Homemade Italian Pizza
For Pizza Crust:
3 cups of all-purpose flour
1 cup of luke-warm water
1 tbsp of salt
1 tbsp of sugar (Belzy -- I skipped it)
1 tbsp of yeast
2 tbsp of oil (the best less fat oil: olive oil, canola oil, sunflower oil)
Extra oil to grease the bowl
Pepperoni of Salami
Homemade pizza sauce base*
Shredded mozarella cheese
Homemade pizza sauce base:
5 tbsps of tomato ketchup
1 tbsp of oregano
1 tbsp of garlic powder
1/4 tsp of sugar
For Pizza Crust:
Mix all purpose flour, salt and sugar (if desire) in a bowl, mixed well. Stir in water and oil, stir well and add in yeast. Mix those ingredients by hand until elastic or until the dough rise up again when you pinch it.
Brush a new bowl with oil slightly, then move the dough into the greasy bowl. Cover it with clingwrap plastic or a clean towel. Let it rest until double size. Do not put the bowl near the stove!!
After the dough doubled in size, slowly push the dough down to let the air go. Shape the dough into round form and cover it with clingwrap plastic or clean towel again. Let it rest for 1 hour.
Then, if you want to make big pizza, roll the whole dough on the greasy parchment paper into square or round form, but if you want to make small pizza, you need to divide the dough into 3 round of crust base).
Spread the homemade pizza sauce base on the rolled dough, sprinkle it with mozarella cheese and make sure the cheese cover the whole dough's surface, then followed by mushroom, olive and salami. Then, sprinkle the pizza with more mozarella cheese.
Bake it in the preheated 400`F oven for 10-12 minutes or until th ecrust little bit rised and brown. Dish it out and cut it into 8 pieces pizza. Enjoy!!
1. The thinner you roll the crust, the more crispy the pizza will be.
2. For the pizza sauce base, you can buy a ready pizza sauce base at supermarket.
