Pizza Recipe

I'm not a fan of pizza,I usually only take a bit and leave everything for people at home.So I thought if perhaps I make the pizza myself I'll be able to enjoy it since I know the ingredients in it,and since I get to choose what to put in the pizza.

Truth is if you have once made bread sandwich or bagels then you can easily make this pizza.If the pizza turns out to be a disaster then you can simply try again til you get it right.

I heard you can buy pizza dough in some places.i'm not a pizza fan so I'm not sure whether they sell it in my place or not.
But I made this pizza from scratch.The goodness of making pizza crust yourself is that you'll get to choose whether it will be crispy,thin,thick or soft.
This home made pizza has it all, it's crispy, chewy and soft.

How to make pizza

√ All purpose flour
√ Yeast
√ Water
√ Oil
√ Salt
√ Sugar

Toppings Ingredients

√ Ketchup
√ Cheddar
√ Tomato
√ Onion
√ Green pepper
√ French Polony
√ Salami
√ Mozzarella
√ Thyme

Flour - i used  Unbleached all purpose flour.If you have bread flour you can use it,bread flour actually makes the pizza chewier.

Yeast - I use clover brand instant yeast.This yeast gives me great results.I love this brand of yeast because it does what it says.You only need 2 and a half Tablespoons to get your job done.

Water - 1/2 cups of water is the perfect amount.I use warm water so that the dough rising time will be cut down.

Oil - Tablespoons of extra virgin oil adds flavor to the dough.

Sugar - Sugar increases the yeast activity and it makes the dough tender.

Salt - There is no pizza without salt.

Cheddar - I couldn't use cheddar on it's own so I had to include mozzarella.

Tomato ketchup - ketchup is a great condiments.
