Mediterranean Pizza and Chunky Fruit Yoghurt

Category: By Aleckii
Happy Deepavali! Lucky for us, our professor allowed us to take a day off.

Dinner was extra late for me. After our Christian Cell Group meeting, it was already 8. Only then did I have time to start making my dinner. Dinner tonight had a Mediterranean feel to it.

Mediterranean Pizza

Crust:
5 cups of flour
1 packet of instant yeast (Heinz)
1 table spoon of sugar
Salt to taste

Base:
Tomato paste
Chili sauce
Oregano, Rosemary
Salt to taste

Toppings:
Sausages, sliced
Canned pineapples cubes
Champignon mushroom, sliced thinly
Capsicum, sliced thinly
Onion (sliced into rings)
Grated cheese
Olive, sliced
Oregano to taste
* Garden Tomatoes and chopped parsley can also be added


Steps:


  1. For crust, dilute sugar in lukewarm water (heated to about 40 degree Celcius). Then add yeast.



  2. Add the yeast mixture into flour. Add salt to taste. Knead the dough mixture until well-mixed. Cover with a piece of moist cloth and leave to stand for 45 minutes.



  3. The dough should have risen into at least twice its size after 45 minutes. Knead it once more, then using a rolling pint, mold the dough into a greased pan.



  4. Bake in the oven 150 degrees for 15 minutes.



  5. Spread the pizza base evenly over the crust. Then arrange all ingredients for the topping accordingly.


  6. Lastly, spread the grated cheese over the pizza and continue to bake in the oven in 150 degrees for another 15 minutes.

The after product



Considering that I had limited ingredients (the last time I shopped shop for my food was a long time ago), it turned out not bad. The aroma of the Champignon mushroom and Capsicum mingled along nicely. I did feel that the pizza lacked cheese though! Too bad I ran out of it.
Sharon was around when I was baking my pizza, and I gave her a piece to try out.

Sharon's Comment: 'One piece is REALLY filling! I can really taste the herbs. Wished it had more cheese though!'


Whilst I was waiting for the pizza to bake, I concocted up another recipe that I thought would complement well to the mediterranean dinner I was going to have.

    Wah.. I won't have the patience to bake or cook. Was just telling my friend the time used to prepare food does not justify the time taken to eat. HEheh..
