Homemade Pizza

November 25, 2007

As promised, I attempted to make pizza from scratch today (^^,) the process is similar to making bread~ =X similar ingredients (bread flour, yeast) and similar steps (knead and proof). I love making soft and fluffy bread, the ingredients are simple and easy, but it’s patience that is key! U need to wait… n wait… n wait… for yr bread to proof. =p was pondering if i should make a thin or pan crust~ after throwing a dice, i’m going for pan crust! XD will attempt on the thin crust recipe next week…

Made the all time family favorite, Hawaiian pizza! Simple toppings, cheese, ham and pineapples~ =) mummy bought fresh pineapple just for this! XD Suppose to meet aishi for dinner tonight, as she is doing her hair today with peter(my stylist) =p since i’m meeting her, i brought along my 1st batch of pizza to let them try~ my 1st guinea pigs… (^^,) they like it!I’m glad that both of them says it’s nice… MUHAHA.
Got the recipe from HHB‘s blog. simple ingredients for the dough, therefore i’m determine to give it a try~ i half the recipe to make 2 21cm pizza. (used my 21 cm tart tray =p)

Ingredients: (for 2 21cm pizza)

170g bread flour
2 tsp instant yeast
1/4 teaspoon salt
100ml lukewarm water
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Steps:

  1. Mix flour, salt and yeast in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the water and olive oil. Mix with hand to form a soft dough. If needed, add a little more water.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for 10 mins or until the dough becomes smooth and elastic. (I used my mixer with a dough hook =X however kneading your own dough is a fun process, just like playing with play doh =p)
  3. Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover with cling wrap and leave to rise for 1 ~ 1.5hrs until double in size.
  4. Turn out the risen dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knock it down to release the air. Give it a few gently kneading. Roll or press out to a round to fit the pizza tray, place dough on baking tray.
  5. Spread pizza sauce over the pizza base to within 1 cm (0.5 inch) of the edge. Arrange a layer of grated cheese, followed by preferred toppings. Sprinkle the top all over with grated cheese.
  6. Leave the pizza in a warm place for about 15mins. Preheat oven to 220degC (425 degF)
  7. Bake pizza for 20~25mins or until the crust has risen and is golden and the cheese has melted. Serve warm.

    Chicken noodle soup is quite easy to make as it can also
    be made with leftover ingredients. When these
    are completely thawed, cooking them will be
    much easier and you won’t have to worry about having uncooked parts
    especially the center portion.

    Nowadays, though, bibingka can be made in the more conventional ovens.
    Whenever you get fresh herbs for any recipe, or should you develop your own in the garden, conserve time and money by producing
    herb ice cubes.
