My favorite pizza is Roundtable’s Maui Zaui. They’ve perfected this brilliant combination of flavors, but it’s damn pricey to order more than occasionally.
As if Roundtable’s creation wasn’t taunting enough, our bar back home has a similar pizza, which, I literally, crave every day.
I finally broke down and realized that I needed to figure out how to make this on my own.
– 1 pouch (.25oz) of Fleischmann’s Pizza Crust Yeast
– 1 3/4 – 2 1/4 cups flour
– 1 1/2 tsp sugar
– 3/4 tsp salt
– 2/3 cup very warm tap water
– 3 tbsp oil
– Johnny’s Garlic Spread & Seasoning
– 1 cup sugar
– 3/4 cup white vinegar
– 1/2 cup water
– 1-2 tbs chili paste
– 3 cloves garlic
– 1 tbs corn starch
– pinch of salt
– crushed pineapple
– Mozerella cheese
– Canadian bacon
– Crushed Pineapple
…AND AWAY WE GO…
1. CRUST: Combine 1 cup of flour, yeast, sugar, salt in a medium bowl. Add very warm water and oil, mix until well blended. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough (3/4 cup). Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky. On a floured surface knead the dough while adding additional flour (if necessary) until smooth and elastic (about 4 min). Knead in Johnny’s Grlic Spread & Seasoning to taste or other seasoning of your choice, for extra flavor in your dough (the dough is very bland without it. Divide the dough in half to make 2 thin crust pizzas (or you may make one thick crust pizza). Spread the dough on a greased pizza pan.
2. SAUCE: Combine sugar, vinegar, water and garlic (finely chopped) in a sauce pan and let it boil for 3 min. Use a separate small bowl to mix equal parts water and corn starch. Once water and starch is combined, slowly stir in to the the sauce pan, add chili past and salt, then let boil for an additional 3 min. I added a little pineapple juice and a couple spoonfuls of crushed pineapple to the sauce for some extra deliciousness!
3. TOPPINGS: Sprinkle a couple hand fulls fo cheese, toss on some canadian bacon (I chopped mine into smaller pieces first), spread around some pineapple and top it off with a good dose of bacon!
4. BAKE: @ 425* on lowest oven rack for 12 to 15 minutes.
OR MAYBE THIS: Add red and green onions to make this a true “Maui Zaui” or use the sauce and add different toppings to make your very own specialty pizza!
