Homemade Pizza

Pizza1


Pizza is one of my favourite food. I just love the melting cheese on top of it. Most of the time I will order the pizza with extra cheese, it won't go wrong with just any topping and I prefer the thick crispy crust to the thin one. But once a while I would love to have the thin one for a change. I would like to thanks Wendy for sharing with me on how to make the pizza crust, I was short of flour and I replace it with bread flour. It turn out great and my kids love it. I don't have to go to Pizza Hut to have my pizza anymore!☻

Pizza Dough: Makes enough for two 10" pizza

300 g bread flour/plain flour
2 1/2 tsp instant yeast
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
200 g warm milk (110f/43c)
80 g warm water (110f/43c)
3 tbsp olive oil/corn oil



Method:

Sieve flour and yeast in a bowl. Add in sugar, salt and set aside.
In another smaller bowl mix milk, water and olive oil. Pour it to the flour mixture slowly bit by bit and stir till it's well combined. The dough will be sticky at this time.
In a flat surface, dust your hand with some flour and slightly knead the dough for 2-3 minutes until it can forms a ball.
Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with cling film and let it rest for 20 minutes.
Remove the cling cover from the dough and punch the dough down so it deflates a bit.
Split the dough into 2 and roll it to the 10" round piece.
Let the dough rest for 5 mins and brush it with some olive oil before we top it with topping.


Pizza Topping: for one pizza

150g Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Mushrooms, thinly sliced
Bell peppers, stems and seeds remove, sliced
Sausages, cook ahead and sliced
Onions, thinly sliced
Pineapples, I use 3 pieces canned pineapple - cubes
Fresh tomatoes, sliced
3-4 crab sticks, cut into 1cm pieces
Tomato sauce


Sprinkles on top of Pizza:
Garlic salt
Parmesan cheese


Preparing the Pizza:

Preheat oven to 200c for at least 30 mins.
Brush the top of the dough with olive oil (to prevent it from getting soggy from the toppings).
Spoon on the tomato sauce , sprinkles with cheese and place your desired topping on pizza.
Note that you are not going to load up each pizza with a lot of toppings as the crust will end up not crisp that way but I overload my pizza seriously.... hahaha~
Cover it with more cheese on top, sprinkles some Parmesan cheese and some garlic salt on top. Bake in 200c for 15 minutes on greased pan.

I use my cookies pan to bake this and the shape of the pizza turn out like this ~


Note: *Greased the pan we use before we put the pizza on it. Pizza will sticks on the ungreased pan* - I'm now very full after having 2 pieces of it ~ burp!!

It's Yummy!
