Pizza Dough Ingredients

  • ¼ cup of lukewarm water

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 1 package of dried yeast (7g)

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (plus extra for dusting)

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • For pizza toppings
  • 6 string cheese sticks of mozzarella

  • 16 ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese (450 g)

  • 1/2 cup Pizza sauce, (Pomodoro sauce is great on red pizza)

  • 1 teaspoon of unsalted butter

  • 1 tablespoon of Italian mixed herbs and spices

  • 4 ounces of various mushrooms

  • ½ green bell pepper ½ red bell pepper

  • 12-15 Slices of a red onion (If you have time we recommend pickled red onions)

  • 1 teaspoon dry oregano

Lets make Pizza with a Stuffed Crust

  • The yeast, sugar, and warm water should be combined in a basin of suitable size and then left alone for eight minutes.
  • Next, combine all-purpose flour, kosher salt, and olive oil in a large bowl by stirring vigorously until well incorporated.
  • Now, add the yeast to the flour mixture, and using a spoon, stir it together very well until it starts to come together into a dough.
  • After lightly flouring a clean area, transferring the dough to the surface, and starting to knead it, continue doing so until the dough becomes smooth and elastic. If more flour is required, add it in increments of a quarter cup at a time.
  • Now, grease a big basin and place the dough ball inside. Cover the bowl with a wet tissue and set it aside in a warm place for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until the dough has doubled in size and risen.
  • To prepare the veggies, slice or chop them into bite-sized pieces and set them aside. In addition, if you are not using string cheese, cut mozzarella cheese into half-inch sticks to use for the filling within the crust.
  • After the dough has twice in size, punch it down and set it on a clean surface that has been dusted with a little bit of flour.
  • In consideration of the shape of the pan, roll out the dough into a rectangle or a circle.
  • Transfer the dough to the baking pan carefully, and then preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C.
  • After ensuring that the dough extends beyond the edges of the pizza pan on both sides, position a cheese stick at each corner of the perimeter of the pizza.
  • After that, fold the dough rectangle over the cheese stick and squeeze the edges together to secure it.
  • Brush this mixture all over the crust and cover the edges that are holding the cheese. The butter should be melted, and the dried Italian herbs should be mixed in a small dish.
  • After that, evenly distribute pizza sauce all over the dough until it is completely covered.
  • Spread about half the size of the shredded cheese on top.
  • Pile on the sliced veggies!
  • Then place the remaining cheese on top, followed by the dried oregano, and spread it evenly over the surface of the pizza.
  • Bake for 15 to 18 minutes until the top is attractively browned and the food is cooked thoroughly.
  • Ten minutes of resting time is required before slicing it to serve.

What Kinds of Toppings CAN I ADD On a Pizza?

When you make your pizza, you can top it with any ingredients you choose, which is one of the most delicate parts. We always put a ton of vegetables on my pizza, and this recipe is a fantastic way to increase the number of vegetables you consume in a day. The following is a list of delicious veggies that work well when added to the pizza.

  • Olives, either black or green
  • Onions may be colored red, yellow, or white.
  • Bell peppers that are red, orange, yellow, or green
  • Mushrooms
  • Tomatoes cut into dice
  • Jalapeno slices
  • Broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, or squash, for example.


If you wanted to, you could also put meat on top of your pizza. This is a terrific way to make pizza a little more gratifying for those who eat meat, and it is also a fun way to utilize bits and pieces of food that have been left over from prior meals. Before putting it on the pizza, check that the meat you choose has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees

  • Sausage choices include turkey, chicken, and Italian.
  • Pepperoni or salami
  • Bacon crumbles
  • Ground pork, turkey, or beef that has been seasoned
  • Breasts of chicken that have been grilled or roasted and then diced

What kind of cheese can I use to make a pizza ?

Naturally, you can also personalize your pizza by using a variety of cheeses and sauces on it. This is another option. Even though mozzarella is my favorite cheese, there are occasions when a little cheddar, Parmesan, gouda, or fontina can amp up the taste. Using good goat cheese or feta adds an unexpected note of saltiness and flavor to the dish.

What are some different sauces I can use?

When it comes to sauces, the traditional marinara, olive oil and garlic, barbecue sauce, alfredo sauce, buffalo sauce, and even Ranch dressing are all excellent options that may provide a variety of delicious outcomes while retaining their distinct tastes.
