Vegetarians Nightmare Pizza

I thought I’d share my recipe for my infamous pizza. It’s really easy and fun to make and it’s the most delicious pizza. It’s better then those horrible store-bought frozen pizzas. This will be enough for two to three people.

First the dough:

  • 200 gr of flower (not self rising flower)
  • 125 ml of water
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 gr bakingpowder
  • 5 gr herbamare seasoning

Put the flower into a mixing bowl or foodprocessor. Add the olive oil, the bakingpowder, the seasoning and half of the water. Mix it gently and add water just bits at a time. When the dough forms a nice ball that’s not too sticky it’s done. Don’t worry if you didn’t add all the water. If the dough is a bit sticky, add a bit more flower.

When the weather’s nice outside I place the dough in a glass bowl, with cling film over the top, on the grass in the sun for around 45 minutes. When it’s cold or shady I’ll preheat the oven at 90° Celsius. Place the glass bowl in the oven (aluminium foil on top, as I have no idea if cling film can go in the oven) and heat it for 3 minutes. Turn off the oven and let the dough rest for 20 minutes. Now it’s ready for the next stage.

Take the tray you want to use for your pizza. I use a huge round earthenware tray for this (∅ 40 cm). Rub it with olive oil (or butter). Roll the risen dough really flat and place it in the tray. Push the dough into the corners so it rises up a bit around the rim. It now needs to rise again. And again, there are two ways. Either place it outside in a see-through bin liner for 45 minutes or preheat the oven again on 90° Celsius and put it in (with aluminium foil) for 3 minutes. Turn the oven off and let it rest for another 20 minutes.

Your dough is now ready.

 

In the time your dough is rising you can get all the other ingredients ready. You need:

  • 700 gr chickenbreast in cubes
  • 10 gr of piripiri seasoning
  • Pizza sauce
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 6 slices of ham
  • 6 slices of salami
  • grated cheese
  • pineapple pieces
  • Little bit of olive oil

First make a paste of the olive oil and the pirpiri seasoning. Put in the chickenbreast cubes and leave it for at least 2 hours. If your chicken is still frozen, make sure you’ll leave it to marinade even longer. (tip: I slice the chicken into cubes when it’s still half frozen. This way it’s much easier to slice. But you need a VERY sharp knife to do this!) Fry them til there just about done.

Put the pizza sauce onto the waiting dough. Put as much on it as you like. Then slice the bacon, ham and salami in half and place them on the pizza. Put the fried chicken over the top and make sure to distribute it evenly around the whole pizza. Put the grated cheese over the top and place the pineapple  on the grated cheese. Again, put as much on it as you like.

Put the whole thing into a pre0heated oven on 175° Celsius for 30 minutes. Enjoy your Vegetarians Nightmare!

 

Note: I’m not responsible for any over-eating, nor am I responsible for never wanting another pizza again! 😉

    You need some sort of leavening. Baking pwoder can be substituted with other pantry ingredients. Keeping in mind that a chemical rise dough is a biscuit dough (like UNO thick crust). You can make a biscuit dough with baking soda and cream of tartar or baking soda and buttermilk.If you have none of these, then all you can make is a unleavened bread and it is not the best base for a pizza but it can be done. Here’s what to do if you do not have the aboveMake the dough as you would for pizza but with twice the oil.Roll out unleavened dough very thin, (1/8 ) to make a cracker type crust, no larger than a dinner plate, for strength, since they’re thin.. Prick the crust all over with a fork, lay out on an oiled cookie sheet with cornmeal to stop sticking.Precook a little in a 300degree oven til set but not brown,Cover with toppings and bake in a 400F oven til toppings are brown.
