|Ready to bake|
...chinese sausages! My son said this is strange combination when I told him the ingredients but he ate half the pizza so it must be good huh! :D This pizza is inspired by lena's of Frozen Wings' pizza post; when I saw it, I immediately when about preparing the very easy dough and bake this pizza within the hour! Very simple and easy indeed! All ingredients are left overs so this is a 'clear the leftovers' kind of pizza:D
|Ready to eat...really tasty!|
For Pizza Base
110gm plain flour I used 150g to make a 9 inch pizza
1 tsp baking powder I used 1 tsp yeast and proof for 30 minutes
1/2 tsp salt
freshly milled black pepper( i did not add ) I added some chilli flakes
1/2 tsp dried oregano ( i used italian herbs)
1tbsp of olive oil plus 3tbsps water ( i added another 2tbsps water ) I used all water only (adjust accordingly to hydrate the dough to produce a soft dough)
For the toppings, I used these:-
Enough carbonara sauce to cover the pizza
Chinese sausage, sliced and panfried
Sliced canned mushrooms
I used an assortment of Mozzarella shredded cheese, cheddar slices and cheese powder
Yellow and red cherry tomatoes, cut into halves
|Using leftover ingredients except for the cherry tomatoes|
1.Start off by measuring the flour and yeast, pepper and oregano in a mixing bowl and mix them together.
2.Then add water and pour this into the dry mixture. Using a wooden spoon, stir to form a moist but unsticky dough and transfer to a floured surface. Keep adding water a little at a time to form the dough. Once dough is roughly formed, pour onto the counter table and knead until a smooth dough is formed. Leave it covered for 30 minutes to proof before rolling or patting to a 9 inch diameter round.
3. Pat the dough into a pizza pan and smear pasta sauce on the top before proceeding with the rest of the toppings.
4. Bake at 200 deg C for 25 minutes or till golden. Remove and serve immediately.
