Pizza Dough Method
You purchase a premade pizza base at your local store, or if you have time, make your own homemade dough following the simple steps below.
- Whisk yeast and lukewarm water in a jug. Stand for around five minutes.
- Add flour and salt in a large bowl. Create a well in the centre of the flour. Pour in the liquid yeast mixture and the oil.
- Using a spatula, or your hands, mix the dough really well until smooth. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for five minutes.
- Lightly oil a bowl, and place dough in it and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes to an hour, or until it doubles in size.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for another 5 minutes or until smooth.
- Divide the dough into balls, and roll out bases to desired size.
- Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking.

White Pizza Sauce Method
You can either make your own tasty pizza sauce following the simple steps below, or you can purchase a pizza sauce at your local supermarket.
- Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and continue whisking for 1-2 minutes.
- Slowly add milk, whisking constantly until smooth, thickened, and bubbly.
- Whisk in 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp black pepper, and pressed garlic.
- Add parmesan cheese and whisk another 30 seconds. Remove from heat and continue whisking just until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth then set aside to cool.
- Do not boil after adding cheese or sauce may curdle. Once cooled, cover and refrigerate up to 5 days.
Remember that you can add salt and pepper to taste for the perfect flavor.
Preparing Potetama Chan Pizza
Switch oven on to at least 450 degrees and preheat for at least 30 minutes.
Stretch out dough into a circle, on a floured surface.
If you are using a pizza steel or stone, make sure it is preheating in oven.
Now it’s time to add the sauce. This recipe calls for White Sauce. Spread the White Sauce around the pizza base, leaving a gap at edges.
Add your ingredients in size, from the largest to smallest.
Cheese should be sprinkled on at the end.
Toppings for this pizza are;
- Egg Salad
Whilst this pizza is tasty as is, or you could pair it with another pizza as well?
Put the Potetama Chan pizza on the middle shelf of the oven and wait for approximately 10 minutes.
After roughly 10 minutes, check on the pizza.
Pizza should be ready within 15 minutes. However, allow it to cook to personal taste.
About Cream Cheese
Cream cheese is a soft, mild-tasting fresh cheese made from milk and Cream. It is meant to be consumed fresh, Cream cheese is not naturally matured, so it differs from other soft cheeses such as Brie and Neufchâtel.
It is comparable in taste and production methods to Mascarpone and Boursin. Whether it’s in sweet, savoury, keto or healthy dishes, Cream cheese is one versatile ingredient.
When making Potetama Chan Pizza, I always recommend that you use what you have already, and avoid spending a ton of money. My recommended basic pizza tool list is…
If you ever coat your dough in water, oil, eggs or more, then you need a pastry brush. These brushes tend to be cheap to have and very handy to use.
Do you have quality digital kitchen scales? It’s a great tool for any chef or pizza cook.
These may seem like a weird tool to some, however other pizzaiolo’s swear by using scissors instead of a traditional pizza cutter.
Mayonnaise (aka Mayo) typically contains Oil, eggs, and an acid, such as Vinegar or lemon Juice. There are a few healthy elements to Mayo, such as vitamin E, for heart health, and vitamin K, for blood clotting. It can also be made with healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
Whilst not a typical ingredient, Mayonnaise goes really well with any Pizza that has savory toppings and Tomato sauce base. It’s great on a meatlovers, Pepperoni pizza or four cheese pizza.
These facts will interest you.
There is a National Pizza with the Works Except Anchovies Day, which although a mouthful, is held on November 12 each year.
Would you try pizza perfume?
Pizza Hut Canada released a limited-edition pizza perfume, back in 2012. The scent was described as ‘freshly baked, hand-tossed dough.’ I love pizza, but no.
Don’t worry, be happy
In Cambodia, some pizzerias have marijuana topped ‘happy pizzas’ on their menu.

Pizza making FAQ
Below we’ve compiled the most common pizza making questions and provided expert answers. Are you looking for how to make awesome pizza at home? Please read on!
What is the order of ingredients when topping a pizza?
The order of ingredients when topping a pizza is typically the pizza sauce, the large ingredients (meat, seafood, vegetables, etc), the smaller ingredients, cheese topping then herbs. If you are using fresh herbs, you may wish to bake the oven then sprinkle them on afterwards, to avoid them browning.
When do I add ice cream on a dessert pizza?
With ingredients such as ice cream, cream and even fruits, it is normally best to cook the pizza with the harder toppings, and then add these toppings after baking, so they don’t burn or melt everywhere in the oven.
Can I substitute pizza sauce with regular ketchup or pasta sauce?
You can try, however you probably won’t enjoy the result. Both ketchup and pasta sauces are typically too runny to use as pizza sauce. You are better using tomato paste, or at least mixing tomato paste in with your ketchup, to get a thicker sauce. Half the taste of pizza sauce is in the garlic and herbs, so don’t forget to add those as well.
