Curry Pan Pizza

A curry pizza story of red curry seasoning base

I had some red curry seasoning base, can of Tuna, mix of various veggies that I had to use up in the fridge and I was in need of pizza lunch, but not from a restaurant. I found this awesome Italian pizza dough recipe on Youtube, that I could make easily and decided to give it a try with my own curry twist.

Italian Pizza Dough

Prep time : 10 minutes ( using food processor )

  • 6 cups of bread flour
  • 2 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of active dry yeast
  • Water

I went ahead and blended all the ingredient and kneaded the dough about 45 seconds in food processor .

while the dough rises until double in size, which was about two hours, I prepared the sauce and toppings.

Sauce

Prep time : half an hour

I made a smooth and Tuna curry flavored sauce by blending Tuna, curry powders and coconut cream.

  • One can of yellow fin tuna in oil
  • One teaspoon of black curry powder
  • One teaspoon of red curry paste
  • One tablespoon of coconut cream

Toppings

I also made a coconut sambal by mixing curry seasoning base and other ingredients by hand until well combined like mom used to do. Also I added finely chopped vegetable to my sambal and finished it with lime juice. It was perfect for two pizzas.

  • Cup of scraped coconut
  • Tablespoon of red curry seasoning
  • Teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • Teaspoon of black pepper
  • Juice of a lime
  • Sliced red onion

Optional toppings

  • Finely chopped red and yellow bell pepper
  • Handful of Arugula
  • BBQ pork ribs (optional)
  • finely sliced red onions

Last but not least I sliced fresh mozzarella cheese and laid out ready to go.

By now the dough had risen to double. I turned it to oiled surface and divided in to eight dough balls. Since I was only making two pizzas, I froze remaining six dough balls in zip tight bags.

In a oiled well seasoned cast iron skillet, I formed the pizza bread by pushing and pulling the dough to corners. I made sure I saved as much air as possible that was inside and push it towards corners. Oven was set to pre heat at 460 degrees Fahrenheit. I covered the pizza bread with a cling film and let it rise another two hours . Once I was happy with how well it has risen, I went ahead to add my toppings. After spreading a thin layer of sauce and adding my toppings, I cooked the pizza in over for 15 to 20 minuets and cheese is melted and bread is crusty.

I served my pizza creation with drizzle of olive oil on top. That was one flavorful lunch and my family loved it ! I hope you will too.
