Weird Sizes......

What do i mean about 'Weird Sizes"...heehee! I've made pizzas for dinner today, in few sizes...small, medium, ...and also square..haha!...and my very dear friends cum neighbour came over for dinner too. At the beginning i was so nervous cause this was the 1st time making pizza. Don't even know whether its successful or fail....then i told myself....i shouldn't invite my friends here, i don't even taste it myself yet!!! Really regret at that time.
Slowly i took it out from the oven, then took a few photos of it.....and then 'served'!
Results?!!.....Its great! Not to say its very very yummy and delicious, but seeing the kids eating one piece after another....i was so happy and satisfied...:)
I got this recipe from one of my favourite book.."Bake With Yen". I just follow the ingredients for the dough but did some changes for the tomato sauce and the ingredients for the topping. Well, you can just add anything you favour on top, right? So i did some with spicy flavour..:P

Ingredients for the dough:
250g Bread flour
140ml Cold water
1/2 tbsp Instant yeast
1 tsp Salt
2 tbsps Cooking oil

~ Mix flour, cold water instant yeast and salt for a few minutes in a mixing bowl with a dough hook, then add in oil. Mix till dough is elastic. (Knead about 10 minutes)
~ Let proof in a bowl for 30 minutes then divide the dough into sizes you prefer.
~ Flattened the dough and put on an oiled pan or pan layed with baking paper.
~ Proof the flattened dough again for 20-25minutes, pook the dough base with a fork and half bake the pizza bases at 220'C for 10 minutes.
~ Spread pizza sauce evenly over the pizza base and add topping ingredients of your choice.
~ Sprinkle some mozarella cheese on top then bake at 220'C for about 20 minutes.

Ingredients for Pizza Sauce:
1 small tin of tomato puree
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
Some oregano and Bay leaves
3 tbsps Olive oil
2 pips Garlic
3 large onions
3 Fresh tomatoes

~ Grind the onions and garlic. Separately grind the tomatoes.
~ Heat up the olive oil,Fragnant the grounded onions and garlic, add in tomato puree and grounded tomatoes.
~ Cook for 5 minutes then add in bay leaves and oregano. Season with salt and sugar and cook till sauce thicken.
** Sugar can be more if the paste is too sour.

Well for the topping......some with sausages, chicken breast chunks (marinated with some black pepper and soy sauce), capsicum, button mushrooms, pineapples and onions.
Some was spicy...heehee! I marinated the chicken breast chunks with "Nyonya Laksa" paste which my friend gave some time ago. I just recall it was still in my fridge, so i just play with it! And the taste was great too. Of course you can just marinate with some curry powder and'll turn out perfect too.
Lastly there must be cheese on top. Mozarella cheese ...yea yea....i covered the whole pizza with it. hee hee!

Everybody was satisfied with my creation today...:) I was so happy, so i ate alot too......'sigh' to do exercise early morning tomorrow...;p
