Today I want to share with you one of the most popular party foods-the almighty pizza!Pizza is the ultimate comfort food as well and when all the ingredients are home made is a pure celebrations of ingredients and flavours.
In the last few months I have been loving making breads, cakes and I love touching bread dough.There is something magical and therapeutic about it. This time time I think I almost perfect it and if you are a beginner like me I cal almost guarantee you an awesome result.
Here is what you need to make the pizza base.
2 cups of plain flour
15 gr.of yeast (I use dry active)
1 teaspoon of sugar
a pinch of salt
1 cup of warm water
Method:Mix everything together in a good size bowl and let it prove in a warm place.Depending on your plan you can start making it in the morning and let it prove all day on a room temperature. If you don’t have much time simply put it in the oven at about 40 degrees.
Once the dough has doubled in size mix it again and you can start working with it.
Once you have made the roll, cut it into pieces and you can start rolling each base.
Here is what toppings I used, but as you can imagine you can put anything you like.
I used grilled mushrooms
grilled red peppers and
The sweetness on the leeks and the sweet peppers works really well with the chewy mushrooms and basil tomato sauce. Highly recommend it.
The beauty about this thin base is, that it takes only 5-7 minutes to bake.Preheat the oven to 200`C and place your baking tray in it.
