Delicious homemade pizza

Man, homemade pizza dough is SO easy and SO good. I never realised it was so simple. I literally took me two minutes to make the dough and is a thousand times better than pre bought pizza bases. Homemade pizza sauce is just as easy and super tasty. Totally gonna bust out some made from scratch pizza more often.

Bake @ 260 degrees for 15 minutes

Pizza dough
1 packet/ 12g dry yeast
450 g flour
3 dessert spoons olive oil
1/2 ts sugar
1/2 ts salt
300 mls luke warm water (at body temperature)

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Kneed into a dough. Set in a warm place to rise, for an hour or so. Cut dough in two, kneed again, and roll out two pizzas. Roll thin for a thin pizza or keep thicker for a thicker base. Place on a oven tray generously oiled with olive oil. The oil and the high temperature of the oven made for a beautiful crisp base.

The topping possibilites are endless but I used:
-Yummy homemade pizza sauce with 1 tomato, a small jar of tomato paste, a tea spoon of oregano, a sprig of rosemary, a pinch of chilli powder, a clove of garlic, a teaspoon of honey, salt, pepper and a dash of olive oil. Blended together with a hand mixer.
-Red onion

Serve as the Norwegians do with some sour cream or tzatziki.
