Pizza (Home made)

Pizza and me, god its just unbelievable. Just about two weeks ago did I taste the Pizza for the first time in my Life and completed my portion. Yes FIRST EVER PIZZA. I was a total Idli vada sambar case and no Pizza or Burgers kind of. But kuch bhi ho sakthaa hey. I started to eat Pizza and amazingly I prepared the Pizza myself at home. My friends in India would not believe this. Very difficult to believe but it turned out great.
Ingredients :
Maida : 3 cups (All purpose flour)
Yeast : half pack (3-4 gms) usual pack would be 7gms (Die Hefe in German)
Salt : 1 tea spn
Sugar : 1 tea spn
Warm water : 1.5 cup
Olive Oil : 3 table spoons (I used Sunflower oil though)

 Method of preparation : In a small bowl add yeast, sugar, salt and warm water(not boiling). Rest it for 10 min and then take another bigger bowl and add Maida, yeast mixture and Olive oil. Mix well and make it a soft dough, kneed for 2-3 min, coat a little Olive oil on the surface and Rest this dough for 1 hour. The dough would be almost double the size after an hour. Now kneed the dough again for 2-3 min and let it ferment for one more hour.

Then make 2 or 3 portions of the dough. Spread Maida on the chappati rolling tray and keep the dough on that and see that there are no sharp corners make it round. If you have a pizza making tray use it else take a non stick chappati making pan and put the dough on it and press it all over and make it even. As big and as thick as you want. Keep this on a low heat on the stove so that the lower part of pizza is a little crispy before we shift this into the owen. While the crust is on the flame, dress it up with what ever topping you need (options - spread tomato sauce, onions, capsicum, spinach, broccoli, fish, boiled egg). Spread enough cheese, transfer this on an aluminum foil and bake it in the Owen till the cheese turns golden brown. There you go, your pizza is ready. 

Home made Tomato Sauce : Heat a little oil, add finely chopped garlic, finely chopped green capsicum and tomatoes + tomato puree (skin out the tomatoes (6-8 Nos) by dropping the fresh tomatoes in hotwater and then take it out and drop in cold water. Skin can be removed easily and then chop half of it finely grind half of them to make puree) add salt, oregano (dried tulasi) and fry till the sauce gets thicker. There you are the pizza sauce is ready.
The topping I made was with Tomato sauce, onions, capsicum, spinach and the second pizza with Tomato sauce, tuna fish  and onions.

* 3 pizzas of around  15 cms diameter can be made with 3 small cups of flour.
We enjoyed the pizza.. relished it. Pizza and Coke oh man it was great.
