Recipe: Homemade Pizza

THIS Pizza recipe is to die for, that's all I have to say today, make it and you can thank me later, well thank my mom, cause actually she makes it!


For the dough
250gr pizza flour (if you can't find it a.p. flour works as well)
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 dry yeast
1 tsp oregano
1/2 cup lukewarm water

For the tomato sauce
5 medium-large tomatos
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp oregano
1 tbsp olive oil

This is completely up to you but this is what I use
1 packet fresh mozzarella
200 gr sliced bacon (or pancetta, or ham, or anything you fancy really!)
grated gouda cheese (or any cheese that melts nicely)


First prepare your tomato sauce so it can cool down. Grate your tomatoes with a large grater. Place in a sauce pan over low heat together with the salt, pepper, sugar, oregano and olive and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. Take out of the heat and reserve.

Start preparing your dough. In a large bowl mix with a fork the lukewarm water with the yeast, sugar, salt, olive oil, oregano. Slowly add the flour in and mix/kneed well until you get a soft dough. Place in a clean bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest for about 30 minutes, you should see your dough grown in this time.

Preheat your oven to 180ÂșC. 

When the dough is ready place it on a work surface and kneed it softly. I have a pizza pan (this one!) but you can use baking sheet (right?). Shape the dough in the pan but pressing it with your hands softly. Smear the tomato sauce over the top of the pizza dough base. Next up is the mozzarela, I usually cut it in slices but you can tear it if you like it best, then place the bacon and on top the grated cheese. YUM! Scatter a bit of extra oregano (and while I haven't tried it I'm sure it would be delicious if you scattered a bit of chilli too). Season with salt and pepper. Place in the pre heated oven on until crisp and golden (about 25-30 minutes but keep and eye you don't want to burn it!)
