Chopped mixed peppers
For Pizza Dough:
3 Cups Plain flour
1 Tsp Salt
1 Tbsp Chilli flakes
2 Tbsp Active yeast
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tsp Sugar
Pizza Dough :
Prepare the yeast by dissolving the sugar and yeast in 250 ml of warm water and leave to rest for 5 mins untill the yeast is active and frothy.
Mix the olive oil , chilli flakes and salt in the flour.
Combine the yeast solution along with some more water if required and knead the dough to a soft consistency. knead the dough at least for 5 mins. Leave it to rest in a warm and dry place for 30 mins.
The dough should be almost double the size after 30 mins. knead the dough again very well for 10 mins and leave it to rise for 30 mins again. Knead the dough again and divide the dough with a dough knife or a work top scraper into 2 or 3 portions according to the size of the pizzas you need. Use plain flour for dusting and start shaping the dough to form a circle using your fist. Use your knuckles to form a rounded circumference. Lift the pizza base on to the stone, mesh or the pan you are baking and prepare to start topping.
For a stuffed Crust Pizza:
Just use mozzarella cheese along the sides and fold the sides of the pizza. I used grated cheese , but the natural mozzarella balls can be handled more easily to wrap the edges.
For the Pizza Sauce:
Cook the tomatoes in 2 Tbsp of olive oil untill they are soft. Process the puree through a filter which will be used as a base for the sauce.
Heat a Tbsp of olive oil to a deep pan. Add the tomato puree, garlic powder, salt, pepper and thyme with a little water and mix well. Let it cook for 4 mins till all the flavours are released and leave it to cool.
Assembling the Pizza :
Spread the tomato sauce generously on the base and top it with really generous portions of chicken 65 , you can pick and avoid the curry leaves from the original recipe at this stage but do use them in the preparation of chicken 6 because , curry leaves is an important ingredient which ive the whole dish a beautiful flavour. Top it up with the other veges and grated cheese and bake for 15 mins till its done and serve piping hot!
