Nasi Lemak Pizza by Andrew Lim
Here is a marriage of 2 of my most favorite dishes; Nasi Lemak & Pizza.
So I whipped up an East meets West dish of Nasi Lemak Pizza...without the Nasi actually.
I used coconut oil instead of olive oil and I added coconut cream to the pizza dough, and the result is a soft and fragrant pizza dough.
Don't let the long list of ingredients scare you off, especially with the convenience of Prima Taste Authentic Asia Cooking Sauces, this fusion pizza is not only easy to prepare, it is delicious to savour! Enjoy the best of both worlds!
Nasi Lemak Pizza…but without the Nasi!

Add the 3 cups of bread flour and turn the mixer on low using the dough hook.
Increase the speed to medium after 3 minutes.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix on medium speed for around 10 mins.
Remove the dough from the hook, split the dough into 2 and shape the dough into a ball shape.
