RECIPE FOR ITALIAN PIZZA



This pizza is quick and simple to make.  You can use any alternative toppings to your pizza that you like or substitute the mozzarella cheese for halloumi cheese.

Ingredients

Pizza base: 8 oz strong white flour
1 teaspoon dried yeast
1/2 teaspoon slat
125 ml warm water


Pizza sauce:
1 can chopped plum tomatoes
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic
5 mushrooms, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped basil
1 tablespoon chopped marjoram
Pepper to taste


Pizza topping:
1/2 onion
Roasted chicken
Chorizo
1 ball mozzarella cheese
5 peppadew peppers, sliced
5 mushrooms


Method
To make the tomato sauce gently fry the onion in a saucepan for 5 minutes until softened.  Add the chopped tomatoes, herbs, garlic, mushrooms and cook on a gently heat for 30 minutes until the sauce thickens into a paste.

To make the base place the flour, yeast and slat into a bowl and make a well in the centre.  Slowly add in the warm water and mix together. Place the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface and knead the mixture to form a smooth dough.

Stretch the dough using your knuckles to form a pizza base and place onto a 12" pizza tray.  Allow to sit for 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Place your tomato sauce over the pizza base and add the chicken, chorizo, peppers, onions, mushroom and mozzarella cheese on top.  Place in the oven for 12 minutes until cooked thoroughly and the base is crispy.

Yummy.
