One of my best creation is pizza. My first attempt was a success. My family simply love the pizza I made. YUMMY.
- 1 cup of warm water (take note, not hot water)
- 3 1/2 cup of plain flour
- 2 teaspoon of olive oil
- 2 teaspoon of honey (I use New Zealand Munuka Honey)
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of dry baker’s yeast
Mix the salt and honey into the warm water. Add the yeast and mix it. Let it sit for 10 mins.
Gradually add the flour and olive oil and start mixing.
The dough will start to become heavy as you mix, knead the dough once it is too heavy to mix.
Knead the dough until it form a smooth ball. Add the water bit by bit. If the dough is too sticky to feel, add the flour bit by bit until it feel smooth. If the dough is too dry and does not form into a ball, add the water bit by bit.
Coat the dough with olive oil. Place it in large bowl and use a kitchen wrap/ plastic bag to cover. The dough will rise after an hour. Push to deflat it after an hour and let it sit for another hour.
After 2 hours, put the dough on lightly floured board. Pull out some of the dough(about the size of your palm). Roll it with a rolling pin until it is about 1/4 inch thick( thickness of the dough is up to individual, if you like thin, crispy base, roll it thinner.) Place it in a rounded pizza pan.
Punch some holes using the fork/toothpick in the dough. This is to allow the air escape while you bake the pizza.
Put ready made tomato sauce / pizza sauce (sauce can be bought from dept store). After that, put your favourite toppings such as ham, mushrooms, pineapples, capsicum etc. (toppings is up to you to put 🙂 )
Place the grated cheese all over the pizza ( Buy pizza cheese from supermarket). If you love cheesy pizza, you can put more.
Place the pizza into the oven and bake at 400-450 F for about 20 mins or until the crust is light brown.
***I also stuffed some cheese into the crust. (Stuff crust Pizza) hahaha.
