How To Make Pizza!

In The Name of Allah, The Giver of All..The Sustainer..

i made pizza tonight and i would like to share with you how i did it :)

there are 2 main items, the dough and the paste. the toppings is optional. 

the paste and toppings
anti clock wise , tomato, beef salami, cheese block, mushroom, a table spoon of oregano/mixed herbs, salt, black pepper powder, garlic powder (grind dried garlic), brown sugar, a small bowl of tomato puree, onion. the pineapple is also optional..

preparing the dough

put in 3/4 glass of water or a glass of water (about 250 ml) in a bowl and add one big table spoon of brown sugar
add 2 teaspoon of instant yeast or a packet of it (15-20 gm)
the yeast impact (i think the micro organism were multiplying)
add 3 cups of bread flour or multi purpose flour
add a teaspoon of salt
add approximately 1/3 cup of olive oil
mix them using a machine or you can use ur hand.
leave it for 30-40 minutes.
 meanwhile.....(while waiting for the dough to rise, prepare the paste)
separate the stem and the cap. the stem is to added in the paste and the cap is for the topping

cut into slices
dice all except the salami.  you can cut into any shape you like
pour some oil in a pot. use medium fire
put the diced onion first. fry until it becomes soft
put in the tomato, mushroom stem, mixed herbs, salt, brown sugar, pepper, garlic powder and stir for 5 mins
add half glass of water and let it shimmer for 10 mins
add the tomato puree
close the pot with its cover and leave it in small fire for 10 mins
turn off the stove and leave it to cool off..

after 30 minutes ........................
look at that! the size become almost double
i have to add somemore flour as my dough was very sticky. this is the beauty of bread making, you can always adjust the ingredients.
as i am making an individual pizza, i made some small portion and start to knead.
5 balls. leave it for 10-15 minutes. meanwhile you can start to heaten up the oven
look at that! after 10 mins
oil the pan
shape them to whatever size and shape you like, it doesnt need to be round :)
dont forget the grate the cheese..what pizza means without it
apply the paste and put the toppings ingredient.  sprinkle some grated cheese on top..

bake them in the oven for 15-20 minutes with medium fire
its easy, delicious and nutritious!

good luck!
