Pizza Recipe:

  1. Take a small vessel, add one cup water and 1 tbsp sugar in it. Mix it well and let the sugar dissolve. Then sprinkle the dry yeast in the vessel and mix well. Let the mixture wait for 8-10 mins
  2. Now take a big bowl and add flour, salt as per taste, little amount of oil and mix them well
  3. Next pour in the yeast mixture in the flour and combine everything nicely. Make a thick dough, which should be soft in texture. Add water frequently if needed. Once the dough is ready, cover the bowl with clothe and keep it for resting (around 30 mins to 60 mins)
  4. After the dough is fully rested, divide it into pieces according to the size of the pizza you want to make. Turn these pieces into round smooth balls. With the help of your hands or a chapati roller make a thick base. You can use cornmeal to avoid the base sticking. Now transfer this base onto the cooking tray
  5. You need to pre-heat the oven to 500° before cooking your Pizza
  6. Brush off the cornmeal from the base and grease it well with olive oil
  7. Then transfer 1/2 cup sauce on top of the Pizza base and spread it evenly with the help of a spoon. Next transfer the mozzarella slices to the base. Then you can add other toppings such as Black Olives, Crisp Capsicum, Paneer, Mushroom, Golden Corn, Fresh Tomato, Jalapeno, Red Pepper and Baby corn
  8. Once you complete adding all the topping to the base, put the Pizza into the oven. Bake it until the crust is golden and the cheese is melty. Pizza takes around 15-20 mins to cook
  9. Once the Pizza is ready, take it out of the oven and garnish it with some fresh basil leaves and more cheese

Tips to make perfect Pizza base:

  1. Slowly proof your dough in the refrigerator, when you keep it for resting
  2. Don’t stretch the cold dough, let it first turn to room temperature and then start making balls
  3. Use the right flour for your Pizza
  4. Don’t over knead the dough, doing this removes the moisture and turns your base dry
  5. Prep your workspace with olive oil to avoid sticking
  6. Press well the dough before turning it into the base by stretching method
  7. After you stretch the dough, make sure to press little in the middle as well leaving the one inch edge. With your fingers make space for the toppings
  8. If you cook Pizza very often, then get yourself the Pizza stone. This absorbs the moistures correctly, not making the Pizza too dry nor too moisty
  9. Don’t add more water to make your Pizza dough, instead use your hands to turn them soft and stretchy
