Yummy pizza for lunch

I have been craving to eat pizza, but sadly my husband's sensitive stomach seems to have bad reaction towards take out pizza so I decided to make one to compensate my craving-ness. 

The pizza tasted YUMMY!!! Like really YUMMY!!! okay, maybe because of the toppings that I choose, but nevertheless this recipe is a keeper. I rolled the dough to 2 cm thin, but when I prebaked it doubled in volume. Next time I make this I will make sure the dough is 1 cm thin since I like thin crust pizza like the one at Domino's :D

If you have never work with yeast before, making the dough may take a while. But hey, practice makes perfect ;)

Pizza dough

1 package yeast
1 cup warm water
3 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar

1. In a small bowl, combine yeast with warm water. Set aside for 10 minutes until frothy.
2. In a large bowl  combine bread flour, olive oil, salt, sugar and yeast mixture. Add more flour if necessary until a stiff dough has formed. Knead the dough about 1 minute. Cover with damp towel, and set aside until it doubles in volume, about 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
3. Roll the dough, and prebake for 10 minutes. Cover the prebake dough with tomato sauce and favorite toppings and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Tomato sauce

1 can tomato paste
1 can tomato in a can
1 garlic glove, minced
1/2 onion, diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste

1. Stir fry the onion with olive oil in a pot until tender. Combine tomato paste and tomato in a can in the pot. Combine in garlic, oregano, salt and pepper.
2. Simmer for about 20 minutes.

Cooking time for this pizza was approximately 1 hour. Prebake the dough to make sure it wouldn't become soggy after putting the tomato paste on top. Good luck! :D
