Hello my glamorous friends I hope you are well and long time no talk . I don't know about you guys but I love pizza from traditional tomato base ones , to pesto base one , to avocado base ones honestly the list is endless . I think that just goes to show I love pizza . Also I would like to know what's you're favourite pizza ? and what places that do amazing vegan pizzas in London ?  .     




Pizza Sauce
  1. One can chopped Tomatoes
  2. 4 Basil leaves
  3. 1tsp vinegar
  4. 1tsp sugar
  5. pinch of salt
  6. pinch od pepper
Method :
  • Add all the ingredients  in a blender and blend till the mixture becomes smooth and well combined .
  • Place in a saucepan and mixture heat toughly though and reduce  , this should take a least 6mins .
  • After 6min you should have thickened mixture and you and feel free to add any additional condiments and spices you like .
Pizza Curst / Dough
 
Ingredients
  • 2¼ tsp active dry yeast
  • 1⅓ cups warm water
  • 3½ - 3¾ cups organic white flour*
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs salt
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
* You could also add oregano to the mixture too *

 
Method
 
  1. Combine the yeast and the warm water in a large bowl. Let stand for 5 - 10 minutes until yeast is dissolved and begins to foam up.
  2. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Turn the dough onto lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes. The dough should be smooth but not  sticky.( if does become sticky simply add 1Tbsp of flour and knead till you get a smooth dough )  Coat  a bowl with olive oil, and add the dough. Turn the dough over to coat completely with oil. Cover with a clean and  dishtowel and leave to rise in a warm place.
  3. Punch the dough down and divide it in half. and place the rest in the freezer or fridge .
  4. Roll your dough into a ball and let it rest, loosely covered, for about 10-15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 450F. Dust your baking sheet. The dough will be fairly elastic, so you’ll have to stretch it out with your rolling pin. Place the dough on your baking sheet.
  5. Now the toppings! . Add the pizza sauce you made earlier however , you could add  pesto ( which is one of my favourites ) ,avocado or just plain olive oil.  After you added you base and the rest of your toppings and why not try no cheese version or you could add Nutritional yeast flakes for cheesy flavour .
  6. When you’re ready, place your pizza in the oven. Depending on your shape and thickness  the dough will take about 20 minutes.
