Pizza: Recipe & photos

Rise and shine! I'm in a superbly good mood today, so no one is gonna spoil it. But the sad thing is, I'm gonna start school again tomorrow! Omo! I don't want! T.T Holidays are going to be over now. Phew, how much I will miss you Mr Holiday. We won't be meeting again until two months later! Oh gosh gosh gosh. And I have an major exam to sit during October. It's now mid-August. Oh. my. God. 1 and a half months to go. This. is. crazy.

No time to say, "Chillax guys"
No time to wake up at 2 am and watch YouTube videos
No time to bake frequently
No time to just listen to songs and idle along
I just have no time.

Kay, before my school mode is on, let me fill up these few hours before school reopens with baking. Good idea? Jjang! (Korean word for 'great!') I'm not Korean. I'm Chinese. Wait, what does that have to do with this? Gahh, never mine I'll just continue with my pizza story.

So.. yesterday I did pizzas and the last piece was my breakfast today. Sob sob. So long pizza, we'll meet again. This is my second try and it was far much better than the first try. Well, maybe it's because I used different dough recipe, home made pizza sauce and more expensive cheese. Yeah, that should be the reasons. Now, go to the topic!

This pizza dough or pizza base is the ideal one for me. Very soft. White. Irresistible. 

300gm of flour (superfine flour will do much greater results)
190ml of warm water
1tsp of dry yeast
Pinches of sugar
30ml of oil
1/2tsp of salt

1. Mix yeast and the sugar with the warm water. Stir it slightly and let it aside for about 3-5 minutes.
2. Place the flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Make a hole inside it and pour the yeast mixture and also the oil. Then, start mixing the mixture until it becomes a dough! (If you have a machine, better use it with the dough hook. This trick requires no effort at all.)
3. Grease a big bowl using oil and transfer the dough in it. Brush the top of the dough with oil. (Since the bottom layer is covered with oil already.)
4. Cover with plastic wrap and let it aside for about one hour. It will double (or triple) its size.


Now that is just the pizza dough. Here is the pizza sauce recipe.

Tomato puree
Onions
Garlics
Oregano
Black pepper (grounded or powder type)
Salt

I didn't put any measurement because this is subjective type of food! You can put hundreds of onions or thousands of oregano leaves, I don't mind. But just think logic, okay. I had a tin of tomato puree. So I chopped an onion and a few cloves of garlic. I stewed them and added minced meat. This is optional, though. You can choose to not put it. Then, I pour the tomato puree in and let it boil for a little while. I add salt, some oregano and black pepper. When it is done, I just let it cool before transferring it into a small glass bottle (for future use too).

So, you got the directions right? It's very simple and yet satisfying. Yum yummy. Papa, Mummy and I couldn't stop eating and that pizza resulted as our dinner. I think I did a great job. We no longer have to buy pizzas from shop 'cause now I can make my home made pizza! Which I do think that there's no differences between home-made and bought-from-shop pizzas.

Gotta start doing my home work though! I've got seven essays to be copied! OMG! 救命啊! But, I even thought of doing steamed moist chocolate cake this evening. *saliva keeps dropping 

Watch out for more recipes! And.. have a good Saturday!

My blog changed itself again. Always. As ever. Well, I need something fresh to keep my blog likeable, right? This capture below is the old look. Plain. White. Transparent. Boring.

Old look. Plain. White. Transparent. Boring.

And this time I did my own pizza sauce! Gotta post about the recipe tomorrow, I guess. I'm just too tired. Gonna sleep now. Good night! God bless.

Random

My plan to renovate this blog failed as I don't have enough privacy. Privacy? Ehem. Hihi. I wanted to do something different. Than what I usually do. Just wait until tomorrow.. perhaps. Wink wink. 

By the way, I'm so bored. But at least I did something useful. I studied in the morning and surfed the Internet till now. Great. You see, you have to do something useful then you can finally relax with no worries. This is a good holiday plan. Ha-ha. *munching homemade choco chip cookies

And I finally found out how to type Chinese in my computer! So so so happy. Testing... 真高兴啊!Yeah, this is exactly how I feel. I bet Papa's going to be happy. Well, he must be glad that his daughter is trying to make an effort to learn Mandarin! Since I'm a Chinese, I need to learn it somehow. It's just that mine isn't very good because I'm enrolled in national education. Which uses English and Bahasa Melayu. No Chinese. 

I've been listening to these few Chinese songs too like, Baby Don't Cry and 3.6.5 by EXO-M. Their music is great. There are also Korean versions by EXO-K. Anyways, EXO is just so awesome. 

A few lines from Baby Don't Cry: 

Baby don't cry tonight
但黑夜再次亮起来
Baby don't cry tonight
就当作没发生过一样
你永远都不会化成像泡沫一样
难道你不知道吗
So baby don't cry cry
我的爱守护你不分开

Things went quite well except that my head suddenly ache again. What the heck? Grr. Please pray for me. 

P/S: Can't wait for the grand renovation plan!

Recovery

Phew. It is holidays currently. My elder sister was here for about one week before she finally flew off to KL back just now. I feel so tired. And sick too. I had fever and serious headache for four days. Never felt this painful before. But it's now gone. Thanks to my next-door doctor. My throat is now feeling itchy. Guess it's because of Moms virus infecting me. Haha.

So there's another week for me to enjoy my holidays before another term starts. However I still have extra classes for three days. Great. Grr. Gonna use all this time left to do things that I love. Which are; listening to music, watching movies, downloading videos, surfing Internet and daydreaming. Life never seems so good.

Talking about recovery, I decided to change my blog's look. Maybe tomorrow. Yeah. Tonight is kinda too late. I need to sleep. Hopefully it's gonna be great. Well I just need something fresh to encourage me to keep writing, right? A kiss before going to sleep, muah. Nite then. :)
