Homemade Pizza

P1020252

Pizza is one of those foods that is quite unhealthy, but can be made healthy. As in, the base and the toppings can be substituted for healthier alternatives, such as, a cauliflower case and a homemade tomato sauce. You get the gist… Now this recipe isn’t that healthy, but it’s homemade and tastes really authentic. The pizza is very very big and I would struggle to eat the whole thing in one go, so I decorate half with something I will eat once it’s cooked, and decorate the other half for the next day. Once you’ve made the dough, the cooking time is super quick, so it’s great for a cosy night in!P1020348

What you’ll need:

  • 7 g of dried yeast.
  • 4 tbsp lukewarm water.
  • 500 g of strong white flour.
  • A pinch of salt and extra for topping.
  • 225 ml cool water.
  • 2 tbsp olive oil and extra for kneading and glossing.

P1020211The steps:

  1. Whisk the warm water and yeast in a large bowl until frothy.
  2. Add the flour, salt and cool water.
  3. Bring the dough together with your hands.
  4. Then add the oil and knead for 5 – 10 minutes until smooth and stretchy.
  5. Add in more oil as you knead, so you can keep the bread moist and stop it from sticking.
  6. Put the dough in a clean bowl and cover it with cling film. Leave it in a warm dry place until it’s doubled in size (about 30 mins)
  7. Afterwards, roll it out and cut into a circle of your choice.
  8. Decorate it with toppings of your desire. I chose; peppers, mozzarella, tomato sauce, pineapple and ham.
  9. Cook for 7 minutes on 220 degrees c.
