Step 2: The Dough

To make the dough you need to assemble following materials:

  • 300g Flour
  • 1 packet dry yeast
  • olive oil
  • a small cup of warm water (approximately 150 ml)
  • a pinch of salt
  • weighing scale
  • plastic bowl

There are several steps to make the dough for the pizza.

  1. Take the flour an weigh off 300 grams using the weighing scale.
  2. Take the flour and add it to the bowl.
  3. Add the yeast, salt, and water to it.
  4. Start to knead the mixture.
  5. During this process add olive oil to the dough, until it gets smooth and a little moist.
  6. Knead it for about 5 minutes. This way the ingredients get well mixed and it will be smoother.
  7. Once finished put it back in the bowl and cover it with a cloth. Place the covered dough on a warm spot (heater for example) and leave it there for about 45 minutes. It will grow significantly during this time period. It is important that you put it in a warm spot.

Step 3: The Sauce

You will need the following things for the sauce:

  • four tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • a clove of garlic
  • olive oil
  • dry chili/ chili powder
  • a pan
  • wooden spoon

To make the sauce you will need to take the vegetables first. Peel the skin of the onion and of the garlic. Then cut them into cubes. Put them aside and take the tomatoes. If your tomatoes are soft, you can only cut them in halves. If not, cut them into cubes as well. Put some oil into a pan and heat it up. Once the oil is hot you can add the onion and garlic to it. cook it until the onions are glassy. Then add the tomatoes to it. After a while they should be squashy enough to take the spoon and sqish them. This will give you the sauce. Add the chili to the sauce and let it cook for a while. Optionally you can add tomato paste, but it is not needed primarily.

Step 4: Rolling Out the Dough

For rolling out the dough, you will need

  • some flour
  • a rolling pin
  • a smooth surface (tables are optimal)

To roll out the dough you need to make sure that you cover the surface you use for rolling out the dough with flour first. This way the dough will not stick to the surface of the table. Also put some flour on the rolling pin, so that the dough does not stick to the rolling pin. Then you tame the dough and put it on your surface. Use the rolling pin to flatten out the dough. Turn the dough around once and then, to flatten it from both sides, and to make sure that it does not stick to the surface.

After you have rolled out the dough until it is big enough to cover your baking tray, or thin enough, take the dough and place it on the baking tray. Use your hands to fold over the edges of the dough, so that you create a crust. You are then ready to put the topping on the pizza.

Step 5: The Topping

For the topping of the pizza you will need several things. These are:

  1. cutting board
  2. knife
  3. a salami
  4. one onion
  5. a green pepper
  6. two mozzarella
  7. 200g black olives

You will start of with cutting the mozzarella into slices. These should be thin, so that you can cover as much space as possible with the cheese. Place the cheese on the sauce. cut the salami, pepper and onion into slices as well. Place the salami first, and then add the onion and the pepper on top of the mozzarella. To finish off, add the olives. Add as many as you want. The topping depends fully on your taste and preferences. You could use whatever you want for a pizza topping. You are then finished with the preparation process. The next step is to bake the pizza.

Step 6: Baking the Pizza

Once the topping is put on the pizza you can now bake it. Heat up the oven on 200°C. After the oven has gained the temperature insert the pizza on the baking tray and let it cook for approximately 15 minutes. The time the pizza will need to be cooked can vary. It depends on the thickness of the bottom and crust, the temperature etc. Just take a look after 15 minutes and check regularly afterwards, until your pizza looks the way you like it.

After you cooked it, take it out of the oven, cut it into pieces and go ahead and eat it.

Bon appetite!
