Homemade BBQ Chicken Pizza

I have longed for a homemade pizza for a long, long time. The pizza pan and cutter which I bought 'months' ago have been lying in my kitchen drawer and finally I have decided to put them to good use. So yes...pizza was what we had for dinner tonight.

For the pizza dough, I copied
Terri's recipe so do check her blog for the recipe. The recipe calls for dry yeast and do note that it is called "Ibu Roti" in Malay. It took me a few phone calls to some famous bakers around town to finally confirm that it's yeast. Although my pizza dough turned out very well but sadly, despite a few attempts, it didn't turn out round like it should be. Finally I gave up! Who cares as long as it turn out tasty, right? For the base, I have used Heinz BBQ sauce.

For the fillings, I used two pieces of chicken maryland which I have marinated with some BBQ sauce, pepper and sugar; pan-fried and cut into small pieces. Also added some sliced white button mushrooms, sliced red capsicum, sliced onion and canned pineapple (well drained). And not forgetting shaved Mozarella and Cheddar cheeses (not in the picture).

I had a great time assembling all the condiments on the dough and am so proud with my masterpiece......tada....

Bake in the oven at 200 degree Celcius for about 10 mins or until the dough turns golden brown. The end result...once again.....tada.....

It turned out a bit moist, must be either the mushroom or the chicken which I didn't drain all the juices away. However, Hubby and Papa said they loved it moist; they claimed that it was juicy! Ahem...pizza is not supposed to be juicy!! It was tasty nonetheless....I ended up baking 2 large pizza and all was left in the microwave are 4 tiny pieces which I don't think will last too long. Hubby is already eyeing it.

It's not exactly cheap to do your own pizza considering the Heinz BBQ sauce, olive oil, shaved mozzarella and cheddar cheese easily costs me RM50. But it was the end result which was priceless. My next pizza attempt? Peking Duck Pizza!!!

Hazza said...

Hi.. I am still around. Blog updated, but been preocuppied with Euro2008! Well done Spain!

Lovely pizza! Like you said, cheaper to buy sometimes. Didnt know you can get fresh button mushrooms in Malaysia. Must be expensive.

Precious Pea said...

Hubby: Once in a while is ok, sekali you jelak. Hehe...next time i make your fav seafood with thousand island base ok?

NJoe: I think i need to perfect my skill in making a round pizza before i can serve it to my guests. Hehe.

jackson: Pork trotter pizza? Use black vinegar as base?? Hmm..i hope with the cheese added, no one end up food poisoning after that. You wanna be the guinea pig?

hazza: White button mushrooms are expensive here but they do taste good in pizza. Nothing compares to the canned version. Now that euro2008 is over...so back to blogging soon?

J2Kfm said...

CUMI & CIKI said...

dammit woman... the girl CAN COOK! lol.. great job (envy) ;D

tigerfish said...

Peking Duck sounds good! I wonder if the pineapple will go well with Peking Duck. I'm a sucker of pineapples when it comes to pizza :D

Precious Pea said...

j2kfm: Wahh! Hang on! Cool down! Hahaha..seems like you getting all excited. Ok..your suggestions noted. I shall do one super non-halal pizza!

cumi & ciki: LOL!! Pizza is really easy to make so no big deal la..hehehe.

tigerfish: You are the same as my hubby as he go crazy over pineapple. He requested for a pizza with pineapple only.

Nic (KHKL) said...

i made something similar...but for the crust, i just use half of a pita bread...hehehe, i lazy hor?

then again, i cook my own tomato base. ;)

why only got pea's name one...*pumpkin frowns*..haha!

mama bok said...

Not cheap .. but homemade definitely better .. healthier too.. :)

mimid3vils said...

Last time when I made my pizza, my ingredients were overflow too...too greedy :P

Precious Pea said...

nic: Ooo...good idea to use pita bread..minus all the hassle of making own dough. Err...not enuff space to write pumpkin. Next attempt i will draw a pumpkin.

mamabok: True..at least its clean and fresh.

mimid3vils: Haha...well, if make at home of course must eat till 'kau kau'.

Live2Talk said...

The PP (Pea Pizza) looks more toppings than dough :) good try and fully utilize that oven of yours!

lil'Chomel said...

Homecook == no msg, more 'liao' (toppings), more tlc... hehehe. Agree with you... priceless. Can't wait for your seafood pizza... can imagine crabs and prawns on it!

Terri @ A Daily Obsession said...

ivy, what wasn't right with the dough? did u let the dough proof in the fridge overnight? tt'll make it easier to handle.still, ur pizza looks delicious.

♥ ♡ Alvin ♡ ♥ said...

your self made pizza really 'hou keng' All pizza shop lost to you already! They can't made it with so generous ingredient!

New Kid on the Blog said...

wow, you pizza can compete with Pizza Hut leh!!! :)

Shattered_Dream said...

Out of curiousity, is the base of the pizza really cook??

Wandering Chopsticks said...

Haha! Too funny that your husband liked it b/c it was "juicy." I don't know how much RM50 is but I remember how expensive western food was in Vietnam. By the end of the summer, I wanted a burger and fries so bad.

Peb from My Simple Kitchen said...

Thks for the recipe. I have been meaning to make my own pizza. One of the "in the near future" cooking recipes. Wish me luck. Also I just submitted an entry fro the Weekend Wokking after seeing yr entry but me last minute and got the dates mixed up....I was too late, not sure if they will accept..

Cynthia said...

Gourmet pizza! I love! Great job!

Precious Pea said...

live2talk: Homemade pizza sure must be loaded with ingredients only 'syiok'!

lil'chomel: Yummy..crabs pizza should be good hor? Thinking what sauces should i put as the base.

terri: The pizza dough was ok although I left it for just 2 hours. Only problem is that, i couldn't get the perfect round shape.

alvin: Hahahaha! Yalor..if pizza shops give that much ingredient...sure make a big loss!

nkotb: Thank you...so flattering to hear that. Ermm...still need to perfect the shape. Mine was so odd shape.

shattered dreams: Yes, it was thoroughly cooked. You can see from my first picture that my pizza pan has got small holes all over. My friend told me it's better to get those kind of pizza pan.

wandering chopsticks: RM50 would be around USD15 and bear in mind that only for the olive oil, bbq sauce, cheddar and mozzarella. So dining out actually not that expensive although I always used to complain about overpriced pizza. Yes, I heard food in Vietnam, especially in decent looking restaurant not cheap. But i would really really love to try the authentic Pho in Viet to see if it's the same as those i eat here.

peb: Do try making your own pizza. Quite fun actually when you get to decorate your own pizza. Cool! Looking forward to your potato recipe. Did the host reply to you?

cynthia: Thank you! *grin*

Terri @ A Daily Obsession said...

ah, if u leave the dough for 24 to 48 hours in the fridge (it will rise but still ok) the gluten in the flour will relax n it'll be easier to roll. u r right tt it isn't cheap to make at home. also, if u r making thin-crust pizza, don't overload on the toppings :0 it's typical of us to ga lieu but doesn't work with pizzas, esp if u use the paddle to shove the pizza into the oven like they do in the pizza parlors.

Precious Pea said...

terri: OK, next time i will leave it overnight for better result. Haha..yalor..tend to be greedy and Hubby kept asking me to 'add somemore pineapple, add more pineapple, more more more". Too much liew, hard to cut also.
