Black Gold Pizza

[Backdated to early Sep.] During one of my off days, I decided to make pizza for our dinner. Wanting to make something special, I tried the black gold pizza from "Pockets of Happiness" by Chef Judy, owner of Creative Culinaire. The pizza turns out to be soft and nice. There was a slight hint of charcoal taste on the palate after eating. Nice for a change.
Recipe for Black Gold Pizzas, modified from "Pockets of Happiness" by Judy Koh.
Makes two 9" Pizzas

Ingredients:
190g Plain flour
60g Bread flour
50g Wholemeal flour
8g Charcoal powder
4g Instant yeast
4g Sea salt
4g Fine sugar
180g Water
20g Olive oil

For topping: (you may add anything you like)
2 tbsp Olive oil
2 tbsp mayonnaise
20 slices of Cheddar cheese (half should suffice. My children like it cheesy!)
1 punnet Cherry tomatoes, sliced half
1 punnet White button mushrooms (using this will cause the pizza to be watery. Avoid this if you like it dry and cheesy. Mine turned creamy, but we liked it! :p)
Some fresh dills

Method:

  1. Knead all the ingredients for the dough together in a mixer till a smooth and developed dough is formed.
  2. Round the dough, cover and allow it to ferment for about 1 hour before punching the dough down and stretching it to fit into a 9" pizza pan.
  3. Brush the surface with olive oil, spread the mayonnaise on it and arrange the cheese, tomatoes and mushrooms nicely.
  4. Topped them up with the remaining cheese.
  5. Proof for another 15mins before baking in a preheated oven at 200C for about 15mins or until cooked.

You should try this, Wendy. Put up to 10g of charcoal powder if you prefer it to have more charcoal taste.

Yeah, my charcoal powder has been sitting there in the cupboard for ages! Perhaps I should make bread or pizza like you. My only worry is my kids will refuse to eat it.  but pizza is worth a try since that's their favorite! Lol!

My children looked at the colour and said "yucks!" But when they tried it, they said very nice! Luckily they still try it! LOL!

Thanks Reese! It's a good change from the usual pizza base. You should try it too! The golden cheese colour looked good on the black base! LOL
