Homemade Pizza everyone!

Are you bored? Or hungry? Who am I kidding? Of course you’re hungry ahhahaha…
Another question with an obvious answer: Do you like pizza? Don’t even answer, I already know.
Now, we are all aware of what is currently happening with the Covid-19 outbreak and the importance of us staying in self-isolation at home.  But, don’t you miss the delicious taste of a bite from your favourite pizza!? I know it’s sad that you can’t go outside and eat it from restaurants but staying in is for the greater good!!!

But bear with me because I have a solution!!! HOMEMADE PIZZA EVERYONE!!!!!! That’s right! ”Amazingggg!” You can say that again!

It’s tasty, fast and easy to make! So what are you waiting for? Grab your brother, mom, dog ( hihi…), any family member close by and without further ado, LET’S GET TO COOKING “Ninja mode on”. 

Here’s the recipe to the pizzas we made! Although, feel free to make any adjustment for your liking. HAVE FUN! 

Mix in a bowl:

  • 2 1/4 all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. instant yeast
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt 

After mixing the dry ingredients, add:

  • 2 tbsp. of oil
  • 1 cup of warm water

Gently mix, and knead for 5 minutes and hive it the shape of a ball.
Grease another bowl with oil and place the pizza dough inside.
Then, cover it with a kitchen towel and let it prove for an hour. If you are careful and you let it in dry and warm temperature, the dough will double its volume :).
After that, place it on a non-sticky tray and form 12 to 16 inches round pizza shape depending on the thickness that you prefer.

Now it’s time to put the toppings:

  • Start with a layer of tomato sauce (that you can season to your taste).
  • The second layer should be cheese. You can combine more than one type of cheese (ex: quattro formaggi).
  • And the rest is up to you 🙂

Use what you have in your pantry/fridge…
Could be: mushrooms, slices of tomatoes, corn, salami, olives, peppers, spinach, shrimps, pineapple HAHAHA….. even leftover meat form your BBQ.
I like to season my pizza with BBQ spices and basil or oregano

Baking time:  Preheat your oven at 425-450* Fahrenheit and let the pizza bake for 15 minutes. BON APPÉTIT!!!

Miammmmmm!!!! Absolutely D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S !!! Told ya it was worth it! Hope you had as much fun as I did! It’s the little things that count and get us through tough times!
If you want, you can share your results with me on my social media or simply by email! This small gesture is not only cool but it allows us to interact via the internet without actually having physical contact! Which comes in handy during these moments! 

Remember to spread love and positivity, never lose hope and STAY SAFE!!! See you next time 😉
