Hamemade Pizza (bread dough)

I have lots of bread flour left in the fridge, after first attempt for bread making few weeks ago. Therefore, I am using bread dough to make this Pizza. At first, the dough went really sticky. But, i never give up this time, and try to keep kneading for a longer period. The original recipe from Cooking Crave requires only 2-3 mins of kneading, but i couldn't get it to form a ball. So, i continue for about 30mins, and it slowly become very soft! When i tear a bit, i could see it never break easily, like a piece of Mask? Haa! I think my last attempt to bread didn't get soft enough, just because i never knead enough. Now, i have the motivation to start my bread making journey again.... heee!

I am using Prego pasta sause as in picture (1/2 tin), and fry with dice onions. My toppings include hot dog with cheese, ham, canned pineapples, sliced tomato and grated Mozzarella Cheese.

Recipes from Cooking Crave
Pizza Dough:
Makes one 7" pizza
100 g bread flour
1 tsp instant yeast
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
67ml warm milk (110f/43c)
27ml warm water (110f/43c)
1 tbsp olive oil/corn oil

Sieve flour and yeast in a bowl. Add in sugar, salt and set aside.In another smaller bowl mix milk, water and olive oil. Pour it to the flour mixture slowly bit by bit and stir till it's well combined. The dough will be sticky at this time.In a flat surface, dust your hand with some flour and slightly knead the dough for 30 minutes until it can forms a ball.

Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with cling film and let it rest for 20 minutes.Remove the cling cover from the dough and punch the dough down so it deflates a bit. Roll it to the 7" round pan.Let the dough rest for 5 mins and brush it with some olive oil before we top it with topping.

Preparing the Pizza:
Preheat oven to 200c for at least 30 mins.
Brush the top of the dough with olive oil (to prevent it from getting soggy from the toppings).
Spoon on the tomato sauce , sprinkles with cheese and place your desired topping on pizza.
Cover it with more cheese on top, sprinkles some Parmesan cheese and some garlic salt on top. Bake in 200c for 15 minutes on greased pan.

  1. Great job dear!! This time you got it right. About the sticky dough, next time when you add in the liquid, add them in slowly and not at one time. Knead slowly, and when you feel it's already enough liquid stop it. Different brand of bread flour absorb different amount of water.. Have a nice day!
