Homemade Wholemeal Pizza


So excited to be blogging again. It has not been easy but this time, I will try and put up recipes once a week. I am still working on this new blog, so please bear with me. Right, Pizza recipe...

Making pizza is one of the easiest things to do, you do not need to know how to bake to make this. This recipe is simple and ideal for those who have not made dough before and you don't need a food processor for this one. Here we good!


WHAT IS REQUIRED

300g wholemeal bread flour
1 teaspoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon olive oil
200ml plus 2 teaspoons of warm water

FOR TOMATO SAUCE

3 tablespoons Nigerian stew

FOR TOPPING

3 slices turkey breast (Chopped)
1/2 cup sweet corn
Handful olives (sliced)
1 cup pizza cheese (you can add more)

These ingredients makes 2 pizzas
cooking time 8 minutes
Prep time, less than 25 minutes plus 30 minutes period for the dough to rise


METHOD

Set oven to 220C/gas 8. Line oven pan with baking parchment papers.


Making the dough
Pour in the flour into a mixing bowl, stir in the yeast and salt. Make a well, then pour in 200ml warm water. Using a fork or a wooden spoon, mix all together until the dough comes together.

Tip onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for about 5 minutes or until the dough becomes smooth. Place the dough in a warm place and allow to rise for 30 minutes. But if you want a thin crust, then no need to leave for 30 minutes.

Bring out dough, add the olive oil and combine. Tip again onto a lightly floured work surface, knead dough again for about a minute, divide into two portions and roll out each dough using a rolling pin. Slightly fold the edges as seen in the pictures. Lift and place the rolled out doughs onto the baking parchments.


Adding the sauce
Smooth sauce over bases with the back of a spoon. Scatter the sweet corn, turkey breast slices, olives and cheese. Put the pizzas in the preheated oven. Bake for 8 minutes or until crisp. Serve hot or cold.


NOTE:

You can change toppings to what you love and the sauce to what works for you. I love my Nigerian stew; never disappoints.
