Chicken and Chargrilled Pepper Homemade Pizza


I'm unable to wax lyrical about the art of pizzas and pizza making in general, having not sampled the range out there to have a good judgement of what constitutes 'good', after all there are infinite categrories, thin-crust Italian, variations amongst the Italian-type crust, the American adaptations, inter-regional varities including the famous Chicago 'pie', deep pan, fast food, gourmet...In anycase, I would reccomend the wisdom of
http://www.sliceny.com/ SliceNY has reviews by the slice and I'll definitely be consulting it as a resource for a pizza safari in New York in the future. On to the homemade bit; the dough recipe was adapted from something I found at Epicurious, I halved the ingredients to make just one thin-crust pizza, around 15 inches.

  • 220 grams flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon active dried yeast
  • 200 ml warm water
  • salt
  • italian herbs/oregano

Knead until elastic and leave to rise for 40 minutes with a smear of olive oil, then press out with fingertips, or a rolling pin.

Tomato sauce was a simmered combination of chopped plum tomatoes, garlic, 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper in a pot until thick and spreadable.

Toppings of chicken breast fillet in strips, onion, mozarella and chargrilled red pepper.. Admiteddly, the mozzarella could've, should've been of better quality, but I think the supermarket version worked jsut as well but with a different melting point in texture and mouthfeel. It came out tasty, with a crips base and a foldable crumb.

Vegetables are great, but the Heart Start Defibrillator is better (At saving your life, that is ;) ).
