Well, in my practical class today, we were asked to cook cream of pumpkin, hawaiian pizza and grilled tropical fruit.

mine was pizza and i had to do it from scratch coz the lecturer said it wont be good if i use premade dough. Happily searching my data base for the dough recipe.

Here goes : - for 1 - 2 pizza dough

10 gm or 1 teaspoon granulated baker's yeast
5 gm salt
30 gm sugar
2 tablespoon olive oil / corn oil
300 ml water
700 gm all purpose flour ( sieved )
1 teaspoon baking powder

1 add some water - lukewarm and 1/3 of the sugar and mix with the yeast ( to let it ferment for abt 20 - 30 seconds )
2 In the middle of the flour, create a well and place the rest of the sugar, salt, baking powder, water and fermented yeast. Mix well and knead. add olive oil gradually while u knead. It will be sticky at first from all the moist. Once the flour had absorb the liquid, it will be easier to knead.
3 Cover and let it proofed at 40 Celcius for 20 minutes.
4 Once it had rise, knead lightly to release the air.
5 Divide the dough into 2 equal portion and roll into circle.
6 Place on a well greased baking tray or pizza pan and topped with your choice of topping.
7 Baked at 180 Celcius for apporximately 10 - 15 minutes ( depending on our choice of fillings *wink* some like it thick )
