Double Cheese Pizza With Homemade Pizza Sauce

For pizza sauce:

1. Wash 1 cup cherry tomatoes in water. Cut a cross at the bottom of each tomato.

2. Soak tomatoes in boiling water for a little while to make it easy to peel them.

3. Heat a sauce pan. Add in 2 tsp olive oil. When the oil heated, add in 2 cloves chopped garlic. Sauté till aromatic.

4. Add in all the peeled cherry tomatoes. Stir fry and press with spatula or a spoon. It’s fine to have some tomato lumps. That actually makes pizza taste better.

5. Add in 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp dried herbs, 1 tsp sugar and 1 tablespoon tomato sauce. Mix all the ingredients well and set aside to cool down.

I found a very inspiring video on YouTube. And this enthusiastic Italian cook showed everybody how he made a perfect pizza. I just followed his guide.

For the pizza dough:

1 1/2 cup bread flour

1/2 cup warm water (more or less due to different flour)

3 g instant yeast

1 tsp salt.

Mix flour and salt in a bowl. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Pour yeast water into flour. Knead into a dough. If the flour is too sticky, then add more flour. Fold the dough several times. Then place it in a bowl, cover with plastic and let it rise till 2 times big.

Preheat oven to 220 degree C.

Press the dough into a big thin pizza dough. Brush pizza sauce. Sprinkle a little salt. Drizzle olive oil. Grate Parmesan cheese. Then sprinkle mozzarella cheese (I’m always very generous with mozzarella cheese, that’s why my pizza always looks white on the surface. 🙂 ), and basil leaves. Drizzle a little olive oil again.

Into the oven and bake for 7 mins.

The whole kitchen is full of sweet fragrance . It smells so so good.

So far, this is the best pizza I’ve ever cooked. It tastes so so good.

Very soft, and cheesy. Tomato sauce I made has a special texture and adds more flavor to the pizza. Every ingredient works so well.

For pizza sauce:

Small onion 1 (optional, if you don’t like, you can delete it.)

Butter 15g

Flour 15g

Milk 200g

Salt

Black pepper 

Mixed herbs (optional)

1. Heat butter in the pan. When it melts, put in flour. And quick stir evenly.

2. Add in chopped onion. Stir a bit.

3. Pour in milk. Turn to low heat. Keep stirring till sauce becomes condensed.

4. Sprinkle some salt, black pepper and mixed herbs.


The sauce is done.

I used 250g spinach. Cut off the root and wash clean. Put spinach in boiling water for around 40 seconds. Add in 1 tsp salt. Then take spinach out and drain.

After cooled, squeeze the water out of spinach. Try to squeeze very hard. After squeezing, chop the spinach into small pieces.
Brush the pizza dough with sauce. (Remember to poke pizza dough with fork before this step). Then sprinkle spinach and bacon bits. Last, spread cheese as much as you like.

Preheat oven to 230 degree C. Bake for around 10-12 mins.



My husband loves it.
