Picture of BASKETBALL PIZZA
Hi everybody! I am Density and I am 14 years old. I love playing basketball and I love eating Pizza so now I will show you how to make a Basketball Pizza. You do not have to stick to the exact same recipe. You can change the ingredients to your liking. I suggest you read through the instructable before you begin so you can see what you need and what to do. I hope the instructions are simple and easy to understand. Enjoy and have fun making and most of all eating it.

Step 1: INGREDIENTS AND MATERIALS

This is the list of ingredients you will need for 2 bases. If you are only making one then you can halve the ingredients:

- 1 cup of milk
- 1/2 a cup of oil
- 500g of flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tablespoon of salt
- 1/2 tablespoon of sugar
- 10g of yeast

These are the topping ingredients that are needed. You can change the proportion and ingredients:

- 200g of cheese (of your choice)
- 140g can of mushrooms
- 200g meat (of your choice)
- 1 pepper
- 2 slices of pineapple
- pickles (optional)
- sauce (of your choice)
- Around 32 olives (preferably without pips)
- butter

These are the materials you will need:

- 100ml cup
- Bowl
- Scale
- sieve
- cheese grater
- knife and cutting board
- spoon
- oven
- microwave
- oven pizza dish

Step 2: Base

Measure 500g of flour and sift it into the bowl.
Add the yeast, sugar and salt to the flour. Mix them all together with a spoon.
Add the 2 eggs and mix.

Step 3:

Add the oil to the mixture
Warm the milk up in the microwave for 30-45 seconds. Then add the milk in the bowl and mix it for about a minute.

Step 4:

Mix it with your hands until it looks like image 3
If the dough becomes to hard, you can add some oil to soften it and make it easier to manage.
Cover the bowl and put it in a warm room. This will make the dough rise. Leave it there for around 30 minutes.

Step 5: Olives

While you are waiting for the dough, get the olives ready. Cut the olives vertically in half. If they have pips you must cut around the pip like image 1 and 2. If the don't have pips just cut them in half.

Step 6:

Put some butter on the oven pizza dish so the dough does not get stuck to it. When the dough is ready, spread it out on the dish (image 2 and 3). Bend the sides of the pizza inwards to form a crust.

Step 7: Sauces

Since my grandfather likes hot sauce and I like sweet chili, we put one sauce on each half. You can choose what sauce you want on and how much.

Step 8: Toppings

Cut the meat into small pieces and put it on the base of the pizza.
You can cut up a pickle into long pieces and put it on as well.
Add some mushrooms and cut up pineapple.
Cut the pepper up and put it on.
Now for the most important part. Grate the cheese and put it on top of all the toppings.

Step 9: Basketball

Make a curved line from the olives like image 1
Make a small semi-circle on the one side of the pizza. The bend must go in the same direction as the first line. (Image 2)
Make another semi-circle on the other side of the pizza. This time the bend must be in the opposite direction as the first one (Image 3)
Make a curved line that crosses through the First line you made (Image 4)
Finally make a circle around the whole pizza (Image 5)

Step 10: Bake

Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius (390 degrees Fahrenheit).
Put the pizza in and leave it for around 20 minutes or until it becomes a light golden brown.

Step 11: Finished and Ready to eat

Once the pizza is ready, it is time to taste your master piece. This is the best part of the whole process.

It looks very "bouncingly" tasty :-) Especially with the Extra Extra Hot Nandos sauce ...
