Homemade Hawaian Chicken Pizza

Pizza is oven baked flat bread toppings with mix of vegetable, seafood and meat of choice and melted with cheese. It may seasoned with traditional herbs, pepper and salt. Pizza which commonly famous as Italian cuisine becomes one of the favorite dish all over the world with different versions. Hard part of preparing pizza at home is the dough.  After so long, i was eager to bake a pizza at home for dinner.  My challenge is preparing the pizza base myself, since i used to buy the ready made crust available in market.  Since i have over left pineapples in my fridge, so  decided to use that for toppings.  Pineapples best combine with chicken chunks. Red chilies used to add spiciness.  I avoid to use too much ingredients. Without disappointment,  my family enjoyed their dinner very much.

Ingredients for the dough :

  • 500 g - Flour

  • 1pkt (11g) - instant yeast

  • 1 1/3 cup - Water

  • 2 tsp - sugar

  • 2 tsp - salt

  • Olive oil

Ingredients for the Toppings :

  • 1/2 cup Boneless Chicken cut into small chunks

  • 1/2 cup Pineapple cut into small chunks

  • 1 Red Chili slice thinly

  • 3/4 cup Mozzarella Cheese

  • 2 pcs Button Mushroom cut into stripes

  • 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce

  • salt

  • pepper

  • mixed herbs

Preparation Method :

Transfer the flour in a wide bowl. Dissolve sugar,  yeas with water in a separate bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes Make a well in center of the flour and mix yeast water and sprinkle the salt. Using spatula draw all the ingredients all together. Then mix with your hands to form dough.   Then transfer to a work surface which coated with some flour. Knead the dough with your hands pushing and folding. Knead for 10 minutes at least for the dough to take in a little more flour, and until it no longer sticks to your hands.

Take a deep bowl. Spread little olive oil with your fingers around the bowl. Transfer the dough inside the bowl. Make a cross cut on top and sprinkle with little bit oil to prevent cracking while rising. Cover with a kitchen towel. Let the dough rise double approximately for 2 hours.

When the dough rises to double the volume, punch down to eliminate the air bubbles inside.  Then transfer to the floured surface. Cut the dough into 2 or 3  portions.

Roll to flatten the dough and shape into round layer .  Sprinkle flour on the pizza pan.  Transfer the dough to the pizza pan. Fold the edges inward to form thick layer.  Using a fork prick  on the dough surface.

Preheat the oven 200 degree Celcius.

Cook the chicken cubes with little bit olive oil and sprinkle with some mix herbs. Set aside. Spread the pizza layer with spaghetti sauce. Then sprinkle with chicken cubes followed by pineapple chunks, chillies sliced and sliced mushroom. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top.

Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked.

This is my perfect home made pizza! Voila!
