Pradeep today prepared Pizza at home right from the beginning! He even prepared the Pizza Crust at home! Pizza tasted Yummy!!
If you wish to prepare “Home Made Pizzas”, here is my husband’s recipe:
Home made Veggie Pizza
3 1/2 cups of all purpose flour(maida),
2 cups warm water,
1 packet(2 teaspoons) of dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar,
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoon salt,
2 Tbsp Olive oil,
1 cup Pizza sauce,
1 cup shredded cheese(mozzarella)
Method for preparing dough:
1>Add sugar and dry yeast to warm water and set it aside for 5 mins to allow it to bubble.
2>Add flour,salt,oil and the mixture(prepared in step 1) to the Food Processor. Mix the ingredients and prepare a soft dough.
If you do not possess a Food Processor,use your hand to knead the dough for 15-20 minutes.
3>Smear olive oil in a bowl and place the dough in it.
4>Roll the dough in that bowl for oil to be spread evenly.
5>Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and keep aside for 1 hour 30 mins in a warm place such that the dough doubles itself
6>Punch down the dough and divide the dough into 2 balls.
7>Keep the dough balls seperate bowls for 10 minutes.
8>Place the Pizza Stone and preheat the oven for 450 degrees for at least 30 minutes
Method for preparing Pizza Crust:
1>Take the dough and press and pat it to make a circular base about 10 -12 inches wide and thickness about 1/2 an inch.
2>Take a cutting board and sprinkle some “corn meal” on it. Transfer the Pizza base on it
3>Apply olive oil on the Pizza base.
4>Add 2-3 Tbsp of Pizza sauce, 1/3 cup of cheese and cut vegetables on the crust.
5>Again sprinkle some “Corn meal” on the Preheated Pizza Stone,place this pizza crust on it and bake for 15 minutes.
