Chicken curry Pizza: A perfect day for Donna's Pizza

Chicken Curried Mango and Mozzarella Pizza

I am one of the few people that doesn't like pizza. For simple reason that its too good yet lavishly rich in calories. Not that I'm concerned with my weight but I feel guilty everytime I'm indulging this italian pie that has been internationally embraced as their own. Anywhere we go we'll definitely find pizza with the local flavor of its own.

When I have learned that Joey, of 80 Breakfasts is hosting the 17th edition of HHDD (Hay Hay its Donna Day) with pizza as a theme; I was really excited to join. Not only because I wanted to show my own "pizzanality" but simply because I was never familiar with Donna Hay. (I know where on earth did I come from :-) ) I have been hearing a lot good reviews about her, her foodstyling and her recipes. But never had really the opportunity to try. And now is the time I try it myself. A perfect day for Dhanggit to try Donna's Pizza.


Care for a bite?

Chicken Curried Mango and Mozzarella Pizza

Pizza Dough
(from Modern Classics I by Donna Hay page 186)
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • Pinch sugar
  • 2/3 cup (5 fl oz) warm water
  • 2 cups plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

- Place the yeast, sugar, and water in a bowl. Set aside until bubbles form. - Add the four, salt, and oil, and mix to form a smooth dough. Knead for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. - Place in a clean, oiled bowl, cover, and allow to stand in a warm place until it has doubled in size Makes one quantity.

For Pizza Sauce
8 ripe tomatoes
salt, pepper
thyme and rosemary
2 tbsps of olive oil
1 clove of garlic

In a boiling water drop the tomatoes and take them off after 3 seconds. Wash the tomatoes in running water. This procedure will help you take off the skin. Quarter each tomatoes and take off the seeds. In an electric mixer, start by throwing in the thyme and rosemary, then add the garlic. Put all the tomatoes, the olive oil ,salt and pepper and mix well.

Pizza Toppings
Chicken flakes meat from Roasted Chicken
1 small shallots
1 tsp of curry powder
salt
2 tbsps of olive oil
1 ripe mango
1 onion sliced
1 red pepper
1 ball of fresh Mozzarella

Sauté first the chicken flakes in olive oil with shallots for about 3 minutes. Then add the curry powder. Deglace the chicken with 1 tbsp of lemon juice, add a little bit of salt then turn of the fire. Spread over the pizza tomato sauce prepared over the pizza dough. Arrange the chicken flakes alternately with mango slices, onion, red pepper and mozzarella cheese. Drizzle it with olive oil and bake for 20 minutes at 200° Celsius.

Manggy, I agree with you ! i twas my original plan, a pizza with a creamy curry sauce. ;but when i checked my fridge, the coco-cream i had there was already 2 days out of its consumption date..i thought it was risky..so i just drop the idea and use a normal pizza tomato sauce instead ..i’ll probably try it next time
