The compLexity Pizza (compLexity Gaming)
Good Afternoon Everyone!
The first team we’re going to look at today is compLexity Gaming aka (coL). While I have a pretty good understanding of the teams, and DOTA 2 in general, today Mr. Noob Chef will be sharing his thoughts on everything you need to know about Team compLexity:
Complexity’s Dota 2 team aka. “coL” has been a team that is familiar to me for quite some time. I have followed the team form and achieve success from their days playing Heroes of Newerth (HoN), another MOBA game under their old name StayGreen. This team is unique because they are the only professional team to my knowledge that has two sets of brothers: namely Swindlezz and Zfreek and Chessie and Limmp. As such, their familiarity with each other translates well in how they coordinate their play in game.
They were able to achieve a very respectable 4th place finish in the Epicenter tournament back in May and 5-6th in ESL One in Manila only losing the series to the eventual second and first place winners in the respective tournaments. They have recently taken some losses against a formidable up coming Digital Chaos team in some online tournaments such as Starladder and Dota Canada cup. If they can get over this hurdle they should be in pretty good shape.
If there is one thing this team is known for is that they take their losses in stride and always comes back swinging. They are very hungry to win their first major tournament and are ready to rumble in this coming Manila Major!
And now, onto the cooking!
Today I introduce to you “The Not-So-Complex-Complexity Pizza”! I love a great pizza. And you can certainly indulge in pizza without consuming a ton of calories. As the logo of compLexity gaming is a circle, it was only fitting to design my own recipe for their pizza. I hope you all enjoy this fun, easy, pizza and tune in to watch coL battle it out in the group stages Friday June 3rd, 2016! Check out the DOTA 2 Liquipedia page for all match details!

Yields: 6 servings
For the Bechamel Sauce:
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3 cups whole milk
- 1 teaspoon salt, (or more to taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped thyme
- Pinch of Cayenne
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
For the Pizza:
- 1 pre-made pizza crust
- 1 (8 ounce) pack Mozzarella cheese, grated
- 1 pack sliced mushrooms
- 1 small jar of sun dried tomatoes
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees (F).
- In a small cooking pot over medium heat, drop in the butter. Stir until it melts, then add 3 tablespoons of flour to make a roux.
- Next, add 3 cups of milk and whisk together to dissolve any lumps. Continue stirring for 10-15 minutes, slowly, as the sauce begins to reduce and thicken. Nearing the end of the 10-15 minutes, stir in the parsley, thyme, salt, black pepper, cayenne, garlic powder, and Parmesan cheese.
- Remove from heat and set aside in a bowl.
- Now it’s time to assemble the pizza! Grease a round pizza pan. Next, lay the pre-baked crust on the pan. Add about 1 cup of sauce on the pizza and brush it all over evenly. Then sprinkle on the mozzarella cheese.
- Add the sun dried tomatoes in the shape of a C. Then add the sliced mushrooms in the shape of a backwards C.
- Bake at 425 degrees (F) for 10 minutes and you’re done! Serve hot and enjoy! 🙂
