- For Sauce: 2 tbsp tomato paste, ½ cup tomato puree, 1 minced garlic clove, 1 tbsp fresh basil
- For Toppings: 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, ½ cup cheese spread, ½ cup onion, ½ cup tomatoes, chillies
The first step of pizza making process is to make the dough. You can use ready-made pizza base but the taste of homemade dough is way better.
To make the dough, combine yeast, sugar and water in a bowl. Stir it with a spoon and then let it rest for about 15 minutes. This will help the yeast to ‘bloom’.
After 15 minutes, add salt to 1 cup of flour. Then stir in this flour into the bloomed yeast mixture. Then take another cup of the flour and stir it into the same mixture.
Take the mixture made in step 2 and put it on kneading board or on a flat utensil. Then slowly work the third cup of flour into the mixture and keep kneading it till it is soft to touch and elastic like. Make sure that the dough is not sticky.
Roll the dough to form a ball. Then coat it in olive oil. Take a bowl and put the dough in it. Cover the top of bowl with a damp towel and let it rise for 40 minutes.
After 40 minutes, uncover the bowl. You will notice that the dough has risen to become double its size. Put the dough on the board and punch it down. Then knead it for 2 minutes.
Take out the pizza pan or oven tray and spray it with olive oil. Then spread the dough on the pan.
Now it is time to make the sauce. To make the sauce, combine tomato paste, tomato puree, garlic mince and basil in a small bowl. Then spread it on the pizza dough.
Spread the cheese spread on the sauce and then top it up with the mozzarella cheese. Finally put the onions and tomatoes in a single layer all over the pizza.
Put it inside the oven and bake it for 11 to 13 minutes at 500 degree Fahrenheit. When you take it out of oven, your delicious pizza with cheese spread is ready.
