Pizzaaa - Totally Home made

This pizza is home made, from the scratch. Not with store bought pizza crust or Pizza dough.




Ingredients:
All purpose flour - 3 cups (This yielded 2 pizzas of the size given above)
Dry Yeast - 1 sp
Salt - 1 sp
Sugar - 1/2 sp
Oil - Few Tbsp
Pizza sauce - Any Tomato sauce should do.
Grated/ Shredded Mozzarella cheese - 1 cup

For Toppings :
Onion
Tomato
Capsicum
Jalapeno
Black Olives

-Take about 3/4 cup of lukewarm water (more or less as required to make dough for 3 cups of flour) and add yeast to it. Yeast dies, if water is hot.
-To this, add salt and sugar. Mix well. Let it settle couple of minutes.
-Now, add 1 cup of all purpose flour to the yeast mixture,Let this set for 15 mins .
-Add the rest of 2 cups flour into and mix well and make a nice soft dough adding 2-3 spoons of olive oil. Close it with muslin cloth let this set for 1 hr or till the dough double its size, in dark place. -Depending on the yeast the time of fermenting differs.
-Once it doubled, knead the dough again, rolling it in and out with hands until it becomes soft. This to remove the aeration that has formed inside.
-Let it set for another 30 minutes.
-Pre heat the oven to 450'F
-Take out the dough after 30 mins, knead it well and spread as a thin layer on a Tava.
-Switch on the heat on low flame and heat for couple of minutes. This is to cook the bottom a little before baking it. Baking may bake the top well and bottom comes uncooked sometimes.
-Once the bottom is slightly cooked on the low flame, transfer it to a well greased baking pan
-Top the dough with pizza sauce (I used Pasta sauce)
-Add the toppings of your choice, spread the shredded mozzarella cheese on top leaving the corners.
-Brush the sides with olive oil and pour few drops on top too, and bake it for 15-20 mins or till you see top getting golden brown.
-Take out the pizza and let it set for 10 mins and then u can cut it to pieces and enjoy.
