Pizza Pizza , Homemade Pizza

Pizza, Homemade pizza

I make pizzas in two, three different ways , following different methods or even playing with ingredients . The Pizza recipe I’m sharing today is kind of deep dish style pizza . The bread tends to be softer and thicker unlike thin crust pizzas . This is because of only one ingredient and that is EGG !!!!!!!!!! If you like thin crust crispy style pizza, omit egg but if you are fond of soft , thick bread for pizza base, use the egg . The reason behind I make pizzas in different ways just because though my husband and daughter both love pizzas, but the type of pizzas they love are not always the same !!!!!!!

Ingredients:

For Pizza dough:

All purpose flour 2 and 1/4 cups
Instant active yeast 2 tea spoon
Sugar 1 tbl spoon
salt 1 teaspoon
1 beaten egg
1 tbl spoon milk powder
Olive or any other vegetable oil 3 tbl spoon
Luke warm water ( not too hot), enough to make a dough ( around 1/2 cup or little more)

Topping:

Any topping of your choice. Beef, chicken , shrimp, veggies , egg , even nothing except sauce and cheese .. 🙂
Tomato sauce
Grated garlic 1 teaspoon
Sliced tomato, capsicum
Cheese , I used Mozzarella
Oregano (optional)

Procedure:

1. For pizza dough mix all the ingredients except oil . Be careful while adding luke warm water. If you use too hot water the yeast might get killed , and if you use room temperature or cold water, the yeast won’t wake up !!!!!! In both case the dough will not rise and everything will go in vain . So always use luke warm water in any recipe where you have yeast as an ingredient.

2. Knead well . The dough will be very sticky . Now add the oil and form the dough into a round ball . Now it’s easier to work with the dough. Put the dough into a closed lid box and place it in a warm place . It may take an hour or more to get the dough double in volume . If it becomes fluffy and double in volume , the dough is ready to make the pizza.

3.. Divide the dough into two balls. For this recipe I roll out the pizza bread . But in other recipes I often stretch the dough ,using my hand,into a flat bread .
Now working with one ball at a time , apply some flour on your hand and flatten the ball into a disk using your hand . Now on a lightly flour dusted surface roll out the disk into a bread , 1/2( half inch) thick. Don’t use any extra flour .

4. Rub the surface of the bread with grated garlic. Rub with tomato sauce . Add the topping of your choice . Add tomato , capsicum and cheese. Sprinkle oregano , if you want.

5. Bake in a pre heated oven on 400 FH for 15-20 minutes or until done .
