Who said pizza can't be healthy?!
Indeed it can be very healthy and nutricious, depending what ingrediants you use and if you make the pizza on your own, you have the power in your hands!
Making pizza at home is so fun, not only you can choose the ingrediants but you can also play with the flavours.
I've recieved this easy pizza dough recipe that is really fast to make, the main ingrediant of the dough is yeast which makes the pastery comes out really nice and plump.
I've chose the ingrediants of the topping by myself, it came out really delicious so if you'd like to try it you are more than welcome to! :)
IngrediantsFor the dough:
-2 cups of flour
-Pinch of salt
-2 tablespoons of olive oil
-50 grams of yeast
-1 tablespoon of sugar
-0,5 cup of warm milk
For the topping:
-chilli peppers (optional)
Let's do itStep 1
Gather all of the ingrediatns and prepare your working area
Crumble the yeast and add 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 tablespoon of flour
Warm up the milk but make sure it's not too hot, then pour it into the yeast and mix it precisley until the yeast is melted.
Heat the oven for 10 minutes and then turn it off and close it to trap the heat. Pour the mixture into a large bowl, cover it with a towel and place it in the warm oven. Leave it for a few minutes to grow
While the yeast solution is in the oven you can prepare the other part needed for the dough.
For this you need 2 cups of flour, a pinch of salt, 1 egg and 2 table spoons of olive oil. Place all of these ingrediants in a bowl and mix them well to make a crumbly consistency
In this step you can take out the yeast solution from the oven which should have grown a lot by now and mix it with the crumbles until you get a dough, you can add more flour if it's too sticky.
Knead the dough in a bowl for a while before taking it out, you can also add some dry basil and oregano to make it even more delicious
Sprinkle some flour on your worktop and roll it out, divide it into two because you can make two pizzas out of it depending on how thick or thin you want your crust to be
Spread the pizza dough and fold the edges to prevent the ingrediants from falling down, also you can do this if you like cripy edges. Spread some butter or olive oil on the pizza dough and near the edges
Spread some tomato paste on the dough.
If you would like you can diverse the tomato paste a little bit you can add some fresh blended basil and garlic just as I did in this recipe
Now you can arrange some fresh spinach leaves
Cut some red peppers into small pieces and place them on your pizza
Time for baby tomatoes!
Fresh basil leaves! they will give out a beautiful aroma and make the pizza taste so good
Arrange some salami slices, you can get smaller ones but I only had the big ones
Slice some white mozarella cheese and place on the pizza together with the olives
Sprinkle some grated mozarella cheese on top and place in the oven for 25 minutes
I hope you enjoy your homemade pizza
