Idiot-Proofed Recipe - Pizza

I never knew that yeast smell like chicken essence until I helped mama make the pizza. I know calling 6235 3535 might be easier but how would you get to giggle with mama over chopping ingredients and kneading dough? And it was DELICIOUS! So nice that I am going to share the recipe with everyone so we can all gain weight together!

*** Ingredients


Dough
- Fresh milk (125ml)
- Yeast (1 tsp)
- Sugar (3/4 tsp)
- Salt (1/2 tsp)
- Margarine/butter (1 tbsp)
- Top flour (190g)

Toppings (Actually up to you but these were what we put in)
- Bacon
- Chicken, chopped and marinated with salt and black pepper
- French onion, chopped lengthwise
- Green/red/yellow capsicum
- Canned pineapple, diced
- Canned mushrooms, sliced
- Pasta sauce
- Shredded cheese

*** Making the Crust

- Mix fresh milk, yeast, sugar and salt. Leave aside for 10 minutes.
- Add in flour and butter to make dough. Knead.

- Cover with wet cloth for 10-15 minutes.

*** Readying the Toppings

- While waiting for the dough to rise, fry the bacon to release its heady fragrance.


- Do the same with the chicken.


After which they both look like this:


*** Putting It Together

- Grease the pan with butter or margarine. Heard that margarine is bad for health because it is artificial.


- Press dough onto pan.


A bit not smooth ah... But our first time doing... Heh heh... Got homemake flavor leh!


- Coat with pasta sauce.


No need to put at the sides. Too tomatoly liaoz...


- And add some cheese.


- Throw in the capsicums,


onions,


pineapples,


cooked chicken,


fried bacon,


and mushrooms!


- Top with more cheese! Cheese is the primary reason why this dish is so expensive. $10.50 for a big packet of "Pizza" shredded cheese! Think I'll use cheapo sliced cheese next time round. Haha...


- Pre-heat over at 240c for 15 minutes. Bake pizza for 25 minutes or until the crust is cooked. Or use Tupper-chef pan (as shown below) and cook under very low fire for 25-30 minutes. Mama is a Tupperware fan!


*** Mmmmmmmm

The final product!


Check out the cheese!


My slice of it!


Oozing melting cheese...

Good to make with a few friends and enjoy it during a bitching session! The italian way to eat pizza is to fold your slice into half and bite in! My way is just to stuff everything in. Heh heh...
