Why order for pizza that gets to you cold after 2 hours of waiting when you can make a customized version at home? The beauty of this pizza is that it allows you make it your way from start to finish. Thick crust or soft crust, you decide. Serve warm!
320 g all-purpose flour
1 tbsp yeast
1 cup water
1 tsp salt
2 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp pizza sauce
8 pcs olives
4 pcs tomato
1 pc onions
2 pcs green bell pepper
50 g mozzarella cheese
1 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp semolina
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease the baking sheet and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, mix yeast, 2 cups of flour and 3/4 teaspoon of salt. Add the water-warm (120 degrees F), oil and mix well with your hands to form a sticky dough.
Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and add half of the remaining flour to it and knead until the flour mixes well with the dough. Add the remaining flour and knead well. This process should take about 4 minutes.
Cover the dough and allow to rise for about 10 minutes.
Roll the dough into a circle. Adjust the thickness of the dough circle to your preference. Sprinkle some semolina on the greased baking sheet. Transfer the dough to the baking sheet and leave covered for another 10 minutes.
Bake the pizza crust in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove the pizza crust from the oven and spread the pizza sauce on it. Add the onions, tomatoes and pepper, all chopped. Sprinkle the olives (pitted), black pepper and remaining salt on the pizza crust and top with the cheese (shredded).
Return to the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and brush sides with olive oil. Cut the pizza after 5 minutes.
