November 24, 2023


For the Mantou Crust:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp yeast

1 tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup warm water

1 tbsp vegetable oil

For the Toppings:

1 cup crab meat (preferably fresh)

1/2 cup chilli crab sauce (you can find this pre-made or make it from scratch)

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1/4 cup spring onions, chopped

1 egg, for egg wash (optional)

For Garnish:

Fresh cilantro

A squeeze of lime


Prepare the Mantou Crust:

Mix flour, yeast, sugar, and salt in a bowl.

Gradually add warm water and oil, mixing until a dough forms.

Knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth, about 5 minutes.

Let it rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Punch down the dough, then stretch and flatten to form a pizza base.

Assemble the Pizza:

Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F).

Spread chilli crab sauce evenly over the crust.

Top with crab meat, bell pepper slices, and mozzarella cheese.

Brush the crust edges with egg wash for a golden finish (optional).

Bake the Pizza:

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the crust is golden and cheese is bubbly.

Final Touches:

Garnish with spring onions, fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of lime.


Slice and serve hot, letting each bite transport you to a festive Singaporean Christmas celebration!
