When it comes to pizza, there are so many recipes out there to follow. Firstly, because there are lots of variety of it. From the stuffing you may choose to the base (thin, thick, crisp, etc). You will find thousands of varieties of pizzas in the market.
The best, of course, for me is the one made at home. Served right after getting it out from the ove. Yum yum!
Here it is the way I make it.
- 1 kg Flour
- 25 gr Fresh baking powder or 2 tble spoons Yeast
- 2 tble spoons Oil
- 1 tea spoon Salt
- 1 tble spoon sugar
- Warm Water
- Tomato Paste
- Cheddar and Parmesano cheese
So here it begins.
The first thing you have to do is make the dough and let it rise for a couple of hours minimum. Wait until it rises the double. If you are using Yeast instead of fresh Baking Powder, let the yeast in half of cup warm water and leave it for 5 minutes. After that add it to the flour.
When the dough is ready, extend a round form. Set it on the oven paper (in case you don't have that heat just a little the base on a pan).
Apply tomatoe paste on it.
As you may noticed I didn't mention any other ingredients for the stuffing up here. Because that is totally optional. You can make a pizza with only the 3 ingrediets I noted down (Tomatp paste Cheese and oregano). But you can also put anything you want to.
What I usually use is boneless chicken cooked with red and green capsicums with some spices.
Finally cover it with lots of cheese, some olives and sprinkle a little of oregano.
Bake it in a preheated oven at 200 ºC.
