Pizza with homemade tomato sauce

Pizza with homemade tomato sauce
for the dough
2 cups flour
1 tbsp yeast
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp butter
1/4 cup milk
1 egg
water to knead very little if needed
Pizza with homemade tomato sauce
Mix everything together and knead into a smooth soft dough. Leave the dough aside to double about 1 to 2 hours depends on the humidity etc :)
* If you are not using instant yeast, froth the yeast and sugar with about 2 to 3 tbsp warm water.
I use the same dough to make savoury baked buns.
Pizza with homemade tomato sauce
for the sauce
2 cups tomatoes
1 tbsp oregano optional *
1 tbsp oil
2 tbsp onion
1/2 tsp garlic
1/2 cup minced meat *
1/4 tsp chillie powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp turmeric

Heat oil sauté onion, garlic and minced meat. Add tomatoes, spices and salt. Cook until the sauce is thick, if adding oregano add towards the end.
* Other types of herbs, that you prefer can be substituted.
* If vegetarian make the sauce by sautéing onions, ginger and garlic. Then add the tomatoes with the spices and let it simmer till the sauce is thick.

1 cup cheese grated
1/4 cup red pepper
1/4 cup green pepper or jalepeno
1/4 cup onion
1/4 cup tomato
1/4 cup mushroom
1/4 cup pineapple

* the toppings can be anything you prefer, use some or all of the suggested.

Roll the dough and prick all over it with a fork. Then put the prepared sauce and put some cheese over it before putting the toppings. Put more cheese over the toppings.
Prepare a pizza stone with olive oil and cornmeal. Bake at 400F for 10 to 15 minutes till the bottom of the pizza is golden brown.

  11. Through the years I've made pizza plenty,but never with milk and usually for a pie this size, one teaspoon of sugar.
    This is brand new idea for me,not Neopolitan.
    I'm going to make my next pizza like this. I have never put olive oil on my stone, just cornmeal (the meal acts as ball bearings).
    Based on your picture, it might be different but still good groceries.
    Thank You.

  42. Your version is filled with flavor. Never put milk in my pizza dough - so you know I'm going to try. The sauce sounds very southern-Italian - Calabrian. And the toppings are fresh and lovely!

  48. Your homemade tomato sauce looks so tasty and delicious!! I've only ever made pizza with tomato paste- when I think of homemade tomato sauce, I think of the more watery type which doesn't go well on pizzas ;) But this looks amazing! I'll have to make my own pizza and sauce one day!

  72. This is a unique pizza to me. I always just have a plain tomato sauce and then meat on top of that. The preparation of a sauce with meat and all those spices does sound like it would be a lot more flavorful. I will need to try this, Your pizza looks delicious.
