Remember the cooking thread? *thwacks you upside the head with a peanut*wanna try my hand at making my own bases on ze weekend ....... must find recipe
Pizza - from scratch!
4 cups of flour
1 2g sachet of yeast
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup luke-warm water
Mix together by hand and add flour every now and then until it has a firm yet soft consistency. Stuff in a large bowl, cover with a cloth and place it in a warm/sunny area for about an hour.
In the mean time you can start making the tomato covering/pizzaiola (no idea if that's the correct term, I found it on a site and it sounds know-howy )
Chop and fry one onion and 2 gloves of garlic
Add 2 tins of chopped tomato and cook until it's reduced
Blend in a food processor and spread it over the base when done!
Should make 3 bases.
My favourite toppings are:
Pineapple - other half likes it
The Gorgonzola and peppadews work wonderfully together. As a vegetarian there are also some fake strips of "meat" that I like to add as well - I love them. Also fake bacon bits
Oh, and the bases are crispy bases when thin! Can also leave them to rise a little to make them thicker, but I like my bases thin, so.. Also, when rolling out the bases, it helps to roll them out in flour so they don't stick to the pizza tray and they end up being very.. er... nice :x I likes flour ^.^
