HOME MADE PIZZA

Finally i made it ....yep!!it was my 1year dream....whenever i had or see Pizza i start craving to make myself at home....
But my hubby keeps on saying its not that easy to get the perfect one....i said give me a chance...atlast one day i got all the ingredients...guess how the final product would have come...very bad:((yep it came as hard biscuit...without properly cooked(i made wrong in selecting cheese variety).
After few days again i asked myhubby to give me one more chance...finally i made it:))...before this attempt i did lot of reading in net,, help from our bloggers who tried pizza at home..Thanks for all.



INGREDIENTS:

RECIPE FOR PIZZ DOUGH:
All-purpose flour--2 cups
Active dry yeast - 1/2envelope
Warm water -1/2 cup
Sugar- 1/4tsp
Salt - 1/2tsp

RECIPE FOR TOMATO SAUCE:

Big Tomato - 2
Tomato sauce - 2oz
Onion- 1 medium
Herbs - of your choice(i used oregano)
Basil leaves(optional)
Pepper - 2tsp
Salt- as per taste

RECIPE FOR TOPPING:
Romaine Lettuce - 2 cups
Tomato- 1 medium
Chicken - few pieces(optional)Avoid chicken if you are vegetarian
Broccolli- 15 florets
Mozzarella cheese - 1cup grated
Coming to topping..it is purely based on your desire..you can top with any veggies of your choice like mushroom,greenpepper,spinach etc.,


METHOD FOR PIZZA DOUGH:

In a warm water , add yeast and sugar keep aside for 10minutes...once it get rised,add that mixture to flour&salt..
Mix it well to form a dough consistency,cover the whole dough in air tight container...keep in warm place...

METHOD FOR HOME MADE SPICY TOMATO SAUCE:

Fry the chopped tomato and onion in olive oil.Pour little water,add herbs pepper &salt.Close the pan, once it is cooked, slow the flame.Add toamto sauce&allow it to boil well,try to mash it in laddle..


METHOD OF PIZZA TOPPING:
After 4hours the flour would have raised well.Now divide the dough into big size ball,roll it in rolling pin.Brush the surface with olive oil and start your topping.




Just spread Tomato sauce, top one by one veggies or non veg which you have for topping..Finally cover with cheese and place the pan into oven.

Bake pizza in 425F for 15-20minutes till it turns light brown colour...


Serve hot with seasoning and garlic sauce(optional)
