How to Make a Pizza - Step by Step

June 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 231

Pizza bases are very easily available in the market these days, however if you want to make them at home, here is the recipe.

Preparation Time: 25 mins Baking Time: 5 to 7 minutes. Baking Temperature: 150ºC Makes 2 bases

Ingredients 2 cups plain flour (maida) 2 tsp fresh yeast, crumbled 1 tsp sugar 1 tbsp olive oil or any other 1 tsp salt

Method

Combine all the ingredients except the olive oil in a bowl and knead into a soft and pliable dough using enough water. Add the olive oil and knead again. Cover the dough with a wet muslin cloth and allow it to prove till it doubles in volume (approx. 15 to 20 minutes). Press the dough lightly to remove the air. Divide the dough into 2 equal parts. Roll each portion into a circle of 250 mm. (10") diameter and 6 mm. (1/4") thickness. Prick each circle 4 to 5 times with a fork. If you wish to make your pizza in a pan on the gas, use at this stage. Bake at 150ºc for about 5 to 7 minutes.

Tips

Fresh yeast can be easily purchased from your local bakery in small quantities. You can also use half the quantity of dry yeast instead of fresh yeast for the above recipe and follow the instructions on the packet. You can also use a ready pizza base for any pizza.

NOTE: This pizza base can be topped with your favourite toppings.

Ingredients (serves 4)

160ml (2/3 cup) passata (tomato pasta sauce) 2 x 225g pkts Boboli 97.2% fat-free pizza bases 2 zucchini 16 (about 450g) green prawns, peeled leaving tails intact, deveined 120g fresh low-fat ricotta, drained on paper towel 20 small fresh basil leaves

Preheat oven to 220°C. Place 2 baking trays in oven to heat. Spread the passata evenly over the pizza bases.

Use a vegetable peeler to slice the zucchini lengthways into long, thin ribbons. Place the zucchini on the pizza bases. Arrange the prawns among the zucchini. Crumble the ricotta into large pieces and scatter over the pizzas.

Remove the baking trays from oven. Place the pizzas on the baking trays and bake in oven, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 15-20 minutes or until the prawns curl and change colour and the bases are crisp and light brown.

Scatter the basil over the pizzas and serve immediately.
