Pizza

I never make a pizza before even though I love to bake. I heard that pizza is one of the easiest thing that you could make at home [well, actually I heard it from my older sister], and so one Sunday afternoon I decided to make my own small pizza.

Ingredients :

  • 180 gr sifted bread flour
  • 100 ml warm water
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 gr salt
  • 3 gr instant yeast
  • 15 gr sugar
  • Shredded chicken, japanese curry powder (S&B), cube carrots, Kraft cheese slices [toppings]

Method :

  1. In a small bowl, mix instant yeast and warm water. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, mix bread flour and salt and sugar. Pour the warm water mixture and 1 tbsp oil into the bowl. Knead the dough until it becomes smooth.
  3. Place the dough in greased bowl and cover it with plastic wrap or cloth and let it rest for 1 hour or until the dough is doubled.
  4. Start to cook the carrots with the curry powder [following the instruction from the curry powder package].
  5. Preheat the oven to 220 degree celcius.
  6. Dust the working table with corn meal and roll the dough on top of it, leaving a 1 cm thickness at the sides.
  7. Spread the toppings [curry, carrots, shredded chicken and cheese slices].
  8. Bake the pizza for 15 – 20 minutes [Depending on the type of oven].
  9. Serve and Enjoy!

Lemon Curd

Ingredients :

  • 120 ml lemon juice
  • zest of lemons
  • 60 gr butter
  • 120 gr sugar
  • 2 eggs

Method :

  1. Pour water into a saucepan and bring the water to boil.
  2. Pour lemon juice, lemon zests, butter and sugar into a bowl. Place the bowl on top of a saucepan.
  3. Stir the ingredients until the butter melts. Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl.
  4. Slowly, pour the whisked egg into the lemon mixture and mix the ingredients.
  5. Stir the ingredients until you get a nice creamy texture.
  6. Pour into small jars and let them cool down for a while before placing them in the fridge.
  7. Leave the lemon curd in the fridge until they are needed.
