The toppings can be altered to ones taste easily. The important part is getting the pizza dough right.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Rest Time: 2.5 hours
Bake Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2 large pizzas or 1 large pizza and 3 pan size pizzas.
For Pizza Dough:
All purpose flour: 3.5 cups
Salt: 2 teaspoons
Olive oil: 4 tablespoons
Sugar : 1 teaspoon
Warm water: 1 1/2 cups (110 degrees F) + 4 tablespoons
Instant dry yeast: 1 envelope (2 1/4 teaspoons)
Pizza Sauce : 1/2 cup
Green pepper: 1/2 sliced thin
Onion : 1/2 sliced thin
Button Mushrooms: 2 sliced thin
Jalapeños : 2 cut in coins
Fresh mozzarella cheese: 10-12 pieces
Shredded mozzarella cheese: 1/4 cup
Corn meal: 4 teaspoons
Take the yeast, sugar and 1.5 cups of warm water and rest it for 15 minutes so the yeast rises.
Take the flour, salt, 2 tablespoons of oil and add the yeast. Knead into a soft dough adding a tablespoon of water as needed.
Grease the bowl with 2 tablespoons of oil and place the dough in it. Put a plastic wrap on top of the bowl and keep it in a warm place for 2 hours.
The dough will double the size. Punch it down, make the dough into 2 balls and plastic wrap them for 10 minutes.
Place the pizza stone in the oven and preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. (If you are not using stone, the pizza can directly put on the pan and go in the oven once it's pre heated).
Place some corn meal on the bottom of the pizza so it doesn't stick to the pan or the stone, make the pizza shape pressing with your hands. The edges should be a little thick so the sauce and cheese doesn't run out.
Place all the toppings and bake for 15-17 minutes.
Enjoy the delicious pizza topped with some red chili flakes if you want.
