Pizza Moments

When I returned home from work on Saturday evening I was really craving a pizza. I thought about riding my bicycle to a wonderful pizzeria in my neighborhood but I was tiered, it was getting dark outside and the pizzeria was closing early that night. What was I to do? Make my own pizza of course.

Within half an hour I made the pizza and the end result was actually quite impressive. I sat down next to the fireplace to indulge in my pizza and I can't wait to make more of this pizza in the near future. It's quite simple to make and it really is delicious.

So when you're craving pizza take some moments to make the pizza and than enjoy the moments of eating it.



                                                 Homemade Pizza

Crust:

2 cups of organic unbleached white flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2/3 cups of filtered water or tap water
1/4 cup olive oil

Mix the ingredients together in a bowl and than place on a floured counter top. Knead the dough 2-3 minutes and than spread it evenly on a round or square baking pan. Sprinkle some olive oil on top of the crust and bake at 450 degrees for about five minutes.

Take the crust out and sprinkle the remaining olive oil on top of the crust.

Pizza Topping:

Pour a jar of tomato pasta sauce of your choice on top of the crust and than sprinkle 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce. If you're a meat eater you can put some pepperoni or ham on top of the pizza. If you're a vegetarian you can put some mushrooms, sliced green and red peppers on top of the pizza along with some finely chopped garlic.

Bake the pizza for about 10 minutes at 450 degrees and allow the cheese to melt perfectly. Take the pizza out of the oven and let cool for a few minutes on a rack. Sprinkle some oregano spice on top of the pizza.

Cut and enjoy your moments of eating homemade pizza made from scratch!
