Heart-shaped-pizza! A great way to celebrate romance!
Makes 4 pizzas(recipe for a single pizza is included down below)
1 batch of homemade bread dough (see below)
Once you’ve mastered this easy dough, you’re well on your way to pizza perfection.
3 pizza bases
- 375ml (1 1/2 cups) warm water
- 2 tsp (7g/1 sachet) dried yeast
- Pinch of caster sugar
- 600g (4 cups) plain flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 60ml (1/4 cup) olive oil, plus extra for brushing
Divide the dough into 4 balls, then shape into hearts if desired ( see pictures below)I even stuffed the crust this time and cut the pepperonis into cute little hearts
4 small cans of tomato paste
1 teaspoon sugar(dried onions, garlic, additional Italian seasons to taste or optional)
1500 g cheese grated- 1000 g mozzarella, 500 g cheddar
Divide the dough into four balls and roll out each and place on greased pizza pans. Spread with prepared sauce. Sprinkle with cheese and top according to your pleasure. Bake at 190 degrees Celsius (400 f ) for approx 15 minutes or until top edge and bottom crust is browned. I like to roll out two pizza and have them cooking while I prepare the remaining two pizzas. I also rotate the pizzas from bottom to top rack half way through the baking process ( approx 7 minutes) so they brown evenly.
BBQ Bacon & Chicken pizza
Substitute BBQ sauce for the flavored tomato sauce. Heat the BBQ sauce on the stove until warmed through.. Top with small cooked chicken pieces- diced or shredded and crumble crisp bacon and sprinkle on top.
Cut 500 gr of mozzarella cheese into sticks. Roll out the pizza dough larger than the pan. Place the cheese around the edge of the pan and roll the outside edge over the cheese and pinch shut.
