Pizza Anyone? Go On , I know you want to!!

Nothing beats a gorgeous pizza, especially when its home-made with fresh ingredients !!

Delicious!! and piping hot:)

And how could you say no to this???

Homemade pizza  sugo and base , mushrooms, bacon, salame and mozzarella, a bit of basil and ooooohhhh parmesan.

I know I have done the non-Italian thing of over doing the toppings but I promise I have spread the toppings out:)

Melty cheese>>…

Now I know you are going to want to make this!!

And lie back and dream of Napoli!!

So without further ado, let’s get yeasty!!

You will need ……

3 tsps dried yeast

Pinch of sugar

1 & 1/2 cups of warm water

1/2 cup of Olive oil

Pinch of salt

4 &1/2 cups of Strong bakers flour.

Pizza Dough…

Mix yeast and sugar into the warm water .

Stand for 10 minutes until frothy.

Pour Olive oil into the water mix and combine well.

Place all dry ingredients in a bowl and add in the water/oil/ yeast mix.

Combine well and knead until smooth, about 8-10 minutes.

Place dough in lightly oiled bowl and cover tightly and leave for 60 minutes.

Yummy Pizza toppings…See the BIG wedge of Parmy!!

Turn Pizza out on lightly floured board/ bench and shape your dough with your hands or a rolling-pin.

I made two pizzas from my dough , two rectangle pizza about 40cm x 25cm, so not small!!

This dough freezes well too, so you could roll them out and freeze!!

Place dough on tray(as I did or on a pizza pan or peel and allow to sit for 30 minutes.

While it is resting, I usually make my sugo, which varies every time!

Sugra for the pizza

This time, I used a can of chopped tomatoes, garlic, basil and a pinch of sugar..

I reduced it down and let it cool:)

When the pizza dough is ready, preheat the oven to 240 celsius.

Put your sugo on the base of the pizza and whatever toppings you fancy .

Spread the base

Place tray with pizza or pan into the oven and bake until golden brown.

Bake 25-35 minutes dependent on your oven and your size of the pizza.

If you use a stone, put it in the oven about 60 minutes before baking.

When baked , remove from oven and slice and ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY, while hot:)

Bacon, salame and cheese greedyboys pizza…

Or if you are able, keep a slice or two for lunch or midnight snacks!!

Kids like making pizza too, especially putting the toppings on 🙂

Not much left….
