Best Homemade Pizza – With real Italian style sauce

Let’s make an outstanding Italian style pizza with a merry assortment of vegetables, chicken, salami or tuna topped with the best quality mozzarella cheese to satisfy everyone’s tastebuds.

The Italian sauce that gives this pizza it’s unique taste is now no longer a secret as the authentic recipe is here!  All the required ingredients in this recipe are widely available in supermarkets, so once you gather all of them, it’s just so easy to put everything together.

My bread machine makes the dough so there is no hassle in sweating over kneading the dough.   If you do not have a bread machine or a kneading machine, you can simply buy frozen pizza base from supermarkets or making it from scratch which can give you the best of flavours and full credit to the glory of the outcome!

What you need for the dough:

 Plain flour500 g

 Let’s make the dough :

  • Pour 1/2 cup of warm water gradually onto dry yeast and mix thoroughly.  Keep aside
  • Break the egg into the 1/2 cup of milk and whisk
  • Add sugar, butter and salt to the milk and egg and combine all together
  • Now pour over the flour. Knead until all come together as a ball and no longer sticking onto your fingers. If you need a bit more water to get the right texture of the flour, add a little more warm water
