PREPARATION:

  • Start making the dough by pouring lukewarm water into a bowl.

  • Add yeast and sugar to the water and stir.

  • Set aside for 10 to 15 mins and allow it to activate and proof

  • Wait till you see bubbles rising and a frothy appearance.

  • Now add flour, salt and oil. I usually add garlic powder and dried herbs to the flour cause i like to spice up my crust a little but that's totally optional.

  • Mix well and prepare your dough by adding water as required.

  • Knead it well for about 10 mins till its soft.

  • Add some oil to the dough and cover it up tightly with plastic wrap and place it in a warm place.

  • Allow the dough to rise until doubled in size.

The sauce

  • Heat oil in a pan and saute garlic (whole) and chopped onions for 1 - 2 mins.

  • Now add oregano basil and red chilli flakes.

  • Add the halved tomatoes and some salt and cover the pan and let it cook til the peel starts coming off.

  • Cook slowly till the tomatoes are softened .

  • Once the sauce thickens, add sugar to balance it out and also add some paprika.

  • Let it cook for 3-4 mins and then add some ketchup.

  • Mix well and switch off the flame.

  • Let it cool completely and blend it for a few seconds.

  • Preheat your oven to 425 F.


  • Now roll out your dough and stretch it onto the pan.

  • Fold the edges to form your crust.

  • Poke holes in the centre of the pizza using a fork to keep the dough from bubbling while it bakes.

  • Add your prepared sauce , and one layer of cheese.

  • Put your toppings and add another layer of cheese.

  • Bake in a preheated oven for 15 mins

Slice the pizza and serve hot!
