Chorizo Stuffed Crust Pizza

I have never been a fan of pizzas, though my family used to eat them once a fortnight when i was younger. The main reason was probably because i always found the ones from Pizza Hut too oily and heavy and since then, my impression of pizza was always bad. You must asking 'then why are you blogging about a pizza recipe??' Well well...it all started when we decided to make pizza for a friend's farewell and somehow...mysteriously...it turned out quite yummy and nice. The crust wasn't oily at all (in fact, it was crispy) and i didn't feel as if i had just eaten a whole lump of greasy stuff. Anyways, the recipe is not hard but the dough can be time consuming.

Pizza Dough Recipe

- 2 1/4 cup of all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- 1/2 tsp instant yeast
- 3/4 cup of lukewarm water (85 - 90C)
- 3 tbsp of olive oil

Toppings

- tomato paste
- italian herbs
- chorizo (to your liking)
- grated mozzarella cheese

Method of preparation

1. Mix the all-purpose flour, salt, instant yeast and water
2. Add the olive oil and start kneading until it forms a nice and smooth dough (you might need extra flour or water)
3. Divide into 2 portions (this recipe allows you to make 2 pizza doughs)
4. Coat each dough with olive oil and put them each in an oiled bowl. Cover with plastic and let it sit in room temperature until it doubles in size (~1 hour)
5. Sprinkle the table surface with flour and using a rolling pin roll the dough out
6. Roll until the pizza dough is larger than the pizza pan by 1.5 inches
7. Put the pizza dough on the pizza pan
8. Put mozzarella cheese around the outer edge of the pizza dough and roll the extra dough that is hanging out of the pizza pan inwards to form a crust.
9. Spread tomato base and add some herbs
10. Add the chorizo and cover with mozzarella cheese
11. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes at 200C
12. Cool it down, slice it and...SERVE!
