Pizza! Pizza!


Feeling like having a good home made pizza? With lots of fresh ingredients?  Call toll free number at 1-300-00-1234..haaha..just kidding!!

My children were delighted when I decided to make pizza for dinner tonight.  Not only pizza is one of their favorite food but they get to help with making it too!  Great time for family bonding.

I never liked frozen pizza dough.  Each time I make pizza, it has to be done from scratch.  You will see that it's not difficult to make the dough.

Pizza Dough:  7g dry yeast, 1/2tsp sugar, 1/2tsp salt, 1cup warm water, 2 1/5 cup bread flour; olive oil to oil the pan and semolina flour for dusting.
Mix yeast, sugar, salt and water and cover with cling film and set aside for 10 mins.  Mixture will be foamy.

 Make a well in the center of the flour and pour the yeast mixture. 

 Mix the yeast with the flour and knead till it's elastic.



 Bonding with my 2 lovely assistants!

The good thing about baking your own pizza is that you can choose what flavor and ingredients you want to add. I made 3 flavors - Barbeque Chicken, Bacon & Sausage and Salmon.  Since I have some Salmon in my freezer, thought of experimenting it as pizza topping.  It turned out okay except that the taste of salmon is quite strong.  For those who love salmon, I guess, this is alright but for those who doesn't like the fish, they will find the taste a bit too fishy for them.  Not such a good idea after all!  Luckily it's only a small tray.
