Today I choose to make…Homemade Sunday’s Pizza. πŸ™‚

Ingredients

  • Fresh Cottage - 450-500 gr
  • Bacon - 200 gr
  • SΔƒsesc Salami - 300 gr
  • Cherry tomatoes - 300 gr
  • Fresh tomato sauce
  • Basil leaves - from the garden πŸ™‚
  • Olive oil - 2 tablespoons
  • Salt - 2 teaspoons
  • Sugar - 2 teaspoons
  • Yeast - 1 pack (small pack - 35 gr)
  • Flour - 3 mugs and a half
  • Warm water - 1 mug/glass

Kitchen tools

  • Big big bowl
  • Roller
  • Oven
  • and, of course, the hands to knead the dough!

How I did it

Step 1

Make the dough!
I added the yeast into warm water and left it dissolve. Once that has been done, I added flour into a large bowl, made a hole in the middle and started adding the rest of the ingredients: flour, salt, sugar, olive oil and started the kneading process. Once the dough was smooth and elastic I left it the dough grow and rest for about 1.5 hours in a warm place - I turned the oven on and add the bowl there ;). Tip: Instead of using the hands to knead, you can use a mixer as well, if it's easier for you.

Step 2

Prepare the topping
While I left the dough grow and rest, we took care of the topping (by "we", I actually mean "my fiancee") - chopping in small cubic pieces all the ingredients: cottage, bacon, salami - and the cherry tomatoes in half.
Once that has been done and the dough grew, I started rolling and stretching the dough.

Step 3

Add the topping!
I added baking paper on the oven tray and then added the stretched dough. Then, adding the topping - starting with the tomato sauce, adding it circular on the pizza dough and leaving untouched 1 centimeter until it reached the margins. Then, adding the cottage! Feel free to make it...cheese! πŸ˜‰

Step 4

Bake the pizza!
I added the pizza in the oven at 200 Celsius Degrees, for 20 minutes! 20 minutes after, in the kitchen was smelling...delicious! πŸ™‚ And the taste was the same.
The pizza dough was crispy on the outside and fluffy in the inside. Want a piece?
