Method – How To Make Pizza at Home
Homemade dough only requires a few simple ingredients and is a lot healthier than most store bought. Combine the water, flour, yeast and salt together in a large mixing bowl, add olive oil and milk and stir it well. Gradually add the water in the little quantity, mix well to form a soft dough.
Turn the dough out on to a floured work surface and knead it for about five minutes, until it gets smooth and elastic. Transfer the dough to a clean bowl, cover it with a muslin cloth and leave to rise for about 1-2 hours, until it doubles in size.
When the dough has risen, knock it back, then knead it again for 5 minutes, roll into a ball and set aside for 30-40 minutes to rise again.
Meanwhile, Place the pizza stone in the cold oven and then preheat to its highest setting. New ovens have pizza setting so go for that.
Divide the dough into however many pizzas you’re having and roll each out onto a lightly floured work surface to the size of a large dinner plate. Shape the dough into a round shape 0.5cm thick all the way to make the crust. Dust the wooden paddle with flour or with greaseproof paper and then transfer your pizza base to it.
Spread some pizza sauce and some grated cheese on the pizza base. Prepare the toppings by mixing together the sliced onion, capsicum, mushroom, tomato and start layering the veggies on the pizza base. Or add the toppings of your choice as desired.
Now the best and everybody’s favourite part is to spread as much cheese as you want and sprinkle some mixed Italian herbs, oregano and chilli flakes for taste.
Slide the base from the paddle straight onto the pizza stone and bake the pizzas in the oven for 12-15 minutes at 200 degrees until the base becomes crisp and golden-brown around the edges and any cheese on the topping has melted. (Depends on the highest temperature of the oven)
And your flavoursome pizza is ready! Cut into slices and serve hot.
