Hi Sweetpeas!!!!Home made pizza was and is a very easy dinner idea that everybody at home loves. After finding a new kind of yeast, the prep time is reduced to zero and I can make pizza in short amount of time.
I am not compensated to promote this brand of yeast, but I want all those moms out there who are looking for fast and easy ways to put meals on the table to know, that this Yeast actually works.
Nothing beats the aroma and taste of homemade pizza. The herbs in the crust make it a delish on its own. Plus you can make it as per your liking, garlic, rosemary and chili flakes take the crust to another level.
For the dough,
Prep Time; 10 mins to mix the dough
10-12 mins for first bake
Makes 4 Thin crust Pan pizzas
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup All Purpose flour
1 Tbspn dry active Pizza Yeast
1 Tbspn Sugar and 1/2 cup warm water to bloom the yeast
1 Tsp Dried Rosemary
1/2 tsp Dried Basil
1 Tsp Garlic powder
1 Tsp Oregano
1 Tsp red Chili Flakes
2-3 Tbspn Olive Oil and
Salt for taste
water as needed to make the dough
Store brght Pasta Sauce
Grated cheese to spread on the pizza
1/2 Green bell pepper
1/2 red pepper
1 big onion
3/4 cup Broccoli-Steamed
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbspn oil
In a bowl, take the dry active yeast, sugar and warm water and mix well. Keep it aside to bloom for 10 minutes. The mixture will be frothy, if the yeast is active. If the yeast is old discard the mixture and get fresh yeast. I always prefer to check the yeast then move on to the dough.
In a mixing bowl, take the flour, add the salt and seasonings, garlic powder, rosemary, basil, oregano and little oil to start the mixing, as you move along making the dough, add the oil and knead into a soft dough. Cover and keep it in a warm place till you roast the veggies and get the toppings ready.
When the dough rises, it is ready to be baked into some yummy pizzas. Punch out the air from the dough and take small balls and roll it into small discs. I usually bake these pizza bases for 10-15 mins in a pre-heated oven at 350degrees F.
In a wok, on high heat, take 1 tbspn oil, and add the veggies, let them caramelize for 5-7 mins without stirring often, add salt and pepper and remove from heat, let them hang out in the hot wok.
Take the base, spread the pasta sauce, arrange the roasted veggies and sprinkle lots or little cheese and bake @ 400 degree F till the cheese melts.
Enjoii the hot and delicious pizza that's filled with homemade goodness of healthy ingredients.
