Kiwi Pizza


Kiwi Pizza! Yeah, correct! It is a kiwi pizza. A totally brand new idea to transform my today's kiwi into savory dish. Surprisingly, these fresh green kiwi turn up sourish after baked, and complement to the sweet baked pineapple. In this case, you can reduce the amount of tomato as after baked Kiwi taste is as sour as tomato too.

In conclusion, this Kiwi pizza contains full flavour, in range from sweet, sour to salty (from cheese). This will be included into my new recipe book :)


During my food research today, I found an article is extremely interesting called  Kiwifruit and Latex Allergy.

"Like avocados and bananas, kiwifruit contain substances called compounds that are associated with the latex-fruit allergy syndrome. There is an evidence of the cross-reaction between latex and these foods."

If you have a latex allergy, you may very likely be allergic to these foods as well. Processing the fruit with ethylene gas increases these enzymes, means to cook or bake it; organic produce not treated with gas will have fewer allergy-causing compounds. In addition, cooking or baking the kiwi deactivates the enzymes.

Hrm..indeed this is an interesting finding.

Here is my Hankerie's recipe on this Zespri Kiwi Pizza

Ingredients

Pizza dough:
  1. 254g bread flour
  2. 1/2 tsp table salt
  3. 3 tsp sugar
  4. 170g water
  5. 1 tsp instant dried yeast
  6. 1 1/2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
  7. 1/2 tsp table salt
  8. 1/2 TBSP fresh milk

Toppings:

2 Zespri Green Kiwi (Cut into pieces, you can substitude one green kiwi with Sun Gold Kiwi)
1/4 pineapple, peeled, cut into pieces
100g chicken breast (Fried the chicken with some tomato sauce first)
1 onion
4TBSP paste tomato sauce
1 big Tomato (Cut into pieces)
1/2 cup of  shredded mozarella cheese
Some Italian herbs (I used my home grown fresh basil leaves)

Method
  1. Sieve pizza flour, sugar & salt twice, make it a well shape.
  2. Pour in the yeast & water into well.
  3. Slowly mix it.
  4. Add on the olive oil and milk, mix it until smooth.
  5. Cover the dough with damp cloth. Let it proof for at least an hour.
  6. After an hour, test the dough with finger. Sprinkle some flour on the counter, roll & make the dough into half and make to the round shape (with 0.5cm - 1cm thick) to fit into 10-inch round baking tray. You can make it into 1 big square pan.
  7. Let it rest for another 15 minutes. 
  8. Spread the pasta tomato sauce. Sprinkle the chicken, onion, kiwi fruits, pineapple, tomato, mozarella cheese & italian herbs.
  9. Bake at 200C for around 15 minutes (depends on your oven, I am using full-forced fan oven)
