Preparation of the Homemade Pizza

  1. Add both the sugar and the yeast in the warm water and let the mixture sit for 10 minutes, until bubbles are formed on the surface.
  2. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a hole in the middle and add the olive oil and the yeast mixture. Use a spoon and stir until shaggy dough is formed.
  3. Knead the dough for 10-15 minutes on a clean surface until the dough is soft, smooth, and bouncy. Finally, form the dough into a taut round.
  4. Place the dough inside a clean, large bowl that is greased with olive oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rise for at least an hour, or up to 24 hours.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead for another minute then cut into 4 equal portions and shape into rounds.
  6. Lightly flour the dough and cover it with a kitchen towel and let it rest for another half an hour to an hour whilst you can prepare the sauce and any other ingredients.
  7. Preheat the oven between 450-500˚F (230-260˚C).
  8. Make the tomato sauce: Mix the salt to the can of tomatoes and puree with an immersion blender and mix until smooth.
  9. Once the dough has rested take a portion and start to stretch and press a thin round
  10. Make it thin since it will slightly shrink and puff up while baking.
  11. Sprinkle semolina onto the baking sheet and place the stretched crust onto it. Add the sauce and toppings that you desire.
  12. Put the pizza on the preheated pizza stone or pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until the crust and cheese is golden brown.
