Homemade Pizza Recipe

650g Strong White Flour                                                        
1 Sachet of Fast Action Dry Yeast                                             
2 Tsp of Salt                                                                                
2 Tsp of Olive Oil                                                                       
50ml Warm Milk                                                                         
325ml Warm Water                                                                      

Measuring Jug
Weighing Scales
10/11inch Circular Baking Tray
Wooden Spoon 
Cheese Grater
Rolling Pin

Step One: 
First measure your flour and pour it into your bowl, using your fingers make a well in the middle of your flour and then pour your sachet of yeast, salt and olive oil into the well. Then fill up the rest of the well with flour. 

Step Two:
Then Pour in the water and mix it in. Pour the milk into a bowl and warm it in the microwave for thirty seconds and pour into the mixture. If the mixture is too wet then add a dash of flour, and if it too dry and falling apart then add some water. Do this throughout.

Step Three:
When your dough is firm (it should still feel slightly wet and warm) and has formed a ball then dust a surface with some flour, and start kneading your dough. Do this for about five minutes, and it will be a firm ball. When you think its ready, dust some flour onto a rolling pin and start rolling it out. As it stretches it will almost always ping back, keep doing this and eventually it will start to stretch out.

Step Five:
Depending on your taste you can keep rolling it until its quite think or you can make it thick if your prefer a thick base. Using Olive Oil grease the baking tray, and then place the dough onto the tray. Using a knife cut out any excess that may drape over the sides. (You can use this for the crust!) 

Step Six:
Using the excess place it around the edge and mold it into the shape of a crust. You can now use either ketchup or pizza sauce - I prefer ketchup and using a spoon I evenly apply this across the base. 

Step Six: 
Grate your cheese and evenly apply across the pizza, and apply any toppings you would like - I either go for pancetta or ham! (How original!) Then place it in the oven at 200° for around 10-18 minutes - I find optimum time is around 13 minutes! 

So there we go, my first recipe for my blog! I really love homemade pizza and its especially fun making it with my brothers or sisters! I hope you having a wonderful summer vacation if you live in America, and if your in England - or anywhere else then I hope you are enjoying your last few weeks at school before summer holidays!
