My Family Homemade Pizza

Ordering pizza is a great and easy way to have a quick meal without all the fuss of prep and baking.  On the other hand, making you own homemade pizza with your family is fun!   Here is a very easy pizza prep that you and your family can do together.
Pizza Dough
2 c plain flour
1 sachet of dry yeast
1 tsp caster sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
3/4 c warm water

My homemade pizza sauce
1 c tomato sauce
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp caster sugar
salt and pepper to taste

1 c mozzarella cheese (grated)
1 medium onion, sliced into rings
ham, chopped
pinapple pieces


Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
Make a well at the center and add in the olive oil and warm water.
Mix well using your hands.
Knead until everything is incorporated.
Throw the dough onto the benchtop or wherever you are doing your kneading.  Do this every 3 minutes. Knead for 10 minutes.
Form into a ball and put in a lightly greased bowl.  Let rise for 30 - 40 minutes.  Cover with clingwrap.
When risen, punch the dough about 2x and knead for a couple of minutes. 
Roll out the dough and form a circle (9 inches) and the thickness that you want.
Lightly grease and flour a 9 inch diameter baking pan and place your pizza dough in it.
Top with your favourite toppings.

Pizza Sauce
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
Spread onto the pizza dough.
Add your fave toppings.

Bake in a 200C preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the dough is a bit brown on the edges and the cheese has melted.
