Ingredients for 2 medium pizzas

  • 500 grams all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of instant dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 3 tablespoons of oil
  • 1 cup of warm water
  • 2 cups of tomate sauce
  • 250 grams of grated mozzarella cheese
  • Dried oregano
  • 1 large bell pepper
  • 1 large onion


  1. Mix the yeast together with half a cup of warm water and a tsp. of sugar and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  2. In another bowl, incorporate the flour with the salt. Make a hole in the center and pour the warm water with the yeast, the rest of the warm water and the oil. Mix with your hands until you form a dough.
  3. If necessary, you can add more flour or more water, by tablespoons.
  4. Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes. Stretch and fold several times until smooth. Daub your hands with oil so it doesn’t stick. Take the dough and make a ball, put it in a greased container and cover it well with a damp cloth.
  5. Let it rest in a warm place until the dough grows twice its size.
  6. Then, knead again for 2 minutes and cut the dough into 2 parts.

  8. Preheat oven at 200C.
  9. Prepare the pizzas by adding the tomato sauce, grated cheese, onion and paprika cut into julienne strips and bake them for approximately 20-25 minutes.
