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 needed 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 try it 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
I went ahead and blended all the ingredients and kneaded the dough for about 45 seconds in the food processor.
While the dough rose until it doubles in size, which was about two hours, I prepared the sauce and toppings.
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
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 vegetables 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
- 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.
