Eel pizza 鰻魚比薩

Ew! What kind of idea is that?! I am sure one might say things like that, especially someone is accustomed to the traditional pizza flavor. But, hey, think outside of the box, you can put anything you like on a pizza. This is more of a fusion style, you may say, Japanese and American. I had this grilled eel (frozen) in my freezer for a long time for making sushi, and now I finally got a chance to use it. Thanks for Carol's great recipe. However, I have tried many recipes for pizza dough, and I think the following gives me the best result and it's very easy to make with only a few ingredients.

Pizza dough (for one 9" pizza):
  • Active dry yeast: 1 tsp
  • Warm water: 160 g
  • All-purpose flour: 300 g (can mix with the whole wheat flour)
  • Sugar: 1 Tbsp
  • Salt: 1 tsp
  • Butter: 30 g (2 Tbsp)

  • One grilled eel
  • 1/4 onion
  • 5-6 mushrooms
  • 1/2 lb. mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds

1. Mix the flour, sugar and salt in the bread maker (using the "dough" function) or a stand mixer. Add the warm water. Let the dough almost come to a ball and add the butter and yeast. Close the lid and let the machine does the work for you.

2. When it is done, the volume of the dough should be double in size. If you poke your finger in the dough, it won't bounce back. Roll it out into the size of desire. I made it into a 9-inch pizza.

3. Spread some sauce from the grilled eel on the pizza. Spread a layer of mozzarella cheese evenly. Then put the eel, onion, mushroom and sesame seeds on the pizza.

4. Bake at 400F (200C) for 12 min.
