Thin Crust Pizza Recipe

This pizza is done by me and my man ♥ ❤ We love pizza~ but not pizza hut.. haha.. Not really like the pizza there with thick thick bread and super thin layer of the topping. If Domino's is available, we always choose domino to eat.
Been eating pizza for so long time but never thought of DIY it~ until the day we having potluck party at some relatives house, one of the cousin makes pizza! It seems like not so hard right... And so we decided to give it a try~ ^^

 Here's the ingredient for the pizza dough (2 x 11 inches pizza for thin crust)~ After we research for awhile on Google, this is the easiest recipe that we can get. Not to say easy but is simple ingredient that we can easily get in any supermarket :)

 All the ingredient and tools~ you can see... the yeast I'm using was the instant yeast from Kijang brand.

 Normal 'tepung gandum' is the only choice in the super market.

 This is the olive oil I'm using, choose this one just because only this is available in small bottle in my supermarket. Because we only need to use a little of this, so I bought a small bottle.

 This is how the yeast look like... yuck.. don't know why I felt disgusting!


STEPS (for the pizza dough):
1. Add sugar into the luke warm water you prepared.
2. Then add in instant dried yeast.
3. Just put it there and wait for approximately 15 minutes until all the yeast "wake up"

 The mixture

 After 8 minutes

 After 12 minutes... you can see this is ready when all the entire dried yeast had been transform.

4. Now mix in olive oil and salt.
5. Then add in all the baking flour and mix in the bowl.

 I used a spatula to slightly mixed it when it's still powder and water in the mixture.

 My man is hardly mixing the dough in the bowl ~_~

OK! when it came to this form, you can take it out and knead it with hands~ make sure you clean your hand! 
Another thing is, you can knead on your table(which is clean, other wise you're going to clean the table with your pizza dough). If you find it difficult that you did not had a clean surface, you can buy a silicon mat. Which you can wash easily and it can stay on the table in place while you're kneading.

6. Spread a thin layer of flour on your kneading surface before you put on your dough to prevent the dough from sticking.
7. Knead the dough until smooth and elastic for approximately 10 minutes.

Knead knead knead~ we not yet buy a silicon mat that time... so we knead on a baking paper. its super hard because the paper keep running place, need another person to hold it tight.

8. Put it back into the bowl just now and cover it up with plastic wrap and let it wait for 30 minutes in room temperature.

While waiting for the pizza dough to raise, we prepare the toppings! 
Today I'm gonna do Hawaiian Bacon Sausage and Seafood Delight with Onions! *simply name it*

9. Prepare your tomato paste.

 I bought this chopped tomatoes(but regret). I should direct buy the spaghetti tomato sauce from Prego.

 It looks like this when open up. The chopped tomato was to big for spreading on a pizza. And it taste sour.

 I use a spoon to press all the chopped tomatoes into paste. Then add in sugar, salt, pepper and some basin flakes. Add all these seasoning and taste it until you get the taste you like.

10. Prepare your cheese.

I'm using this pizza plus that already mix all the cheese for pizza :)
NICE! but Expensive... I guess this is the most expensive ingredient of making pizza huh?

11. Prepare your toppings.

 Cut sausage into pieces.

 Cut ham into smaller pieces.

 I use a canned pineapple. Just open up and cut into smaller pieces.

 Then also cut the onion, crab stick and bacon. Open up the tuna.

 After all the cutting, cook all the meat first before put into bake.

All the ingredient for topping is ready... now check on the dough and carry on~

12. After 30 minutes, check on your dough... it will be expend to about 3 times bigger than the previous one.

13. Take it out and separate into 2 equal size.
14. Use your rolling pins to roll the dough into a thin big circle shape.

 15. Wet your entire pizza pan with olive oil so that the pizza won't be sticking on the pan when you serve it out from oven.
16. Put on the pizza dough you rolls just now, and try to press the pizza with your 2 thumbs so that the pizza can go thinner and bigger.

17. Take a folk and make holes on the pizza dough.
18. Preheat oven to 200ºC.
19. Spread on tomato paste.
20. Second layer should be a thin later of cheese to hold the ingredient on the dough.
21. Then all the toppings.
22. Last layer also a full layer of cheese~ I love cheese so much! so I put MANY of it ^^
23. Lastly put into oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes(the time depend on your pizza thickness) with temperature 200ºC until you saw the all the cheese has melted and the pizza dough become slightly brown color.

DINGGGG!!!! PizZa is DonE~

 Can you see all the CHEESE~~~~ Aww... I'm hungry!!!
