Sumptuous Pizza Recipe( Easy to make)

I enjoyed this delicious beef pizza with my mother- in-law and kids. We so much enjoyed ourselves with good homemade drink.

The taste was heavenly and also very easy to make. Can be taken as dessert or main meal

Ingredients

3 cups Bread Flour
1 Tsp Yeast
1 Tbsp sugar
1-1/4 Cups Water
3 tbsp Olive Oil
1/4 Tsp Salt

Pizza Sauce

3/4 Cup Tomato paste
1-1/2 Tbsp seasoning
1/2 Tbsp Onion powder
2 cloves Garlic minced
1/2 Tbsp Black Pepper
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
3/4 to 1 Cup water
1/2 Tsp Brown Sugar
1/4 Tsp salt
Mozzarella cheese

Preparation

Stir together the Tomato paste, seasoning, Onion Powder, minced garlic, black pepper, olive oil, water, brown sugar, and salt to taste and set aside OR FRY THE SAUCE SAME WAY YOU DO YOUR STEW( I fried mine).

Combine the yeast, sugar, and warm water in a large bowl and leave it to sit for about 5 to 10 minutes until the yeast is dissolved and foamy, then stir in the olive oil and salt.

Add the flour and mix it until all the ingredients are well combined, then transfer it to a work surface and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic.

Form the dough into a ball and place it in a bowl that has been coated with olive oil, turn it around so that it can be evenly coated with the oil then cover it with a plastic wrap or kitchen towel and leave it to rise for 1 hour or till it’s doubled in size.

Punch down the dough to remove the trapped air then transfer it back to a lightly floured work surface and divide the dough into your choice of size.

Use your hand to push the dough from the center, then onwards while still maintaining a circular shape. If you are finding this hard to do, you can just use a rolling pin.

Dust the Pizza pan with some cornmeal or grease with butter and place the flattened out dough on the pan and continue to push the dough till it reaches the size of your pan making sure you create a lip around the edge for the crust. Now leave this to rest for about 5 minutes before adding the toppings.

Brush the dough with some olive oil, concentrating more on the edges this will help to achieve the golden brown crust.

Spread the sauce on the dough, add the Cheese and your favorite toppings( I used onion, fresh tomatoes, green pepper, red pepper, thinly shredded fried carrot with sliced beef meat or chicken meat that is roughly blended or pieces with knife).

Then bake for 10 to 12 minutes.

Honestly, Pizza is best enjoyed while sipping a drink
