Homemade Pizza

Mommy and I planned to celebrate our 6th anniversary in Shakey’s or Pizza Hut since both of us are really craving for pizza. Unfortunately, our anniversary falls on the centennial celebration of the Iglesia Ni Cristo and heavy traffic was reported going to SM Marilao.

To satisfy our pizza craving, I made a homemade one. I used the ready-made Del Monte Italian Style Pizza Sauce.

Homemade Pizza


You will need:

For the dough:
3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp dry yeast dissolved in 1 cup lukewarm water
1 tbsp salt

For the toppings:
I used sautéed ground beef, cooked ham, bell pepper, cheddar cheese, onion rings and sausage.

Here’s how to do it:
To make the dough, mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the dissolved yeast. Little by little, add water until the mixture until you will achieve a dough that is not saggy. Cover the bowl with cling wrap or aluminum foil and rest in a warm place for at least 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 175ºC.

Using roller pin, flatten the dough and place in a greased pizza pan. Spread over the pizza sauce and place the toppings. Bake for 20-30 minutes.

Be sure to bake the pizza as soon as you placed the sauce and toppings.

Do not let it rest in a warm place, instead put it inside the refrigerator or the dough will continue to rise or expand.
