

I made this in my cooking class using a chicken version and it tasted so yummy, the taste of egg toast gives the loaf an extra deliciousness, so I thought I will give a try using a tuna pizza filling. I made this for the third day iftar and my son loved it.
Ingredients: A
1 can tuna (I used in oil)
1 medium onion (chopped)
Chilly (githeyomirus)
1 spring curry leaves
2 garlic (crushed & chopped)
Salt
5 tbs vegetable oil
Ingredients: B
For the sauce
1/3 cup Chilly & garlic sauce
1/3 cup tomato sauce
Or
You can use your favorite pizza sauce
Ingredients: C
10 eggs
½ of a medium onion chopped
1/2 tsp pepper powder
Salt
Ingredient: D
10 to 12 slice of Bread (upper hard layer removed)
3 tbs vegetable oil
3 slices of slice cheese
Mozzarella cheese (optional as much you like)
And
You will need about 81/2 inch pan with a lid

Method:

In sauce pan heat 5 tbs oil, fry onion, chilly, garlic and curry leaves until onions are soft. Into this add tuna and salt, cook for 2 minutes stirring constantly. Add the sauce and mix for another 2 minutes. Set aside.

In a bowl mix all ingredients C and set aside. Oil the pan generously and dip both sides of each slice of bread into the egg mixture coat well and arrange bread slices in the pan covering the entire bottom & sides. To cover small areas just tier the bread in to small pieces and dip in egg mixture. 

When the entire pan is covered with egg dipped bread slices pour the tuna mixture and spread evenly. Arrange the cheese slices both, slice cheese & mozzarella cheese.
(You can grate the cheese for an even layer, I am too lazy to do that
Again cover the tuna & cheese mixture by layering bread slices dipped in egg mixture covering totally, pour rest of the remaining egg mixture on top of the pan loaf.

Put the lid on and on the lowest heat of your stove cook the pan loaf pizza until the bottom is slightly brown & toasted, it will take about 5 to 10 minutes.

Keep on checking as the loaf may burn easily. Now take the lid off & flip the bottom of the pan loaf on the inside of the lid, again flip the pan loaf pizza upside down into the pan and now don't put the lid on, just bake until the bottom is nicely brown. When the bottom of pan loaf gets brown you can smell bread toasting. This is how I know my pan loaf pizza side is done. When both sides are baked slice & serve with a salad ........ enjoy!
