By the amazing request of all of you i am putting up the recipe of my home made pizza from scratch. I make many types of pizza dough… using dry yeast or simply baking powder and kneading it with water or yogurt or milk or a combination of all 3!! I have learnt the secret to a good dough is kneading it and leaving it to rest. Franky all the doughs i make turn out soft, flaky and crispy so i guess the oven temperature has an important part to play too! I also make naan bread out of this recipe
1 envelope of dry yeast OR 1 envelope of baking powder (both are around 15 to 17 grams) that is 2-2.5 teaspoons
2 teaspoons of sugar
4 tablespoons of olive oil or melted butter
1 teaspoon of salt
350 gramos of white flour
1/2 cup of warm water
warm milk or yogurt or even water to knead the dough…yogurt should be room temperature
put the yeast (or baking powder) in a bowl with the sugar and the salt and pour the warm water on it and leave it to get active /frothy for a few minutes. Its easier to work with baking powder than yeast because if the water is too warm the yeast wont get frothy and you have to restart.
Add the rest of the ingredients and make a dough. Knead well for a few minutes and then keep it covered in a warm place( i keep it in the sun) for a few hours till it rises… (yeast will cause the dough to double in size… baking powder makes it rise less..but the effect is the same)
FOR THE SAUCE:
I just use tomato paste combined with tomato ketchup and chilli sauce(optional) and to this i add dried oregano, garlic powder.
FOR THE TOPPING:
Use pieces of chicken or paneer tikka, capsicum, mushrooms and mozarella cheese.
Roll out the dough and spread the tomato sauce and then arrange the chicken tikka/paneer tikka, capsicum mushrooms and mozarella cheese and place in a hot oven till done.
NOTE: The picture has been sent to me by my follower Paco Herrero…hes Spanish and he loves chicken tikka!!! He follows my video and uses Nitu Didi tandoori spice powder to make it!! Muchas gracias Paco….!!!!!!
