My recipe for everyone’s favourite fast food! Bear in mind that the choices for toppings are entirely subjective to your personal preference.
1lb Flour 1 Tsp. Yeast
1 Tsp. Fresh black pepper ¼ Cup of Olive oil
1 Tsp. Salt ½ Cup of lukewarm Water (120°F)
1 Tbsp. Sugar
Sift the flour into a bowl and add in the salt, pepper, sugar and yeast. Stir the mixture together and then pour in the olive oil and warm water. Mix the dough well and then scoop the dough out of the bowl on to a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough for 5 minutes. The dough should be smooth and firm, there should be no lumps and it should not be sticky. Form the dough into a ball and put it into a bowl coated with olive oil so that as the dough rises it does not stick to the bottom and sides of the bowl. Cover the bowl over with plastic wrap and then with a kitchen towel and put the dough in a warm place to rise for 1hr.
4 Cups of Cheddar Cheese 1 Can of Diced Pineapples
1 Medium Sweet Pepper 1 Can of Mushrooms
1 Can of Mixed Vegetables 1 Cup of Ketchup/1 small can of Tomato paste
Salt and Pepper to taste 1 Small pack of Beef (about 0.265 kg)
Soy and Worcestershire Sauce
- While the dough rises prepare your toppings. Toppings are of course entirely optional as everyone wouldn’t always like the same toppings. For example there’s a whole debate on putting pineapples on pizza. Personally I don’t I have the heart to eat pizza without pineapples. So that will definitely be going on this pizza recipe.
- Cut the sweet peppers julienne, as thin as possible. Grate the cheese, put it in a bowl and set it aside in the fridge. Since the other ingredients mostly come from cans I simply empty them out into containers and put them in the fridge until I’m ready to put them on the pizza. Personally the pineapple chunks from cans are a little too large for me so I like to cut them each in half. I also like to dice the canned mushrooms into smaller bits.
- For the sauce I use either Ketchup or Tomato paste and I season it accordingly. With both the ketchup and tomato sauce I add 1 tsp. of oregano, a dash of salt and a few cracks of fresh black pepper. However with the tomato sauce, in addition to all the other seasons, I use the pineapple juice from the can of diced pineapples because the tomato sauce alone is quite thick and doesn’t spread well unless it is loosened up with more liquid.
- Finally I stir fry the ground beef, in a frying pan and season it with salt, pepper, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce.
- When the dough has risen. Scoop it out of the bowl onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead it a couple times. Roll the dough out and put it on a lightly greased pizza pan. Smear the sauce on the pizza, followed by your toppings in whatever order you wish. I follow the sauce with the ground beef, the sweet peppers, mixed vegetables, pineapples and then finally top it with the cheese in that order.
- Place the pizza into the oven and bake it at 400°F for about 15 minutes.
