Pizza is a flat, open-faced baked pie of Italian
origin, consisting of a thin layer of bread dough topped
with spiced tomato sauce and cheese, often garnished
with anchovies, sausage slices, mushrooms, etc.
Are you still buying Pizzas when you can make yours and enjoy with your desired toppings?
The last time I ordered for a pizza, I got it for about N4000 then I had to spend more to order for additional toppings of my choice. I ended up spending more that N6,000 and the taste was not as good as these ones i made by myself.
You are free to use any toppings of your choice but for this recipe, I used pepperoni and mushrooms.
For Pizza Sauce:
1/2) can Tomato Paste
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
For Pizza Crust:
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, or more as needed
2 tablespoons instant Yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/3 cups very warm water
1/3 cup oil
1 package Pepperoni
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
handful sliced mushrooms
For the sauce:
Combine all sauce ingredients with 1/2 cup water in a pan under medium heat for 5 mins.
set aside for flavors to develop while making crust.
For Pizza Crusts:
Combine 2 cups of flour with the dry yeast, sugar and salt.
Add the water and oil and mix until well blended (about 1 minute).
Gradually add enough remaining flour slowly, until a soft, sticky dough ball is formed.
Knead for about 4 minutes, on a floured surface, until dough is smooth and elastic. Add more flour, if needed.
Cover dough and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
Divide dough in half. Pat each half (with floured hands) into a 12-inch greased pizza pan OR roll dough to fit pans.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Top the crusts with the sauce, shredded cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions and sweet peppers.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes until crusts are browned and cheese is melted.
Serve warm and Enjoy!
