MOZZARELLA PIZZA



During the weekends when the girls are home, we try and cook together. This recipe is quick and non fussy as it doesn't have to be kneaded. I make the dough quickly and they do the rest. Yes Iv witnessed all sorts of shapes from amoeba's to stars.....and from hearts to castles! The rule is they eat what they make ;)There's always an overload of cheese....says who???

They have so much fun making their own pizzas. Its a lovely activity to do together! Try not to think of the mess and cleaning involved. 

These pizzas are very kid - friendly. They are soft and delish! If your looking for the thin crispy ones, this recipe is not for you.

This recipe makes 2 round pizzas.




INGREDIENTS:

for the pizza base:
warm milk - 1 cup
Instant yeast - 1 tbsp
sugar - 1.5 tbsps
salt - 1 tsp
salted butter, softened - 3 tbsps
extra butter for greasing
egg - 1
all purpose flour - 2.5 cups
extra flour for dusting

for the pizza sauce:
recipe in my previous post which can be found here

OR

if your feeling lazy like I did, just use the canned pizza sauce from the supermarket.I used prego.

for the topping:
I used grated mozzarella and pizza topping cheese from emborg

PROCESS:
  • In a bowl mix the flour and salt.
  • Combine the milk, yeast and sugar in a large bowl. Beat in the egg.
  • Add in the flour.
  • Grease your hands and mix the ingredients together. Use the butter to help 
  • Mix till it forms a dough. (no need to knead) Don't worry .....the dough will be slightly sticky and soft.
  • Transfer the dough into a greased bowl. Brush the tops with butter and close with a cling wrap and wait for it to double in size! Mine takes only 20 minutes
  • slightly flour the work surface and place your dough on it. Punch the dough down
  • Grease your hands again and slowly knead the dough for a minute. Add more flour if its too sticky.
  • divide the dough into two.
  • Roll it out on to a pizza pan. Adjust the dough on the sides using your fingers.
  • Bake in a pre heated oven for 5 minutes at 180 degrees 
  • Take it out and spoon some pizza sauce on it. Spread it all over . 
  • Finally add the grated cheese
  • bake in the oven at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes or till the cheese melts.
