You all know what it is and how it's made
In my family we don't order a pizza but make one or two if we have guests! It's easy and healthier!
We'll need (for two 28 cm pizzas)
For the pizza Dough
1 cup warm water
1 package active dry yeast (2 teaspoons)
3 cups all- purpose flour (or more)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tbsp sugar
-- you can use any ingredient you like, these are the ingredients I use every time--
Tomato sauce (purée)
Tomato thin slices
Mozzarella or gouda or edam cheese, shredded
Some feta cheese in cubes
Mushrooms, thinly sliced
peppers thinly sliced
Chopped fresh basil or mint
some slices of sausage
some olive oil
If you have an electric mixer, put the warm water and the yeast inside the mixer bowl and leave it for 5 minutes. Until it is dissolved. Then you have to put inside the dough ingredients in low speed and have it done in 10 minutes. Let the dough sit in a warm place for 1 hour.
--I personally don't have an electric mixer, so for those who don't have it, my method is this; I put the warm water in a bowl and the yeast as well. I mix it with my hand until the yeast is dissolved. I put inside all the dough ingredients and knead it with my hand. If the dough is wet and sticking on your hand, then add some more flour. When the dough is ready, I leave the bowl with a towel on it in a warm place (inside a room) for 1 hour.--
Preheat the oven to 180 C. Remove the towel from the dough and punch it so it can release the air. Divide the dough into 2 balls. In the meanwhile, prepare your desired toppings.
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. Make it as thick as desired- I personally don't like it too thin-- Turn and stretch the dough until it will not stretch further. Continue to stretch it until it reaches the desired diameter - 28 cm. Brush with olive oil 2 baking pans. Place the dough to the baking pan. Repeat with the second ball of dough.
Spoon on the tomato sauce, sprinkle with cheese, and place your desired toppings on the pizza.Bake pizza one at a time until the crust is browned and the cheese is golden, about 10-15 minutes.
