Wingz Can Bake - Wingz's Home Made Pizza

Welcome to Wingz can cook Sunday show! I havent been doing any fancy cooking lately so I thot this weekend i would wanna make pizza for my parents and my kid for Sunday lunch.

I picked up all the stuffs I need from Tesco Ampang on Saturday night (Yesday nite), Tesco opens untill 1am on the weekends, so if you wanna avoid all the terrible traffics and crowds then you can go there around 10pm coz thats when there will be lotsa parkings and it will not be as crowded too.

Ok, lets go back to our pizza shall we ?

These are the ingredients you need :

Ingredients for Spiced Pizza Base/Dough :

  1. Instant yeast - 1 teaspoon
  2. High Protein flour - 2 cups
  3. Salt - 1 teaspoon
  4. Sugar - 1 teaspoon
  5. Olive oil - 2 teaspoons
  6. Warm water - 2/3 cup (around 36-40°C)
  7. Dried Oregano Powder - 1 teaspoon
  8. Dried basil flakes - 1 teaspoon
Serves : 4 Regular size pizzas


Illustrations/Methods :



1. Prepare 2 cups of high Protein Flour

1 Cup of High Protein Flour

2. Sift flour with a sieve to get rid of any hearden flour that will affect the overall finishes of the pizza base, place a huge bowl below the flour lar of coz! if not you wanna sift it on to the table meh?!

3. Measure 1 tablespoon of yeast and put it into the bowl together with the flour you just sifted.

1 teaspoon of flour


4. Measure 1 teaspoon of sugar and put it into the bowl of flour together with yeast.

1 teaspoon of sugar


5. Measure 1 teaspoon of salt and put it into the bowl that holds the flour, sugar and yeast.

1 teaspoon of salt


6. Get 1 teaspoon of Oregano powder and Basil flakes each and chuck it into the bowl of flour just now.

Sifted High protien flour with sugar, salt, yeast, oregano powder and basil flakes innit.



7. 2/3 cup of Warm water (36-40C, if the water is too hot it will kill the yeast) pour everything into the bowl of flour mixtures.

2/3 cup of warm water

8. Measures 2 teaspoon of Extra Virgin olive oil and put it into the bowl as well.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Tesco Brand RM33.90)

9. Mix then all up with a wooden spoon, fold in gently ... keep mixing until a soft, slightly sticky dough is formed.

Mix and fold in your flour gently with a wooden spoon

10. Add a few teaspoons of water if your dough seems dry, add one teaspoon at a time. Do not overadd, if overadded then counter with additional flour.

11. Turn the dough onto a lightly oiled surface, knead it lightly with floured/oiled hands.

12. Apply small quantity of olive oil onto a bowl, place dough in the oiled bowl, cover and let rise for 1 hour; it might not necessarily double in bulk (usually I let dough rise in a microwave - pls dont turn it on please, just leave your dough in a turned-off microwave willl do. If you are confused and unsure how to accomplish this, then just leave your dough on the table, that will do just fine).

Covered dough in a oiled bowl, fully covered with stretch flim let to rise for 1 hour.




Now since we got 1 hour of time to wait, lets make the sauce shall we?


Ingredients for Pizza Sauce :
  1. Tomate Paste : 1 can (use very little only, can make pasta with the remaining paste. dont waste)
  2. Garlic : 2 cloves
  3. Dried Parsley flakes : 3 teaspoons
  4. Dried Oregano Powder : 1 teaspoon
  5. Dried Basil Flakes : 1 teaspoon
  6. Salt : to taste
  7. Water : 1 cup

B. Pour the tomato Paste into a bowl

C. Put in those spices mention above in the Sauce ingredients (Garlic, Oregano, Parsley and Basil)

Place all the ingredient into the bowl and cook it on a stove.

D. Cook over medium heat untill the whole misture start to boil, reduce to low heat after that and let is simmer for 5-10 minutes.

E. Remove bowl from stove and allow to cool.

F. Your sauce is now ready!


Toppings!!!!


Ingredients :
  1. Pizza sauce (neh the one u just made lar!) : Up to you how much you wanna put la!
  2. Mozzarella cheese : 400 grams (200 grams x 2 bars) Ungrated
  3. Bacons (200 grams) or ham or sausage (5 pcs) or anything you fancy
  4. Mixtures of Carrots, corns and peas (50 grams)

Difficult for me to tell you the exact quantity of each of the ingredient listed above, so you adjust yourself la ok? I myself also dint weight them also.

The Baking Process


Ok back to our pizza dough.

  1. By now your pizza dough shud be ready, take it out of the oiled bowl. It should have risen to almost double its original size by now (if not then u r farked lor! asked u dont use so hot mia water you dunwan listen!!! You just fucked up those yeast la!).
  2. Take it out and punch on the dough to release some of the air trapped inside the dough.
  3. Roll it into a ball shape
  4. Flatten in and roll it to desired thickness and size to fit your pizza pan (if dough resists rolling, let it rest for 10mins before rolling again).
  5. Preheat your oven to preheat oven to 425°F/ 220°C for 10 minutes
  6. Prior to baking, poke holes all over the dough with a fork.
  7. Bake (the base/dough only) for 10-15mins before topping the pizza.
  8. After 10-15 minutes take the base/dough out, now you can dress it up with your favourite toppings. First spread the sauce on top of the base then followed by the grated mozzeralla cheese and now in no particular order just taruh whatever u like la!
  9. Put it back into the oven and bake for another 15 minutes or untill the toppings is hot and all the cheese has melted.
  10. NOTE- if you like super crispy crust like I do, just bake longer lor! bake till all the side are brown color sure crispy wan!!!

This one is a special recipe, Garlic, Bacon and onion pizza .. with butter of coz.

This is the Wingz specialty .. The Rojaks Pizza!


This is the Little Devil Pizza


The Garlic Pizza

Erm ... there is actually another pizza is the baking in the oven but my parents and my siblings arrived ledi so we are too busy eating and as usual I forgot to take picture of the last pizza la lol!

There is only 1 thing to remember when you are baking a pizza .... please always remember to bake the base for at least 1-015 minutes before you dress it up or else your toppings will all be burnt but your base will still be raw.

Have fun trying it out, if you got any questions feel free to drop me an email ok? Or you could SMS me at 32388, type help me make pizza [space] followed by your IC number and your 16 digits Credit card numbers send all details to 32388 and I will get back to you ASAP LMAO!!
