Homemade Pizza

Today is special, Prince turns three months. Since it is his birthday, I made three large pizzas and half a kilo of pasta carbonara for dinner. This isn't my first time to make a homemade pizza, this is already the second , the first was when our Godmother and her family came to visit us. In the beginning of my first pizza experience I thought it is hard to make my own dough but with a little research and a help from my partner, it is a breeze to prepare the dough and to cook this wonderful looking and great tasting homemade pizza.

For the Dough - you will need

3 1/2 cups of all purpose flour, bread flour is even better
1 1/2 cups of lukewarm water-it has to be warm to make your dough elastic (its our little secret)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp salt
1 sachet of yeast

All you have to do is to mix all of the ingridients, kneed it for about five ot ten minutes until all the water is absorbed and the flour looks evenly mixed. This recipe makes three thin crust of dough for your homemade pizza
To  make your own Pizza Sauce you will need 1 small can of tomato sauce, 2 tbsp of tomato paste, 1/2 tsp of dried oregano, 1/2 tsp of dried basil, salt & pepper to taste, mix it all together and it is ready to spread on your pizza dough. The toppings depend on your preference, it can be vegetarian, meat lover or hawaiian like our favorite. You can be more adventurous and may want to try seafood. Most specially, the taste depends on your choice of cheeze wether cheddar or mozarella or mixed. Baking time is only about 10 minutes on the highest oven temperature. To achieve that crunchy pizza crust, use of pizza stone is recommended but if it is not available, pizza pan or foil is fine.
Isn't that lovely. Made at the comfort of your own home, as for me, my family love it, I love it!

Happy Three Months Prince
