Homemade Vegetarian Pizza Recipe


INGREDIENTS:

Yield: 10" pizza

Pizza Dough:
160g bread flour
100g water
1 tsp instant yeast
1/2 tsp brown sugar
3/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp (13g) olive oil

Toppings: 
½ cup pasta sauce (HEINZ brand)
120 g pizza topping cheese (mixture of grated mozzarella cheese and finely grated parmesan cheese)
3 big button mushroom (sliced)
5 cherry tomato (sliced)
½ green pepper (sliced)
2 tbsp fresh basil leaves
1 tsp of dried oregano leaves
Black pepper

METHOD:
  1. Combine all the pizza crust ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer. Knead with dough hook until the dough comes together and forms a tacky ball, but does not stick to the bowl. If the dough is sticky, add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together in a ball. If the dough is too dry, add additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time. The total kneading time is about 10 minutes.
  2. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put it in a warm area to let it double in size, about 45 to 60 minutes
  3. Preheat oven together with baking tray inside at 220C (top and bottom heat) or 200C (fan forced) 15 minutes before baking.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface . Form into a ball. Roll the dough out 10 inches diameter. Place on a lightly greased pan or non-stick baking paper.
  5. Spread an even layer of pizza sauce over the pizza. Top with the pizza topping cheese. Place the sliced vegetables and top again with some cheese.  Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil on top.
  6. Slide the pizza together with parchment paper onto preheated baking tray.
  7. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and topping with dried oregano, black pepper and basil leaves. Slice and serve immediately.
