Roast Pumpkin and Chorizo Pizza 南瓜西班牙香肠比萨

Yesterday after we have dinner at Bangsar, then we went to nearby Jasons food hall to get this Chorizo which is a new ingredient for me. Today i used this chorizo and add pumpkin to make into pizza. I got this new inspiration after watched the Australian masterchef TV program.

Love this combo! Sweetness from pumpkin and savoury from Chorizo, they tasted very good!

Roast Pumpkin and Chorizo Pizza 南瓜西班牙香肠比萨
*makes 2 pizzas 

Pizza dough
250g bread flour
1tsp instant yeast
10ml olive oil
1tsp sugar
3/4tsp salt

140ml water 

100g Chorizo, sliced
120g pumpkin, peeled and cut into 1cm cubes
160g coarsely grated mozzarella
80g tomato paste (add a pinch of salt and mix well)
Sweet basil leaves, optional 


1.     For the pizza dough, combine the bread flour, sugar, yeast and salt in a mixing bowl and combine.

2.     Add water and olive oil, mix to combine, knead till smooth. Add dough in another clean and greased large bowl, cover the bowl and put in warm area to let it proof to double in size, about 1hour.

3.     Preheat oven to 200°C. Place the pumpkin on a lined baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and cayenne pepper to season. Toss to combine. Roast for 10 minutes or until almost tender.

4.     Turn the pizza dough out onto a worktop and divide it into 2 equal pieces. Cover each with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let them rest for 10 minutes.

5.     Sprinkle a baking sheet with cornmeal or course polenta (omit if you don’t have), roll dough into a round circle on prepared baking sheet.

6.     Spread tomato sauce evenly over dough, top with chorizo slices, roasted pumpkin cubes, sweet basil leaves and sprinkle with cheese.

7.     Bake at 180C on middle rack (fan forced) for 15-17 minutes or until crust is golden.

Not all chorizo are purely pork so now I have to choose very carefully as I don't eat beef. The red chorizo & golden pumpkin had brightened your pizza & looked so delicious!
