I’ve always seen things on television thinking it was magic do to them not knowing it was as easy as “abc” . The thought of always going to the icecream shop or a snack to get a cup of milkshake, made me try this and this is what I got out of my experiment. Why not try this at home and give me a feed back.
Handful of chocolate chips.

HOW TO MAKE THE RECIPE
Making pizza dough
Pour luke warm water to a mixing bowl.
Dip your finger and ensure the water is warm and not hot.
Hot water kills the yeast so avoid it.
Add yeast & sugar to luke warm water and stir it.
Set aside for 10 to 15 mins and allow to proof.
After 15 mins the yeast should activate and turn bubbly or frothy.
If the water doesn’t turn frothy by then, the yeast is inactive and cannot be used for the dough.
In this case discard and start afresh with luke warm water, sugar and yeast.
When the water turns frothy, add flour, salt and oil.
Next mix and make a dough adding more water if needed.
Knead the dough very well until very soft and pliable for about 5 to 7 mins.
The dough must be soft & elastic.
When you press down the pizza dough with your finger, it must dent and bounce back.
Apply a thin layer of oil to the bowl and the dough as well. Keep covered with a greased plate.
Move this to a warm place like a shelf in your kitchen.
Allow the dough to rise and double in size. It may take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours depending on the weather conditions.
Preparing pizza sauce
Meanwhile prepare the tomato pizza sauce.
To make sauce, heat oil in a pan and saute garlic until it smells good.
Then add red chili flakes and then onions if using. Saute until they turn slightly golden.
Add tomatoes, salt and sugar. Stir and continue to cook covering partially as it splatters a lot.
Cook until the sauce thickens. Add herbs and crushed pepper.
Mix and taste the sauce.
If needed add more salt, herbs and chilli flakes to suit your taste. Set this aside to cool.
Now rinse and cube the veggies. Separate the layers of onions.
How to make pizza
Preheat the oven to 240 C for atleast 20 to 25 mins.
Transfer the dough to the work area.
Punch the dough once to deflate it. Cut to 2 to 3 portions.
Gently shape it to a ball.
Sprinkle some corn meal over the pizza tray.
Place the pizza dough over the tray and flatten it slightly.
Add few drops of oil and begin to flatten it. Spread to a round disc of desired thickness.
If making a thick base & you own a small oven, then put the base in the oven and bake it for 5 to 7 mins.
If making a medium to thin crust pizza then just go ahead with the next steps.
Spread the pizza sauce as desired. Layer the veggies and then grated cheese.
Lastly sprinkle Italianl herbs and red chili flakes.
Bake for 10 to 12 mins until the base is cooked and cheese turns slightly golden.
Slice and serve hot or warm.
