CHEESY, MELTY CAPSICUM TOMATO PIZZA from a scratch!

I am always amazed and awed when baking with yeast, I think it is the most satisfying of all my baking experiences.The aroma of fresh pizza baking in the oven is unparalleled and makes everyone's tummy growl.You can only imagine how difficult it was to keep the wolves at bay while I clicked photographs :)
Baking the pizza base is so easy and effortless and the results are delightful, crisp on the outside yet tender bread inside, the toppings can be altered according to preference.
makes 3 large pizzas
for the pizza base-

  • Flour-315 gms
  • Fresh yeast-2 teaspoons
  • Warm water-180 ml
  • Salt-1 teaspoon
  • Olive oil-2 tbsp
  • Sugar-1 tsp
for the topping-
  • Sliced tomatoes-2
  • Sliced capsicum-2
  • Sliced onion- 1 large
  • Oregano
  • Tomato ketchup
  • Pizza cheese
  1. Method-Sieve flour in a large bowl, add oil and salt.In another bowl pour in warm water, add sugar and yeast , leave for a few minutes, knead a dough with this warm water, yeast mixture till a smooth, silky result is achieved.
  2. Leave in an oiled bowl covered with cling film for an hour.
  3. To assemble- roll out dough into discs and leave on baking tray or half an hour, bake this base for 15-20 minutes till just beginning to colour, remove and spread ketchup as well as other toppings as desired, top with grated cheese and oregano, bake in a hot oven till cheese has melted and sides of the pizza are golden.Enjoy!
