Cheese Pizza

Homemade pizza is much easier to make than you think. This recipe will help you make cheese pizza in your kitchen whenever you want.

I used a 12 inch cast iron pan to make this cheese pizza. However, any baking pan that can accommodate a 12 inch round pizza will do just fine. If you are using a nonstick pan, transfer the pizza to a cutting board after baking.

I prefer to use my homemade pizza sauce for making this cheese pizza. But you can always use your favorite store-bought pizza sauce too.

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Instant yeast
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup Warm Water
  • 3/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil
For Toppings
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup Pizza sauce
  • 2 cups Mozzarella shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried oregano
  • Olive oil as required
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, add plain flour, instant yeast, sugar, salt, and two tablespoons of olive oil. Add warm water and knead well to form a soft dough. This will take about 10 minutes. Cover and set aside the dough for about 2 hours or until doubled.
  2. Knead the dough again for about 5 minutes, then transfer it to a lightly greased 12-inch baking dish. Spread the dough gently with your hand and pinch the edges to form a thicker border crust. (if it is difficult to stretch the dough, let it rest for another 15 minutes) Poke the crust with a fork to prevent creating air bubbles while baking. Cover with a damp cloth and set aside for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven at 220°C for 15 minutes. Lightly brush the top of the crust with olive oil. Bake for about 10 - 15 minutes or until the top is lightly golden.
  4. Take the crust out from the oven and spread the pizza sauce. (too much sauce will make the pizza soggy) Sprinkle the cheese and dried oregano on top.
  5. Continue baking for about 10 - 15 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned and the cheese is melted.
  6. Let the baked pizza cool for a few minutes, then cut and serve.
  7. NOTE - No electric machine is needed for this recipe.
  8. If you prefer, you can use a mix of mozzarella and cheddar.
  9. One cup = 250 ml, one tablespoon = 15 ml, one teaspoon = 5 ml.
