by - 8:38 AM

This is the Pizza I made today for my husband. He rated it well, very well actually. So this is my very own recipe, hope you enjoy it too:

First make the pasta base :)

Ingredients: Flour, Yeast, Water, Olive Oil, Honey, Salt.

Add 5g of yeast to one teaspoon of honey, add 3 tablespoon of warm water, mix it and let it react for 10mins.

When mixture becomes fluffy, you can add 500g of flour, pinch of salt and mix them well.

When it become crumbly add water and knead it for 20mins, until it becomes the dough.

Let it rest for 30mins and punch down the puff up pasta and divide it into two parts.

Roll it down to two doughs (one for each pasta base).

Add oil and let it rest for another hour.

Flatten it with your palm or roll it to the thickness you like, adding some flour every now and then so it won't stick to your hands.

For the pasta sauce :)

Ingredients: Onions, Tomatoes puree, oregano, salt.

With two large onions, diced them and fry in olive oil til translucent.

Add one can of Pomodoro sauce (Italian tomatoes are longish types, very juicy and delicious) :)

Add half a cup of water and simmer til the fragrant of the pizza sauce fills your entire kitchen :)

Add fresh oregano and salt. Let it cool down before adding to the pizza base.

Add toppings: in this pizza photo above, Hungarian Kolbasz (Smoked sausage), Trappista cheese, cherry tomatoes and some minced garlic are added. You can top it with whatever you prefer.

There were some ham slices in this one too ;)

Bake it for 8 mins at 200 deg Celsius, when ready top it with Rucola. And enjoy!
