Thai Zucchini Chicken Pizza

Thai Zucchini Chicken Pizza

*
Makes 2 medium pizzas

Pizza Crust

Proofing the Yeast:

*1 cup warm Water

*1 tablespoon Dry Active Yeast

*2 teaspoon Sugar, food for the yeast

In a small bowl add the above ingredients, let sit until bubbly.

Whisk together:

*1/2 teaspoon Salt

*1 teaspoon Garlic Powder

*2 cups Bread Flour, more if needed

Add:

*1 tablespoon Extra Light Olive Oil

Combine the above wet and dry ingredients and knead into a soft ball.  (Let the dough rise while you make the Thai sauce.)

*

Roll out soft ball dough into a circle, until right size for your pizza pan. I used an extra-large pizza Pan. I like to use a pizza pan that has holes in the bottom and spray well with cooking spray. (You can also use a very small amount of corn meal on the bottom of pizza pan to help with sticking. )

Note: Fold over the edge of the pizza if you like a thick Crust and if using a un-perforated  pizza pan poke whole marks in dough with a fork to allow for air flow.

Bake the pizza crust at 500*F for 5 minutes, then remove pizza crust from the oven adding the toppings and bake another 10 minutes.
