Homemade pizza

I love pizza. Is one of my favorite food. So I tried to do one in my home, using bio ingredients so I can give it to my little boy. Usually, homemade pizza is not very taste, not like the one from the restaurant, but, I don’t want to brag, mine was better than expected.

Ingredients:

Pizza dough (1 or 2 pizza):

– 300 ml water

– 1 tablespoon olive oil

– 1 teaspoon salt

– 1 teaspoon sugar (optional)

– 1 teaspoon oregano

– 540 g flour

– 3/4 package yeast

Pizza ingredients:

– 1 big red pepper

– 1 cup mushrooms

– homemade tomato sauce

– Mozzarella or Parmesan cheese, shredded

– sliced ham

– pizza condiments (oregano, onion, garlic, black pepper, anise, basil, marjoram)

Directions:

For the dough I used my new bread machine, which made my day very easy. I encourage you to use one if you have.

Place a pizza tray on a rack in the lower third of your oven. Preheat the oven to 240 Celsius degrees Β for at least 30 minutes, preferably an hour.

Divide the dough in half. Form two round balls of dough. Place each in its own bowl, cover with plastic and let sit for 10 minutes.

Working one ball of dough at a time, take one ball of dough and flatten it with your hands on a slightly floured work surface. Starting at the center and working outwards, use your fingertips to press the dough to 1/2-inch thick. Turn and stretch the dough until it will not stretch further. Let the dough relax 5 minutes and then continue to stretch it until it reaches the desired diameter – 10 to 12 inches. Use your palm to flatten the edge of the dough where it is thicker. You can pinch the very edges if you want to form a lip.

Brush the top of the dough with olive oil (to prevent it from getting soggy from the toppings). Use your finger tips to press down and make dents along the surface of the dough to prevent bubbling. Let rest another 5 minutes.

Repeat with the second ball of dough.

Spoon on the tomato sauce, sprinkle with cheese, and place your desired toppings on the pizza. Cooked for 30-40 min. Enjoy!7

  1. My 13-year-old son recently made pizza – he used whole wheat flour – the pizza was good, but… – is there a flour you might recommend with the same benefits and not as ‘wheaty’

  2. Pizza is my comfort food. But for the calories I could make it my staple diet lol .I am sure your home made version is a lot healthier. Will try πŸ™‚

  3. The last time I made home made pizza, I used a pizza stone.
    When I tried to take the pizza out of the oven, the stone slid off the rack and hit me on the arm.
    Ouch! Second degree burn immediately! My husband said (after he bought the bandages) that it would have been cheaper if we had gone out to eat. True.
    Homemade pizza is wonderful though….I just have to learn to be more careful. 😦

  4. Great way to make a pizza! It also looks very tasty. Because of my diet, I often make my own pizza (different one though) and I have to say… I find the homemade pizza better than any from the store or restaurant! Amizing πŸ™‚
