While waiting for the dough of the whole wheat pretzels to rise yesterday, I whipped up another batch of pizza dough. I've been using this recipe that I got from Super Food Ideas :
8g Instant dried yeast
1/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp Sugar
3/4 cup Warm water
2 cups Flour
2 1/2 Tbsp Olive oil
In a mixing bowl fitted with a dough hook, combine flour, yeasr, salt, sugar & water, mix well, add olive oil & continue to mix on medium speed for 10 mins until smooth & elastic. Leave in a warm place, cover & let rise for 30 mins or until doubled in size. . Punch dough & mould into a round ball, stretch dough thinly onto a greased pizza tray.
I've forgotten to buy pineapple this time so went through the freezer to see what I can find in it. Ended up with sausages, pepperoni, home-made tomato sauce & I still have some cherry tomatoes in my fridge, so everything went onto the pizza followed by shredded mozarella cheese.
Bake the pizza at preheated 220 degree oven for 15 mins or until golden & crisp. Since three's no greens on the pizza, I steamed some broccoli to serve with the pizza, one express meal done......
* I've prepared 1.5x of the dough to make 2 pizza base, the other portion is in the freezer for our next pizza meal. To avoid an oily pizza, I used a greaseproof paper to line the pizza tray.
