I made guotie today for the boys. They never get tired of eating my guotie but I did something different with the shape today. I did one with two open ends rather than the usual closeup type. I also did one like a pizza style and called it Chinese pizza. Hehehe. Sharing with you how it looks like.
300 gm flour
¼ tsp salt
20 gm shortening
Mix all the ingredients together and knead into a dough. Rest it for 20 mins. Cut some dough out and roll into a long stick. Cut into small pieces and dust with some flour to prevent them from sticking. Take a piece of dough and with your left hand turning the dough and the right hand holding the rolling pin, roll it into a round shape. Take some filling and pile it on the guo tie skin. For those who have no idea how to wrap it, here is an easy way to do it. Place skin with filling on your table. Pick up one side of the skin and make a few pleats. Pick up the other direct opposite side and stick the two sides together. Adjust the shape to make it look like guo tie.
For the Chinese pizza shape, even easier. Roll out two pieces of round dough. Pile with fillings and either pleat the side to close it up or just pinch them tight.
Heat up a non-stick frying pan with some oil. Place wrapped guo tie or Chinese pizza into the frying pan. Use small fire let the bottom brown nicely. When one side is brown, pour a little bit of water into the pan (not too much). Cover the pan and let it cook. Cook until the water has dried up and your guo tie should be cooked by now. Serve the guo tie with some finely shredded young ginger and black vinegar. Enjoy!
To cook the Chinese pizza shape guo tie, no need to use water to steam cook it. What I did was to pan fry both sides until brown and crispy. Place it on a cutting board and cutting into serving size.
