Standard

PizzaDelicious pizza is they joy of the day.  After a sleep (which is unheard of most mornings) and a few pottering chores we sat down to homemade pizza.  I’ll add the recipe below for those for a feeling hungry.

Pizzabase:

2 cups of plain flour

2 teaspoons of sugar

2 heaped teaspoons of dried yeast

pinch of salt

enough warm water to make a soft but not sticky dough

 

If the dough is sticky just add more flour.  Once combined kneed it on a floured board until the dough is smooth and stretchy.  Replace in bowl, cover with a damp cloth and place in the microwave on high for 20 sec.  Leave it in the damp and warmth of the microwave to rise for at least 30 minutes for until the dough doubles in size.

Knead it in a floured board to bring it all back together then press out onto your cooking pan.  I have a pizza stone, but any shallow baking tray is fine.

 

Toppings:

Pretty much whatever I find in the fridge or pantry within reason.  On the pizza above from bottom to top:

Crushed tomato sauce (or pasta sauce base)

Crushed garlic

Tasty Cheese

Onion

Capsicum

Black Olives

Sausage

Pineapple

Mushrooms

Place into a warm oven (180c) on the bottom rack.  Cook until the topping browns, usually about 30 minutes.  When you take it out of the oven, cut it into slices but let it sit for a moment or two before serving.
