Sesame Mushrooms Pizza

A delicious vegetarian pizza served in black sesame pizza crust and topped with sweet and spicy sesame paste, mushrooms, capsicum, tomatoes, baby rocket leaves, under the golden mozzarella cheese crust. Some Jagabee potato sticks were hidden under the pile of mushrooms and vegetables to serve as moisture absorber during baking. Wonderful flavour and texture 😋😋

Sweet Stiff Starter
20g water
5g raw sugar
1g instant dry yeast *

* if you want a faster proofing time, you can increase the 1g instant dry yeast to 2g.

Mix all the ingredients together into a soft smooth ball. Place the sweet stiff starter in a bowl, and cut the upper portion into 4 portions with the base attached. 

Seal with a cling wrap, and let it rest for about 3 hours.

Spicy Sesame Paste
20g roasted sesame salad dressing
15g Korean red pepper paste
5g roasted sesame seeds
8g raw sugar

Mix all the ingredients together into a paste. Set aside.

Black Sesame Seed Dough

sweet stiff starter from above
5g crushed roasted black sesame seeds
15g raw sugar
2g low-sodium salt
60g low fat milk
30g water
20g to be added depending on dough condition
5g rice bran oil

Tear the sweet stiff starter into smaller pieces and add to the dry ingredients. Stir the mixture in one direction and gradually add in the liquid ingredients. Stir in one direction till the ingredients formed into a ball.
Cover and let it rest for about 15 minutes.

Assembling the pizzas

1. Divide the pizza dough into 4 portions, shape into 4 balls, and rest for 15 minutes.
Roll out the dough into your desired shape and thickness.
Place the shaped dough over an non-stick baking pan dusted with some semolina or bread flour.

2. Spread the spicy sesame paste over the pizza dough leaving about 1 cm edge round the dough free.

3. Assemble all the toppings over the dough.

4. Preheat oven to 190℃ turning on the "Fan mode". Bake at middle rack for about 15 to 20 minutes, or till the mozzarella cheese turns golden.
