Pizza Mania

This is a simple Malaysianised pizza recipe for whoever wish to venture it at home . The dough is 100% homebaked. This recipe is enough to make two 9-inch pan pizza, similar to 2 large size pizza from Pizza Hut:

Pizza Dough
250g high protein flour/bread flour
250g plain flour/wholemeal flour
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp dry yeast
2 tbsp butter
50g virgin olive oil
200 ml chilled milk
1/2 tsp salt

There are 2 methods to make the dough. The first method is pretty simple coz it is all automatic. That is provided you have a breadmaker. All you have to do is to follow the below steps closely:
1. Measure all ingredients accurately.
2. Throw everything into the breadmaker.
3. Select 'dough"
4. Press "start".

Normally the cycle will end about 1 hour 35min including proofing time, depending on your machine. Anyway, I don't need to elaborate on this further cos breadmachine is meant for dummies and the lazybones (which i am one of them..hehehe!).

Herewith the "orangmatic" methods for the gungho ones:

1. Sift both flour and sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook.
2. Mix in butter and yeast.
3. Pour in milk gradually and mix well to form a soft n pliable dough.
4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly flour surface and knead well until smooth and elastic.
5. Lightly grease a bowl and place the dough in.
6. Cover with a damp tea towel and leave to rise until dough is double in size.

Bake the Base
Once the dough is risen, punch it down and let it rise for the second time. Grease a pizza pan. Roll out the dough into 1/2 cm thick to make the pizza base. Place on lightly grease trays or pizza pan and allow it to rise slightly. Brush the dough lightly with olive oil (optional). Prick with a fork on the surface of the dough. This is to ensure that the pizza base will remain in shape after baking.
Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 180 degree Celsius for 10 min. Bake the dough for 10-12 minutes.

Instant Pizza Topping
1 big onion, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 can Ayam brand tuna mayonnaise spread
2 cups pasta sauce
Grated mozzarella cheese

When the pizza base is ready, spread a layer of pasta sauce over the half-cooked pizza base; follow by the tuna mayonnaise spread. Scatter the chopped tomatoes and onions and grated mozzarella cheese and bake at 200 degrees C for 17 minutes until the sides of the pizza and the cheese turns golden brown.
