Cooking
  • Mix all ingredients for the dough.
  • Knead if processor is not used. Thorough kneading (10 min) if done by hand - to evenly distribute the yeast and to work the gluten in the flour (gluten will absorb water and will thus stretch and rise with the yeast. Gluten gives shape to the pizza base).
  • Spread (Pat) dough on mould. Brush surface with olive oil.
  • Top with pasta sauce or tomato sauce.
  • Add veggies and feta cheese.
  • Top with mozarella cheese.
  • Leave to rise (can heat oven to 600C or 1400F and put pizza in oven OR rise over hot water)
