Makes:                     4 small or 2 large pizza

Preparation time:  40 minutes + 1.5 hours for raising the dough

Cooking time:          30 minutes

 

 

Ingredients:

Pizza dough:

250g high-grade flour plus extra for dusting

1 tsp white sugar 

1 Tbsp dry yeast

1/4 tsp salt

1 Tbsp olive oil

125ml (1/2 cup) lukewarm water

1/2 tsp squid ink for colouring

 

Teriyaki Chicken:

300g chicken thighs, cut into strips

25 g brown sugar

50ml soy sauce

50ml cooking sake

50ml mirin

2 Tbsp flour to dust 

Oil to cook

 

Other ingredients to make 4 small pizzas:

1 red onion, sliced

4 Tbsp Japanese mayonnaise

4 Tbsp corn kernels

100g mozzarella cheese, grated

1 fresh avocados – remove skin, stone and cut into cubes

1/2 Nori sheet – shredded with scissors

 

Method:

To make dough: 

    1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, dry yeast and salt. Slowly add oil and lukewarm water, stirring until the mixture comes together roughly. On a lightly floured bench, knead the dough until soft and smooth (takes approx 10 mins).
    1. Divide the dough into half with a knife. Place one half into an oiled bowl, cover with tea towel and set aside in a warm area for 1-1.5 hours or until doubled in size.  Add squid ink to the other half of the dough and knead for another 5 minutes until colour is spread evenly. Place the dough into an oiled bowl, cover and set aside in a warm area. 

To make Teriyaki Chicken: 

    1. Mix sugar, soy sauce, mirin and cooking sake in a small pot and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 2 minutes.
    2. Heat oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Dust chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes. Turn and cook other side for another couple of minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Pour teriyaki sauce into the pan and cook until thickened and lightly caramelised. Remove from heat and cool. 

To assemble: 

    1. Pre heat oven to 200 degrees.
    1. Divide the dough into 4pc (2 white and 2 black) and roll each into a ball. On a lightly floured bench, roll out one ball flat so it’s roughly 20cm diameter. Place onto an oiled stainless plate or lined oven tray. 
    1. Pierce it with a fork (this will prevent it from rising during cooking), spread 1 Tbsp of mayonnaise and add red onion and corn kernels. Place teriyaki chicken on top and drizzle sauces. Add chopped avocado, sprinkle grated cheese on top and repeat this to make three more small pizzas. 
    1. Bake for 15-17 minutes (for small pizza) you might need to cook for a bit longer if you are making a large pizza. 
    1. Remove from oven, sprinkle shredded nori and serve!
