Ingredients for the Pizza Dough:
- 2 ½ Cups All-purpose Flour
- 1 Teaspoon Instant Yeast
- 1 Teaspoon Sugar
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- ¾ Cup Warm Water
Ingredients for the Pizza Toppings:
- ½ Cup Pizza Sauce or Marinara Sauce
- 1 ½ Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- Red Chili Flakes (Optional)
- Assorted Vegetables (E.g., Bell Peppers, Mushrooms, Onions, Olives, Tomatoes, Etc.)
- Dried Oregano and Basil (Optional)
- Step 1: Preparing the Pizza Dough. In a Mixing Bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, instant yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix well. Make a well in the center and pour in the olive oil and warm water. Mix with a spoon until the dough comes together.
- Step 2: Kneading the Dough. Transfer the dough onto a clean, floured surface. Knead the dough for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Add a little flour if the dough is too sticky.
- Step 3: Proofing the Dough. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover it with a clean kitchen towel. Let it rest in a warm place for about 1-2 hours or until the dough doubles in size.
- Step 4: Assembling the Pizza. Preheat the Hawkins Pizza Maker Cake Baker on medium heat for a few minutes. Meanwhile, punch down the dough and divide it into two equal portions. Roll out one portion into a round shape using a rolling pin.
- Step 5: Cooking the Pizza Base. Carefully place the rolled dough onto the preheated Pizza Maker. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the base is slightly cooked and starts to puff up.
- Step 6: Adding the Toppings. Spread half of the pizza sauce evenly over the partially cooked base. Sprinkle half of the shredded mozzarella cheese on top. Now, add your desired vegetables and sprinkle some dried oregano, basil, and red chili flakes for added flavor.
- Step 7: Cooking the Pizza. Cover the pizza with the glass lid and cook for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese melts and the crust turns golden brown.
- Step 8: Repeat for the Second Pizza. Follow the same steps for the remaining dough and toppings to make the second pizza.
- Step 9: Serve and Enjoy. Carefully remove the pizza(s) from the pizza maker using a spatula. Slice them into wedges and savor the delightful homemade pizza.
