Honey garlic chicken pizza

DSCF4859

Most fast food chains are really good at adapting their menus to suit the taste of the locals. Pizza hut is not an exception. To be honest, I have not had a single pizza from Pizza hut in Canada or the USA. I liked making my own or dominos. Dominos has these kick ass wings n awesome cheesy bread. MMMMMMmmmmmMMM

Well, I was talking to my sis a couple weeks ago and she was in the middle of making honey garlic pizza w mom (jealous!!). Honey garlic chicken pizza was the number 1 selling pizza in Brunei for many many years. Another huge favourite is the Tuna pizza. I made the tuna pizza before but Meep didn’t like it. Tuna salad on pizza was weird for him.

This recipe is my re-creation of the honey garlic chicken pizza available in Brunei. I have not had it in a long time but this does taste really close to what I remembered.

.

For the pizza dough – I used Jay’s signature pizza crust recipe. I have to say, this is pretty much exactly pizza hut’s pan pizza crust. It took me a good hour of reading different recipes before settling on this and I am glad I did

You will need:

2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast

1/2 tsp brown sugar

1 1/2 cup warm water

1 tsp salt

2 tbs olive oil

3 cups all purpose flour

.

1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast n brown sugar and let stand for 10 mins.

2. Stir in salt and oil into the solution

3. Mix in 2 1/2 cups of the flour into the bowl

4. Take out dough and out onto clean counter to knead

4. Keep adding flour and knead into until not sticky (about 3/4 cup more)

DSCF4836

5. Lightly oil a large bowl and place dough ball in bowl

DSCF4837

6. Cover bowl with kitchen cloth for about 1 hour.

DSCF4838

7. Dough should be double it original size at the end of the hour

DSCF4844

8. Punch dough to release the air

8 – Portion dough into 2, let it sit for a couple minutes to relax. This makes 2 medium pizza. Then, I experimented with different methods of rolling out the dough.

I watched Good Eats last night and Alton Brown recommends hand stretching pizza dough and not rolling out w a rolling pin. I wanted to see what the difference would be when pizza bakes

DSCF4848

top – hand stretched. bottom – rolled out with a pin

9. Make sure pizza pan is lightly oiled.

Let pizza stand for about 15 minutes to rise a little bit more before putting on topping~

*note: Some have had problems with uncooked dough when the dough is not stretch thin enough. If you like a thicker crust, just pre-bake pizza for about 5 minutes before adding topping.

Alton Brown is right! Pizza dough that is hand stretched came out better than the dough that I just rolled out. The hand stretched pizza baked better and was fluffier. Weird huh? I can’t remember his explanation of why. Something about air bubbles in the dough. LOL

Honey garlic chicken ingredients!

DSCF4850

You will need:

BBQ honey garlic sauce (recipe below)

2 chicken breasts

2 whole roasted garlic (instructions below)

1/2 large onion (caramelised)

2 cups shredded mozarella cheese (according to personal preference)

2 stalks of green onions (only the green part)

1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

.

.

1 – spread a thin layer of sauce on dough

DSCF4852

2. squish the roasted garlic with fingers and spread all over.

3. add chicken pieces (I marinated mine lightly in the same sauce for 2 hours and then grilled it on the BBQ – you can bake it in the oven). CHicken pieces should be fully cooked.

DSCF4853

4. Add caramelised onions (the original pizza hut’s version does not have this but I love the sweetness of onions on pizza)

DSCF4854

5. Top off with Mozzarella cheese. Enough to cover

DSCF4855

6. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes on 425F/220C.

7. When cheese is browned, remove from oven

Sprinkle sesame seeds and green onions all over the top

Drizzle a little bit more sauce all over.

OMG! This totally reminded me of my delinquent days  (or so Meep calls those days). Getting a slice for $2.50 and eating at the steps of the internet cafe in Bandar. Ahh…. good times~

Enjoy!!!!

Recipe for honey garlic sauce

Feel free to buy bottled sauce, makes you life easier! But if you want what I did I used

1 cup water

1/2 cup light brown sugar

3 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon honey (dark honey)

3 cloves garlic minced

2 tablespoon cornstarch

(whisk everything together and boil, when it comes to a boil, turn heat to low and continue whisking till thickens)

With this sauce – I added about 2 tablespoon of Kraft bbq sauce.

.

Roasted garlic step by step

I kept trying to remember the pizza from Pizza hut and I remembered the garlic was always soft, mushy and barely has the pungent, overpowering garlic taste. I read about roasted garlic a while back and it seems to me that Pizza hut used roasted garlic coz if it was fresh, it wouldn’t have the texture I remembered. ANd this guess worked out!

1 – cut off tops of the garlic

DSCF4839

2 – drizzle about 1/2 tsp olive oil on the top of each garlic

DSCF4841

3. wrap garlic in aluminium foil. Make sure it is seal tight.

DSCF4842

4. Bake garlic in 400F oven for 1 hour.

DSCF4849

5. when cooled, just press the bottom of the garlic and each little clove with come popping out~ ^_^

.

.

Caramelised onions

Cut onion into thin strips

Heat up 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan

Add onions and sprinkle with black pepper

Remove from heat when browned but not soggy

.

.

This is my longest post but I figured I should just combine it all in here rather than have 3 separate ones.

  7. Eddangel says:

    🙂 Hope it works out for you. I know for some, the dough doesn’t bake well if you don’t have the right pizza pan so you might want to stretch it ; let rise for 5 more minutes; pre-bake it for 5 minutes. then top the pizza. Enjoy~

  13. Farah says:

    Hi Edda,
    Thank you the sharing your recipe. My family loved it! Ive been making this over n Over n it is still a hit! Cheers! P.s: dough isnt chewy if it’s stretched by hand, rolling pin makes dough lose its airiness.

  14. Eddangel says:

    thanks! I am glad you enjoyed it~ Ahhh… now I know why I should hand stretch my pizza dough *lol*

  15. ann says:

    where do you get all purpose flour..it hard to find that flour 🙁

  16. Eddangel says:

    I think you can definitely find it in Supasave, if not Hua Ho? I think in Brunei, it might just be called plain flour?

  17. Khairi Wazien says:

    Hey.. Where do you live? I lived in belait and I can’t found mozarella cheese? Where do you buy it?

  18. Eddangel says:

    I live in the states but you can find mozarella cheese in Supasave or even Hua Ho in Gadong. I have seen it before.

    Hi,

    I never have seen BBQ Honey garlic sauce. But if you can buy any brand of BBQ sauce – then u can just modify it. The details are in the post but this is what you will need in addition to Bottled BBQ Sauce:
    Recipe for honey garlic sauce
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup light brown sugar
    3 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 tablespoon honey (dark honey)

    2 tablespoon cornstarch
    (whisk everything together and boil, when it comes to a boil, turn heat to low and continue whisking till thickens)

  27. Eddangel says:

    Hi Hamizah!!!

    Hope all is well with you~ I made up this recipe years ago and it is still one of the popular ones. Let me know when you try it and compare it to Pizza Hut! The original is still the best~ 🙂

  28. Hamizah says:

    I haven’t tasted the original in about three months now, so I hope I remember how it tastes like.

    Lol, just had a bad craving for it, bought the ingredients you listed online, so I will probably make it in a day or two. I will post it on my blog!

    Thanks for sharing! Hope all is well with you too!
